    HOPE PESERO extend an INVITATION to ODION JUDE IGHALO for the SIERRA LEONE GAME? DUDE still gat some GAS in the TANK!!!

    • Ighalo is not on the Level of even Awoniyi as off now. and Osimhen is above Awoniyi, then we have Victor Boniface and Gift Orban, When Umar Sadiq regains full fitness he is also above Ighalo as of now. Guy @MONKEY POST it is high time you start appreciating the young talents we have and stop living in the past with your Ighalo talks. He has done his best!!!!

    Ighalo is a must for AFCON.One of the best attackers in the world cannot be ignored by Nigeria on grounds of age.

    • Ighalo is no longer one of the best strikers in the world what are you smoking?. @Ako Amadi. That title belongs to Osimhen from a Nigerian Persepctive. Moreover Awoniyi is doing for Notts forst what Ighalo did for Watford, and Ighalo at Watford is miles ahead of Ighalo today. You people should rest for goodness sake and allow Nigeria to grow and bed in our Current talents so they can build solid Chemistry for the future.

      Come Afcon next year Awoniyi will be even stronger than what he showed for Notts forest towards the end of the season and Sadiq Umar would be fit and i have no doubt firing Orban will have made a lucrative move and will def be showing Crazy Qualities as he is super talented then thier is still Boniface and a whole host of others. WE DO NOT NEED IGHALO!!! FOR AFCON WE NEED OUR CURRENT TALENTS TO BE BEDDING INTO THE SQUAD. THIS IGHALO MUSA STORIES YOU SABOTTAGIST KEEP PROCLAIMING IS REALLY DAMAGING NIGERIAS GROWTH AND SETTING A WRONG PRESCIDENCE AGAIN IF WE DID NOT HAVE THE TALENTS I JUST MENTIONED ABOVE YOUR CASE WILL HAVE MORE WEIGHT BUT AS OF NOW YOU PEOPLE JUST SOUND FUCKING UNGRATEFUL FOR THE CURRENT TALENTS GOD HAS CURRENTLY BLESSED NIGERIA FOOTBALL WITH.

      Ako Amadi is one of the clowns on this page I’m surprised you are responding to him. You people are not ashamed of yourself after all Ighalo has done to us at World Cup and Afcon. Complete sports is showcasing them due to the fact that their career will end soon and the fact that he is making Arab money. Arab league is for players ending their career and such players can not be fit like European league players. This is not a debate Ighalo is not needed the list of our strikers is overwhelming to be looking for retirees.

      • @Chima Gbam no mind dem Sabotagist all of dem na wettim dem be. And @Ako Amadi Ighalo was never one of the best strikers in the world and he cerntainly is not that now. Osimhen has reached a height Ighalo did not reach in Football and Osimhen is currently 2nd Best Striker in the World and could be best next season if all goes well in Spain or England Move. And You are here talking of Ighalo when Osimhen is miles aheafd what ighalo ever was. Awoniyi even is showcasing talents similar to Ighalo of Watford Days, and even He is below Osimhen on the pecking order. so @MONKEY POST and @Ako Amadi GETAT!!!!!!!!!

      You forgot the “TESTED, TRUSTED and EXPERIENCED LEGS” of Ahmed Musa. By the way, the only goal Musa has scored recently is in the “ozzaa room”. He has performed for his wife more times this year than played a competitive match.
