Musa Vows: Super Eagles Will Make Nigerians Happy  Vs Sierra Leone

Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa insists the team will go all out for an outright win against Sierra Leone in Friday’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture, reports Completesports.com.

The encounter at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City will be played behind closed doors, as the organisers the Nigeria Football Federation implements Confederation of African Football’s guidelines against Covid-19 pandemic.

Musa states that the players will give their all in the encounter to make their fans proud.

“Playing in Benin is great. It’s the home town of my mum. I would have love to see my family members come around and watch this game, but there is nothing we can do about it,”Musa declared in an interview with the Super Eagles media team.

“It is all about the situation of things at the moment, the pandemic here in Nigeria and other parts of the world. There is nothing we can do, we have to play the game without the fans.

“We will do our best to qualify and make the fans happy.”

The Super Eagles top Group L with six points from two games.

  • _ Key Battles As Players Jostle For Places in the Starting 11 _

    With Ahmed Musa vowing to make fans happy, Nigeria’s Super Eagles take on the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone this month in Afcon qualifying matches expected to further entrench the narrative always touted with much gusto and great pride by fans of Gernot Rohr: Nigeria qualifying for major tournaments with games to spare.

    And, judging by the calibre of the opposition – Sierra Leone, a team currently languishing in a pitiful 120 position in the FiFa rankings – there is not expected to be any departure from this narrative (fingers crossed).

    As players start to pour into the camp for what should be a routine assignment of 6 points and flamboyant displays from Nigeria’s superstar “young” players, I take a look at the players battling for positions in these encounters.

    This exercise assumes Rohr will elect for his much-favoured 4-3-2-1 formation. My assumptions are also based on the premise that each player shows up and they are all fit to play on match days.

    Goalkeeper:

    This is going to be a two horse race between Daniel Akpeyi and Maduka Okoye. Akpeyi makes a return to the team having overcome concussion and Okoye – with at least 2 league games under his belt – will be hoping to continue in goal after impressive displays in October friendlies.

    My Verdict: Rohr may just bite the bullet and stick with Okoye. I doubt very much that a vast majority of fans will have any problem if this is what plays out – Akpeyi has never been a fan favourite.

    Fullbacks:

    You’ve got 6 fullbacks vying for 2 available slots (make that 4 slots over 2 games).

    I thought about this and felt that only Shehu Abdullahi stands a chance of not seeing any action across the 2 legs. Sanusi, Aina, Ebuehi, Awaziem and Collins all have near-equal chances of being selected. Yes Sanusi blew collective fans’ minds away with his beautifully implemented displays in October friendlies; I don’t think it is a foregone conclusion that the left back shirt is his to keep.

    My Verdict: I expect Sanusi to be allowed to continue (on this occasion) on the left with Aina moved to the right (where he is excelling for Fulham) in the first leg. Sanusi retains his (starting) position in the second leg (with Collins introduced later on) whilst any of Ebuehi or Awaziem starts on the right in the second leg.

    Centre-backs:

    Love him or hate him, Omeruo remains a likely starting 11 option if he is fit and playing regular club football. With him out of the picture this time, I see Rohr reverting to type. Make no mistake about it: the once decrepit and dilapidating Oyinbo wall is back stronger than ever.

    Yes Ekong has been unconvincing in Nigeria colours recently but something tells me that his move to Watford with give rise to a re-birth in Super Eagles colours.

    My Verdict: it is Ekong and Balogun to start all the way in both encounters. One of them might be substituted within each match for Akpoguma or Awaziem.

    Midfielders:

    This is a funny one because, if Rohr elects to utilise Semi Ajayi as his holding midfielder, who loses out, Aribo or Etebo? Iwobi on his part is sure to start as the attacking midfielder. Aribo has been courting the headlines lately with scintillating performances for Scottish giants Rangers whilst there are those like Pastor Taribo West who believe that Etebo’s rugged style is more suited for the African terrain.

    My Verdict: Ajayi starts as the DM, Etebo starts as the CM in the first match while Iwobi is the AM. Aribo may well start ahead of Etebo in the reverse fixture with the other 2 retaining their places.

    Wingers:

    I believe Samuel Chukwueze and Ahmed Musa will start, at least in the first match. Rohr will be hoping to finish off the Sierra Leoneans in the initial leg and for this to happen, he will be relying on his trusted Generals (whether they are clubless or not).

