    Meanwhile the curtains came down on a wonderful women’s world cup with USA picking up the trophy for a record 4th time.
    I hope some of the conspiracy theorists on this forum who claim FIFA hates Africa, also took time to follow the rest of the tournament after the our ouster. I hope you all saw how the rules of FIFA applied to all teams irrespective of continental affiliations.
    The earlier we braced ourselves up for being worthy to compete at the global stage the better for us. It was such a shame that even basics of football like understanding the rules still eludes us.
    Worse still are the fans who neither take time to understand the game or update themselves, but would rather revile in consoling themselves with all sorts of conspiracy theories. “…Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery…”

    And how does Shehu deserve an award when I am yet to see how good he is as a right back Mumuni must stop all this dirty nepotism. What happened to Etebo who has been consistent?anyway I hope it is an award as par their sponsorship and participation of the celebrity work out as stated above and got nothing to do with on pitch performance with regards to Shehu!

        Lol.. I was shock when reading human comment..
        Please try to read the story again and come back to comment

        The story does not have anything to do with total nations cup 2019..
        It’s just a gift for a team which igalo and abdulahi are entitled to.. But because the two players are not around while other received the gift.. That is why they brought the gift to Egypt for them..
        Simple as that..

        Musa, mikel and others in the team during the time the award was due have all collect their own except this igalo and abdulahi….
