  • This people again with their pictures posing,after u will hear that Benin republic harmed them 5 nil,shameless people,may God remove us from imama’s hand

  • These are the very same players that were beaten 4-1 by Togo last week. I’m a gamble that backfired spectacularly, he brought under 23 plays to a senior men level game.

    Now he is repeating the mistake against the very same opponents. Forget the fact that our league is 2 months late and we haven’t had a full local league schedule for two years (Togo’s League is in the same state), not taking our most experienced players to a competition is crazy and shows that he has not learnt from his folly.

    For example Ifeanyi Anaemena has more experience than the entire back line put together and is arguably the best defender in the NPFL but is left out.
    Kano Pillars Rabiu is one of the most experienced midfielders in the country and nobody from Rangers?