    The absence of Moses Simon and Samuel Kalu has provided Panadol for the selection headache Rohr would otherwise have had in this area.

    Verdict: I do think the first match will see Chukwueze and Musa. In the second leg, Chukwueze retains his place on the right but Rohr might elect to start any of Dennis or Ejuke on the left.

    Centre forward:

    If Onuachu starts the first match, even Rohr’s most ardent supporters will desert him in their droves! This is a straight battle between a resurging Iheanacho and the poster-boy of Nigerian football Victor Osihmen. For the centre forward role, each player brings something different. Iheanacho’s vision and suave against Oshimen’s directness and killer instinct.

    Verdict: I expect Osihmen to be restored to his position in both legs. Rohr – I think – will find a way to accommodate Iheanacho into the team but not to the detriment of Osihmen (at this point).

    In a way, Iheanacho will be fighting the same battle for club and country: for Leicester it is Jamie Vardy, for Nigeria, it is Victor Osihmen.

     
    • Aleks 1 week ago

      @Deo, good analysis as usual. I’ll almost agree with all your postulations except in the midfield. Not sure what’s in Coach Rohr’s mind, or how things will play out in the camp, but I’d rather go for a midfield trio of Etebo, Aribo and Iwobi. One thing you can’t take away from any West African team is their mobility, especially in the midfield and attack. That can give Ajayi (playing as midfielder) some problems resulting on unnecessary pressure on the defence. Also since we should rightly be going for a win, there is no need for unnecessary conservatism in the midfield. We can afford to have an attack minded but rugged, good tackling and mobile midfielder like Etebo slotting into the defensive midfield position.

       
    • pompei 1 week ago

      Beautiful writeup, Deo. I think this ranks among some of your best.
      Lol at the Onuachu comment. Indeed, if he starts, some people will be ready to use bomb to blow up this forum, hehehehe! However, life can be very funny. I remember not too long ago, Ighalo was also despised by fans. The same Ighalo that is everybody’s darling today. Who knows what the future holds? A fine performance in both games from Paulo, and the fans will start singing a completely different tune 🙂 🙂
      He has an uphill battle though, getting the nod ahead of his red-hot colleagues, Osimhen and Iheanacho.
      Your lineup looks very likely, going by Rohr’s conservative nature.
      My possible lineup is as follows, a 4-2-3-1 formation:
      Okoye
      Aina, Ekong, Balogun, Sanusi
      Etebo, Aribo
      Chuks, Iwobi, Ejuke
      Osimhen
      Would love to see Dennis given a chance to strut his stuff. Let’s see what he can do. He can come in as a sub, but let him have 20 to 30 mins to really show wetin dey.
      The squad is looking good. My only fear is the pitch! Hope it is in good condition!

       
    • Chairmanfemi 1 week ago

      Well said @Deo

      And I would also like to agree with Alek’s comment too.

      I think no matter what anybody says for now, Rohr can’t afford to Bench ARIBO for any reason in the Super Eagles. He’s like the brain box of the Midfield. Against Ukraine, we had a Midfield of ARIBO, Etebo and Iwobi I think and they performed very well. They can do it again! It’s also good to note clearly that Semi AJAYI is NOT a Defensive Midfielder but a Center Back. He only fills in the gap in case of scarcity. So if we are to group him, he’s among the Center Backs.

      In the absence of Ndidi and Onyeka, Shehu has been recalled. A Natural Defensive Midfielder you have there and can be regarded as a DMF for this upcoming games and not as a Right Back now. For the Right back slots, I also think Rohr won’t have a easy ride in selecting who starts between Aina and Ebuehi because both have been in Top form for their respective clubs. But the good news is, any of them that gets the nod is Trusted by the fans. All the best to the boys.

      #SoarSuperEagles

       
  • Nice write up @deo as always. My only hope is that Ejuke is giving enough room and time to show case himself. And I would find a way to start both Etebo and Aribo because Etebo is a box to box kind of guy and that will compliment Aribo too. Non the less very good observations. Kudos!

     
  • Kingston 1 week ago

    “Iheanacho’s vision and suave against Oshimen’s directness and killer instinct”, how true!
    why bench any?! let’s start the two unless Sierra Leone beg for mercy, then in our boundless love we will only start one.

