      Bro, What special thing has Mexico done apart from releasing their squad list which we have also done, even earlier than them.

      • @Emecco they always select thier best legs no matter what. They have a League that is functional and players from that league have a legitmate case for clamouring for a place in thier national team because thier clubs and league is competitive.. Past players and FA don’t interfre in the National team selection. and most importantly they undertsand that thier local league players cannot bench a player like Raul Jiminez unless he is a super talent and very very promising!. and they certainly won’t parade a finished player as their captain long after he has past his expiry date.. GERRIT!

    The Yusuf list should be discarded right off. We need a list from the the technical director, that is how it is done irrespective whose ox is gored. The NFF must begin to get it right by making sure everyone does plays his role. Soar on SE !!!

    Fu*k Raúl Jiménez, fu*k Herrera. We have Osimhen and Odion striking collabo to finish them off. Peseiro is good but Finidi must show his prowess in the games. I personally would like to see him in the dugout. God less Nigeria.

    A-38 man list released by Gerardo Martino, Technical Director of the Mexican National Team to defeat our own super eagles??? Fawoo! Eagles all the way.

  • The Mexican side even have Wolves striker, Jimenez, Sevilla forward, Jesus ‘Tecatito’ Corona; Peseiro and finito, we can’t afford to lose o!! Where are these lads, Amoo and Olayinka?

  • Paseiro must arrange another list with our best legs. He may include three players from NPL.
    I kept on saying it that Nigerian don’t care if the game is friendly or not. What Nigerian want to hear is Win.
    Nobody want to hear any excuse that he is not the one that prepared the list.
    The best thing for him is to review the list now and invite those that can do the work for him.
    Nigeria is not going to the world cup but the coach can usr the friendlies to win the heart of football loving Nigerian.

    God bless Nigeria
