    U dey mind the poster and not iwobi first game too…..verify ur news bfor posting our dear poster

    Congratulations to Iwobi but as per Iheanacho, Coach Rohr should stop inviting him to the national team if he can’t leave that Leicester City to a club where he can play first team football.
    In two games in a row now, the guy has not even made d bench of Leicester City. Enough of this, Nigeria has strikers seriously knocking on the door of Super eagles and they should be considered rather than a player like Iheanacho who is satisfied not making d bench of his team.

  • When I read people’s negative comments here about Iwobi, Balogun n others, it just makes me ask, what manner of humans are these? It’s either these set of people are bereft of what makes a good footballer or they are envious, or evil in wishing others bad or doing it to satisfy their own agency player, which to me is very selfish.When a player is good n he is having difficult moments, you don’t critisize him publicly.
