    You guys need to see what Chukka is doing to Real Madrid , I can not believe his sis the same guy that played aimlessly last week . why are our players playing so well abroad but can not replicate same at national team. I think I will go with Iwobi and Segun Odegbami that we need to take eagles matches back to Warri because the tuff is similar to European field.

    Nigerian super eagles players like Samuel Chukwueze tend to play better for their professional clubs because they have better state-of the art facilities and soccer pitches abroad, and not the cassava farm pitch they are made to play in at the Moshood Abiola stadium at Abuja. I do not why the NFF cannot move Super Eagles matches to the Stadium at Uyo which is of much better quality at present. Must sentiments, corruption and dirty politics override reason in everything Nigerian?

    All the Nigerians in the premiership sitting comfortably in the relegation zone except for Brentford lol….2 of these 4(Nottingham, Everton, Southampton, and Leceister) will definitely go down….Sad sad I just hope not Iwobi.