     
  • Ahmed Musa. Super Eagles FC.
    Yet again we have invited Musa for important AFCON Qualifier. A club less and tired player to fill up numbers and is still the spoke man and captain of the Super Eagles.
    I don’t know if it’s for footballing reasons or marketing reasons that Musa is in that squad but for whatever reasons Musa should not make AFCON team list when we do qualify unless he finds himself another club.
    The worst part is no body is talking about it simply because he got an assist and won a Penalty in our last friendly match.

     
    • @Abu it is probably simply a case of easing Tribal sentiments otherwise I don’t see any other reason. From a merit point of view you are quite right his inclusion is not merited. Also It is not as if there is not enough experienced heads in the list to wear the captains Arm band I.e. Balogun, Ekong etc.. I think it is possibly a case of easing political and ethnic tension.

  • Thanks Aleks and Ugo. Shout out to Kingston too.

     
  • Abeg since football reasons have been relegated to the background. They should recall KANU from retirement he has more marketing value than Musa.

     
  • Dr. Drey 1 week ago

    Even that Kanu kept on getting invited to the SE when he was completely frozen out of arsenal and was training with them clichy and wilshere in the arsenal academy. So whoever is angry about the invitation of the SE captain who assisted our only goal and won a penalty for what should have been our 2nd/winning goal in the last match and is quitting his club because he wants to move back to Europe should pls add more gasoline to that anger so that it can become bigger and hotter. Anyone can argue with the records….Musa does not play 3 straight matches for the SE either as a starter or from the bench even as recent as last month and not impact directly on any.

      One thing a stupid and egotistical fool like you should get through your skull is that people have their opinions and not even your stupid long essays will change their opinions just like you have yours. Who the F r u really??? Like I’m really sure u r one lowlife in real life.

        Jeez!! Do you have to abuse him and rain curses on him? Just like you have your own opinion, Dr. Drey has his own opinions. I didn’t read where he cursed someone out now. Please, decency.

         
    • @Dr Drey you have now proven hoha that you are not a true Super Eagles Fan or Nigerian Football fan.. because for you to insult the Legendary Nwankwo Kanu show’s me that indeed you are either a teenager or just someone that like to make mouth without reason. it is quite sad that you insult a legend that brought us joy ever since he wore the Green white Green.. “Even that Kanu”, I mean guy are you for real?

       
      • Dr. Drey 1 week ago

        So the Ahmed Musa whom you have been insulting and denigrating for years now is not a legend. Your tribal bigotry and hypocrisy is legendry. Show me the insult there….”Even that Kanu…” an then…?? I must call him god-Kanu or Kanu (SWT)…??? You wan crase on top Ahmed Musa matter abi, dont worry, you go crase that your crase till 2022….LMAO. If you like rant from now till then….LMAO

         
      • Ayphillydegreat 1 week ago

        Musa has won AFCON which Kanu never won. Both Papillo and Air Nigeria are undisputed legends of Nigeria. When Mikel was frozen out of the Chelsea team in 2016 that he didn’t even kick a ball for Chelsea from August until he went to China in January 2017, he was still invited based on the fact that he’s the team captain and posted great performances against Tanzania and Zambia in Ndola. Musa’s experience is valuable for these generation of SuperEagles. In the matches he has featured he hasn’t done badly in my opinion. Until the day your superstar wingers win an AFCON and play regularly in the champions league Musa remains relevant for these team. 

         
        • @Ayphillydegreat pls don’t even go there.. Musa won Afcon yes quite alright but was not the main man in the 2013 Cup.. We all know that Nigeria was robbed in the 2000 Afcon any true die hard Super Eagles fan and Nigerian knows that, now yo will say that Cameroon won square and fair right for the sake of your Argument Abi??. We all saw Victor Ikpeba penalty crossed the line and we were the dominant team once JAy Jay Equalised. That was Nigeria’s Cup but Issa Hayatou denied us. Kanu was our Star striker in those days even if he didn’t score much in that tournay he was still instrumental in most games if not all, even after his heart surgery he was still 10 times the player Musa wishes to be. Lets not even go there.

          Lets not forget Kanu Nwankwo Celebrations when he and the real Dream team brough Joy to us in 1996 please you kids should not put Musa in the same breath and Kanu Nwankwo for the sake of peace in this Forum I take God Beg you.

           
        • Oh and @Ahiliythegreat Kanu Nwankwo is an Arsenal Legend please never you mention in the same breath

           
        • He is also a Uefa champions League Winner with Ajax Amsterdam.

