    BUKAYO SAKA is the talk of the town in London after his performance against Eintracht Frankfurt. At this rate, how many players will Rohr have to look at? Bukayo looked really really good in that game! What a sleek, intelligent playmaker/winger, with a nice left foot. And he’s only 18! And what about Seyi Ojo? His performance against Feyenoord yesterday….. anyway, make I no too talk, before people begin to say maybe na my family member, or I’m his agent. Ojo has always impressed the heck out of me, right from his Liverpool days. And as for Bukayo Saka, our pipo say if a young boy washes his hands, he can eat with the elders. Coach Rohr, over to you sir!

    I must confess I don’t like Rohr approach and handling our national team due to his defensive mind and late substitution but I must say he has surprised me with his near perfect selection and I think he really is committed to Nigeria. His dedication can not be met by any Nigeria born coach.. he really means well for us .Although am one if those clamoring for his departure but I think now we should join hands with others to make sure Rohr succeed.. When you also consider how much he earns which I know will be small then relatively with what he has achieved so far I don’t think pep could have done better. Having said all these I want the coach to stop using two defensive players if he really want attacking football we are known for. The match against Brazil will say much about him and again the coach should learn to boost the confidence of his wards, Skill to Skill only few countries can match Nigeria presently so the coach should let the boys feel important and not inferior. Lastly did anybody watch Saka playing for Arsenal that guy is an improved version of Iwobi. Can Nigeria get him play for us .God bless Nigeria.Love you all with all sincerity irrespective of our differences.

    • Unfortunately,the Olympics is not on the FIFA calendar so most clubs only release players based on mutual understanding with the National teams

    Sheyi OJO has made it cleared emphatically to the world that he will fancy a chance to switch an allegiance and start playing for Nigeria… but since then nothing really has been done yet. I don’t think the technical department of NFF is really working so far. Why this guy’s papers hasn’t been completed along with the likes of Ademola LOOKMAN and eberechi EZE of Queens park rangers? is it when England has capped these aforementioned guys that we will now be lamenting? if you watch rangers vs feyenoord yesterday you will understand better.

    Come to think of it, Player like OJO is far better than that Overrated Simon Moses who couldn’t completed one successful dribble rather, came in along with that HEAVEY Esiti,and spoilt the work Aribo, iwobi, ETEBO and others has laboured for against Ukraine.

    someone should make Rohr and NFF understand that the super eagles need those three players mentioned…in order to make other players be on their toes while playing for Nigeria.

    we should forget about Tammy Abraham because getting him to play for us this time that he is performing very well under English legendary ex-player cum coach (lampard) is far far fetch considering their sentiment, Tammy cannot even mention it that he will like to switch if he does, his position in Chelsea automatically becomes a threat like what Paul clement of then Swansea coach did to him prior to world cup
