    We miss this guy in the last afcon o..he would have used his experience to score all those goals that osimhen missed. And even help us beat ivory coast in the final…

    We must chase old players out of the national team….. we must forcefully retire old players and give free visas to play to young players……we have too many young players to be inviting old players…yuen yuen yuen yuen.

    Come major tournament, so-called young players melted away in the heat of the tournament.

    Tournament MVP – 30yr old……Top scorer – 34yr old….. Best GK – 32 year old

    I will say it again, “a proven player will forever remain a proven player” even if he now plays on the sands of Elegushi beach.

    34year old Legend still hitting 20 goals per season playing for an inferior clubside.

  • Yehn Yehn Yehn yes you are right Yehn Yehn Yehn, If you and @MONKEY POST were not busy Licking Musa Yansh you woild have realised that Musa is not the experience we need. We needed Proven Experienced players that were starting 11 players in their hay days i.e. Victor Moses and Odion Ighalo yes when Awoniyi and Umar Sadiq got injured Odion would have made sense and if the coach understands Nigerian Football then he would have realized this, but he chose Onuachu however he took Musa instead of Tella now that is were the real problem lies. Take slow sluggish Onuachu instead of Ighalo and take Out of form Musa instead of Inform Tella who is still eligible playing for England and is in fine form and as he came out to say he was disappointed missing out and loves to play international ball meaning If England Calls him now Nigeria go hear word. And your problem is Ighalo Lol!!!

    ANd you people can keep making weird comments the fact remains the coach makes bad judgements based on majority of the brick head fans clamours Musa being in AFCON makes no sense and Ighalo in hindsight would have however if you brick heads didn’t campaign for Musa or support his inclusion you any have seen Ighalo or rather noticed he was missing.

    And AT MONKEY POST please have some respect for Osimhen and don’t compare him with Ighalo has Ighalo carried any of his clubs to a League title Osimhen did it And Boniface is currently doing it. that is the difference in caliber of players sentiment is nor good ooooo @MONKEY POST

      Tella could not make Peserio’s 23 man squad…..he could not make Peserio’s 25 man squad…..even when CAF allowed 2 more players to make the squad a 27 man sqaud, Peserio still didn’t fancy bring on Tella into the team…but to a dumb idiot like you, it is Musa that didn’t allow Tella to make AFCON squad. I am pretty sure if CAF had allowed a 30man squad and Peserio still didn’t select Tella, it would also have been Musa’s fault….LMAOOo.

      Thank God your x-factor chukwueze made the squad…and we saw the shit he gave us at the AFCON….even a dead Musa wouldnt play the kind of shit your x-factor kinsman gave to us in Cotedivoire. The worst of Musa in his over a decade long international career was way better.

      Its a fact that Musa was more useful to the SE at this last AFCON than your chuwkeze.

      wWe must forcefully retire old players and give free visas to play to young players………yen yen yen yen.

      2024 Tournament MVP – 30yr old . . . Top scorer – 34yr old . . . . Best GK – 32 year old

      2022 Tournament MVP – 30yr old….Top Scorer – 32yr old….Best GK – 30yr old.

      But to some hungry rabbied dogs posturing as learned folks, “…We must chase old players out of the national team…”

      Nigeria is the only country that has youngsters playing football…..LMAOoo
