    He deserves it and Leicester fans love him. I pray and hope Rogers over his racism predisposition and stay playing him regularly

    He deserves it and Leicester fans love him. I pray and hope Rogers overcomes his racism predisposition and starts playing him regularly.

      How is he being racist, are you at the training ground to know what he does. Obviously he is thrash when he comes to the national team. He need to work on his off/On style of play.

        Kelechi Iheanacho is not thrash with the national team. I disagree with your statement above. Lets learn to appreciate, encourage and applaud our players and give constructive criticism.


  • Nathan Tella of Burnley in the English championship is also on fire. He scored a hat trick today and two goals in the game before. Coach Peseiro should think of inviting this attacking midfielder to fight for a sport in the Super Eagles. He is Anglo-Nigerian and has committed to playing for Nigeria if given a chance.Hios parents are also Nigerian and he is a fine talent.

      is Nathan an attacking midfielder or striker? I believe he along with Chuba Akpom are part of the players Peseiro is looking to invite to the National team in view of a rebuilding process.
