    Maduka Okoye was named the best Sparta Rotterdam player of the season. I hope Mr Jimmyball and co can see this before they will come here and say that Rohr liked playing the boy because he is half German or because he belongs to the same agency.

      Ignore those bigots who are foot soldiers of segun Odegbami.

       
  • Hmmm… Why is it that it’s those 2 that received dead threat after nation’s cup that are now raising from the dead?
    Okoye and Iwobi! Two of many reasons we didn’t qualify for world cup especially, Iwobi.
    I hope Paseiro can use Super Eagles to pick up from is Bad records. Materials are there for u. Rohr had shown you the door, it’s now up to you to walk through it.