           
  • Dr. Dre. You must have started watching Super Eagles only in 2020. Ahmed Musa does not play 3 consecutive matches for SE. Wow! really??
    Mind you in the last AFCON it was only the opening game against Burundi that Musa has not started. He has gone on to play all the matches including the semi finals against Algeria. And truth be told Musa is not the same player he was when he was playing in Russia. 3 Matches? are you talking about the two AFCON Qualifying matches against Lesotho and Benin? Which we won both convincingly without your Darling Ahmed Musa in the line up.
    Look I had followed Musa Since before he played for VVV Venlo. I can tell you more about him than you know. For now Musa does not have the pace and flair that he once had. Take it from me Sir.

     
    • Dr. Drey 1 week ago

      Pls go back and watch Nigeria vs Burundi again. The team was crap until Musa and Ighalo were introduced. Go back and watch Nigeria vs Madagascar again, our best chances came through Musa, infact he won a legitimate penalty (which could have become our equalizer) that the referee refused to award. His chested pass to Ighalo gave us our equalizer vs Cameroon and he began (or was involved in) the move that gave us our 1st goal vs South Africa. As recently as our last match, he conjured a delightful assist out of nothing and won a penalty that could have given us a 2nd and probably the winning goal when all the so-called youngsters with flair and what not were clueless….I am sure if it were to be Henry Onyekuru that delivered such a performance vs Tunisia…ahhhh…some people would have told us to start worshipping them on this forum. You claim you have followed Musa since he was playing in the local league yet you never saw these impactful moments in the team….as recent as just over a year ago…??? Its not surprising…hatred is worse to the eyesight than glaucoma. Pls clean the left side of your mouth….yea…that left side….thank you. You’ve just cleaned your lies.
      And pls when any of you see Ahmed Musa in a SE jersey on Friday or subsequently till he is respectfully bowed out of the team, you are free to go take it off him or as usual smash you TVs on the ground. QED

        YOU SAY U DON’T LIKE ROHR, MUSA but u still want to watch their useless game….

        There was a time i stop watching SE games bcos of our “AFRICAN QUARDIOLAs”…. Why not do same since the pple u hate are in charge and save yourselve from BP?

        My candid advise though….

        Dr Drey well done for ur resilience, mature, bold and unintimidating attitude.

        I love the way u serve them the pills….

        Any way; ROHR till 2022:::

         
  • Good analysis here Deo, But, I won’t start Ahmed Musa and Ajayi. Musa obviously has experience, but, it is time to allow younger player to build self-confidence. Ajayi and team mates are perhaps getting used to losing mentality in WBA in the EPL, this is impact his game negatively. SO, natural midfielders should be fielded. Etebo, Aribo, perhaps, “Nacho ma play in front of them if the coach is not confidence enough of other midfielders. Ejuke and Dennis may also start ahead of Chukwueze and Iwobi. One, that gives both Ejuke and Dennis confidence to play themselves into the team and improve competition, Iwobi and Chukwueze starting from the bench also make them to realise that they need to up their game, play for the team and be aware that their shirts are not permanent.

    Okoye, of course, in for the post, and oyinbo wall secured.

    I will introduce akpoguma somewhere in the second half either as defensive midfielder or deep defence. S/Leone is a match that we may try the experiments, so, we may be able to take real informed decision when situation turn soar in some other high level matches . UP SE

     
  • UBFE 1 week ago

    We’re all nigerians, we love all nigerian players both home & abroad.
    Bu the way most of us drop the name of player on this forum sometimes make us to unveil the hidden fact & bitter truth about the player.

    Every player is important so no need of faulting ROHR on why this player is picked instead of this one.
    It makes us think there’s some thing fishy behind, hence the reason for advocate.

    ROHR knows african football very well hence his invitation is base on how he want to play against his opponent.

    We employed him for that so no need suggesting or criticising his squard even b4 the blast of the whistle.

    The players he invited are all nigerians, then why asking him to drop this one for ur choice as if u are his PA.

    There wont be “PEACE” on this forum until we speak one language.
    Until we allow the coach invite whom he feels can fit into his style of play & can interpreat his game plan very well.

    Not trying to force a player on a coach as if that ur choice is more unique.

    My humble submission though.

