    Ighalo, Amoo, Simon, Osimhen, Zaidu, Bassey, Balogun, Ishaq, Kelechi and few others have a huge role to play and shall remain in the ‘A’ list of the 1st assistant coach, Yusuf. Odion Ighalo most especially is an excitement to any team.

      Good…but you are not Paseiro.

        I can’t wait for the Foreign Coach to come and save us from these sentiments. This man is singing the praise of 34 year old man (Allegedly) who plies his trade in Saudi League!!

        The more i read such comments on this platform, the more i realize how difficult it would be for Nigeria to progress as a country. It is these funny mind sets that form the basis for us picking the people to govern us. Failure is certainly not an accident.

        Progressive countries are picking young exciting talents, we are dwelling on old and tired talents that had retired before. Even the Best Coach in the 1st round of afcon 2022 was not confident to play him in the cauldron that is the kumasi stadium and could only bring him in a few minutes to the end of the match in Abuja which highlights the deceitfulness of Eguavoen. They themselves know the truth, they see them in training. They see how the younger ones run rings around Ighalo and Musa. Yet this will not stop them from inviting them into the team.

        As for Musa, it is best to leave the scene whilst the ovation is loudest. What kind of captain sits on the bench for this extent of time? Can anyone point out any captain in the EPL who sits on the bench all season?? We should leave this deceit that he is leading from the bench, True Generals earn their stars/stripes on the battlefield. If they are not confident to start him every game then they should give the arm band to some other player.

        Why are we this way?? Even the NFF President stated it that his preference for a foreign coach is because of their objectivity. Eguavoen invited Onazi playing in division 2 in the saudi league for goodness sake! Yet when Ndidi was injured they opted for Bonke. Another proof that they know the truth but chose to be deceitful.

          No need to talk anymore. You have said it all @Golden Child.

          Truth is bitter though but most of us on CSN here won’t like what you just said.

          We are the problem of ourselves in this country.

          We have Showorę and Mogalu to be the next president
          of Nigeria but Nigerians preferred Tinubu, Atiku, Jonathan and the rest of the carbals squad. What a shame, what a country.

          They did not learn from Sai baba Sai Buhari. We did not learn anything from next level.

          Next level of poverty, insecurity, bad roads, no infrastructure and Nigerians can’t be proud of 24/7 electricity since 1960. What a country.

          We have Olofinjana, Emelalo to be the next NFF President but Nigerians opted for Amaju.

          We can’t keep deceiving ourselves like this kę.

          We have so many abundant talented strikers available for selection but some people here still clamoring for a retired Ighalo. Kai, this is quite funny.

          Wake up Nigerians. It is time to take action.

          This is why am always happy when I see someone saying the truth like “Golden Child,” God bless you more brother. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

    Hate and jealousy will not get you anywhere. Only love based on facts will get you there. If the National coach identified the potency of Odion Ighalo as good enough to play for Nigeria in spite of his age, and where he plays his game, why are you having sleepless nights over such decision? Why Nigeria flag will not fly in this year World Cup arena? Because the NFF LISTENS to the fake sentiments ‘ lets fail with our own’.

    Such a wonderful season. Good luck!
