    This man is in this team for personal records and not to help the team,no wonder he took the penalty ,I was wondering when Musa started taking penalties for Nigeria,and rohr is IN ,in all these nonsense

    • Ekong even left his duty post to Sprint to the sidelines to wear the armband on Musa……Doing honorary ceremony display when there is serious business at stake…… Depriving young players caps, young players that can be of help to SE in the future…… Because you want to honor a player on his way out of limelight hence struggling to remain relevant..,..SMH

    4mins, 3mins, 8mins just to pile up appearances. It’s in Super Eagles players are compensated for their previous contributions at the expense of national team’s progress. I said it before and will say it again, if Ramos is a Nigerian he will make the squad to 2022 WC based on previous performances.

    The most annoying part is some fans that reaons like morons will come up with stupid and annoying excuse of how he still “go world class training at PSG” therefore it’s enough criteria to board the plane to Qatar