     
    • JimmyBall 1 week ago

      @Oso… You will introduce Akpoguma as defensive midfielder? Chineke! Who did this to us? Attempting to always try playing players out of their natural position where they hold it down for their clubs? Guys make we the talk we some level of reality na!

  • OmoEsan 1 week ago

    @Deo, fantastic analysis you’ve got there. Even though many will not agree with having Musa and Ajayi in your starting line-up, I will still not be surprised if Rohr gives us a 1st eleven that’s a carbon copy of yours.

    Our clubless legend Musa showed class against Africa’s best teams during the friendlies and he remains a fear factor to any African opposition that confronts the Super Eagles. With Samuel Kalu and Moses Simon absent due to injuries, it’s almost certain that Musa will start, while Ejuke could come in later.

    Many also forget so quickly that Ajayi’s transfer to West Brom was facilitated by his impressive displays at the DM role while he played for Rotherham in the Championship, a position from where he scored a good number of goals, earned rave reviews and earned himself a move to West Brom and now the premiership. At West Brom and SE, he has played in the Central defence but if the need arises, he can still be deployed in the DM role for club and country, afterall he didn’t do badly against Algeria and Tunisia. With Etebo missing both friendlies, I suspect GR will still start with Ajayi while Etebo may start as DM in the second match.

    Whatever happens, may the best team win and may that best team be Super Eagles.

     
  • De Star 1 week ago

    @Deo , your analysis is simply the best,  though I will disagree with toying with Aribo who is one of the best quality players in SE not starting the match .

    As for repeated criticism of Musa , even though I am not Rohr’s fan but I must give it to Dr Drey’s position on Musa ; Dr Drey to me is not as bad as many feel these days , he at times have some valid and brilliant points , his greatest undoing to me is over rating and applauding anything Rohr does bad or good ( that to me can not passed integrity test of patriotism) , coupled with the fact that his habit  to always unsuccessfully bully others to accept his view with some unpleasant remarks also  , aside that he is also a great analysis, that I enjoy in the loop, and I believe, if there is anything that is constant in humans is CHNANGE ( not that of APC) so I am sure , constructive criticism can only make Dr Drey to change for better   , I will advise us too look at the message , he tried to pass but not the messenger .

    I will therefore, pitch my tent in support of Oga Rohr and by extension Dr Drey’s opinion.

    I believe Captain Musa should not be stampeded into exile from SE, take it or leave it Musa as captain of the team deserves some respect from the Nigerian football fans and respect of Rohr’s opinion on the choice of Musa . One thing you cannot take away from Musa who is one of the the most criticized players in SE is , his unflinching dedication and strong commitment to national duty and never for once loose his head even when he was the rave of the moment, besides , when chips were  down in any major tournaments particularly W/C Musa’s audacious television’s goals were always there to rescue Nigerian , in the last w/c where no one gave him chance , his 2 goals were not only goals SE recorded in the tournament but were also brilliantly scored in a manner it competed for the goals of the tournament as such sublime goals can only be manufactured by the likes of Ronaldo & Messi &co . Again when Musa is on the pitch , he adds seriousness and sense of business-like and urgency in the team. 

    For comparing with King Kanu , yes @ Dr Drey is emphatically right , even when Kanu was at his lowest ebb , without strength to play full match , he was always the first to be called to camp as team captain  , this is aside the fact that throughout Kanu Afcon tournament appearance , he never for once score 1 goal for SE throughout his Afcon career as attacking player (yet he never missed any Afcon tournament until he hangs his boot ). Capt King Kanu was not the only to be a beneficiary of this gesture, the likes of late Keshi we’re equal given similar respect in the past as captain even to the 94  World Cup that remains the reference points in the Nigerian football history ( the Afcon cup was won and given to Keshi to lift the cup by standing in captain of the team Eguafon as a mark of respect cum honour to the skipper of the team who are unofficial assistants coach in any team , I need not remind you that Keshi as SE Captain to the WC was just in the team as a coverup to Chidi Nwanu as Keshi remained on the bench without kicking a ball in that tournament. 

    Please let us cultivate idea of appreciating our patriotic and dedicated players in SE rather than running them down with our negative remarks before they fail on the football pitch ( Onunachu had failed severally, can anyone says of same with Musa ?) , same treatment was visited on Igalo , written off before the Afcon tournament ( yet he emerged the highest goal scorer of the tournament) , until Igalo was stamped out of SE , the same Igalo was a super revelation in the great team of ManU .
    One love ❤️ 

     
    • Thanks De star. One point of correction though: Keshi played against Greece in USA ’94 (even earning a yellow card for his troubles).

      One love bro.

      Very eloquent delivery as usual @De Star ⭐️ 

      Once a progressive, always a progressive!!!!

      Captain Musa deserves some accolade, he is air Nigeria.

       
  • Musa indeed has a wealth of experience playing for the Super Eagles, but I don’t see him starting on Friday.
    I think with both etebo, aribo present and moses, kalu absent iwobi will be pushed to the left wing while chukwueze will start on the right.
    Sierra leonians are strong physically so that knocks Aina and tyrone out of RB and ushers Awaziem (boavista stand in captain) in. Shehu has been absent from the team for a long time plus I can’t remember him ever playing in the defensive mid field position, so he is out and Ajayi is in. Ekong (asst captain) is also in along side ageless balogun and speedster Zaidu. At opposite ends of the field we have okoye in goal and Osimhen leading the attack. Oh yeah!
    My first 11 prediction:

    OKOYE

    AWAZIEM. EKONG. BALOGUN. SANUSI

    AJAYI.

    ETEBO. ARIBO.

    CHUKWUEZE. IWOBI.

    OSIMHEN

     
  • Chairmanfemi 1 week ago

    My preferred line up:

    OKOYE

    AINA. EKONG BALOGUN. SANUSI

    ARIBO. ETEBO

    CHUKWUEZE. IWOBI. MUSA

    V.OSHIMEN

    Subs: Musa for Ejuke
    Iwobi for Ihenacho
    Chukwueze for Dennis
    Ekong for Akpoguma (probably)

     
    • Greenturf 1 week ago

      @Chairmanfemi,Good line up,unfortunately Ajayi must start against Sierra Leone.He is a regular in the premiership and the coaching crew holds him in high esteem.

      Ajayi is an athlete in a tip-top condition,should start either in the midfield or defensive midfield on friday.

    Dr Drey. Nice to see that our other members on the divide appreciate your stance on Musa and inadvertently gave in to your stand that Musa is absolutely relevant in today’s SuperEagles. @Sportsfan, Kingston, OmoEsan, Sean, UBFE( Mr no nonsense) Pompei and other Progressive Pro Rohr members I appreciate all of Una. All we have to continue to do is to be proactive and dish out the facts on the state of our darling SuperEagles. I’m glad that those who condemn the coach of playing kick and follow football are the ones coming back again to respect and appreciate the decision of the gaffer to retain his captain in the team. Thank Goodness Rohr is not a local coach who will bow to fans pressure by neglecting one of his most influential player. A local coach would’ve forgotten about Onuachu by now, but he continues to be patient to see how he can adapt to his system. I’m pretty sure they’re now aware that we are on the verge of securing qualification to another major tournament with games to spare hence the need to have no choice than to accept the gaffers decision. Let’s see how the boys will rise to the occasion on Friday and secure the maximum 3 points enroute another major tournament with games to spare. And to those standing on the fence to see the outcome of things I greet una too. Keep on the analysis we will all cross the bridge and be here to analyze the outcome eventually. Good luck to the SuperEagles #FLY LIKE AN EAGLE INTO THE FUTURE. SuperEagles takes flight.

      Hahahahaha…Well said @AYphilly…..Kudos to you and to every other well meaning Nigerian who has stood upright against the machinations of the saboteurs. Let them continue to cook up lies, allegations and false alarms where there is none. We can NEVER be shaken….person wey dey shake shortingo na himsef e dey shake. They think we dont know their ultimate aim which is to take us back to the land of egypt. Facts dont lie my brother….anybody that chooses to argue should continue arguing with the facts and realities on ground. All I know is that against all odds, we are getting better and better by the day and shall surely get there soon by God’s grace. Let them continue to pray for the failure of the team because of their hatred from Rohr and his white skin, we will continue to pray for the success of the team because of our love for the nation….permit be to borrow your custom salutation in saying Good luck to the SuperEagles #FLY LIKE AN EAGLE INTO THE FUTURE. We remain Unshakable…!!!

        …..when Rohr does A regressives will say he should have done B…when he does B they will say he should have done A. I am sure when we qualify for AFCON again with games to spare, Rohr will come under another round of heavy baseless criticism from these regressive for always qualifying too early for competitions…..LMAO
