      • Hahaha!No be Rohr anything.
        Am sorry brother Ndidi for the injury. It would always come at anytime.
        Unfortunately for we Nigerian fans like myself, it just would deny me the opportunity of watching closely nd for the very first time, the midfield combination of Ndidi, Onyedika nd lwobi that am already dreaming of for a few months now.
        Get well soon, bro.

    Isn’t it time to invite Al Hassan? This is the first time I’ve ever seen a Nigerian institution discriminating against a Northern Muslim. Bring in Yusuf now!

    Ah beg leave Ndidi, he own na ‘too much trouble plenty yanga”. When we need am na the time he go get injury. See Algeria squad 6 midfielders for squad, Nigeria na only 4 and we already lose one. If another get injury, he go just be like for Ghana match with only two midfielders. How we for win match like dat?

      My bro, we don talk am tire. Why all the BATTALION of strikers and just 4 midfielders when we have a regular playing ALHASSAN YUSUF???

  • Ndidi has become prone to injuries these past years which is why we should have used these friendly games to try our other midfielders. But those who know football more than the fans will call up only 4 midfielders bcos they depend only on one style of football which is wing play.
    We keep depending on the same players instead of looking for others who can still give us what we need. I’m grateful for ONYEDIKA but it would have been better to invite yusuf as well since we are playing in two friendly games.
    Peseiro the coach should get his team together. The best players may not be in the biggest leagues or teams yet. But you can see their potential whenever they play.

    The withdrawal of the nvitation to Alhassan Yusuf should be investigated. Picni & Eguavoen are the main culprits.
    To avoid undue interference the current nff technical committee should be revamped and upgraded with people with better knowledge of latest soccer techniques
    Technicaless director, Eguzero should be replaced with Olofinjana or Enahoro.

    Current ommittee : Chairman, Alh. Ahmed Yusuf Fresh, with Chief Felix Anyansi-Agwu as Vice Chairman. Members are Etubom Paul Bassey, Alh. Aminu Balele Kurfi, Barr. Isaac Danladi, Alh. Dahiru Sadi, Mr Victor Ikpeba and Alh. Mutiu Adepoju. NFF Technical Director, Mr Austin Eguavoen is the Secretary.

    This overhyped guy again, anyway I’m not surprised, this’s why big clubs are not bidding for him. The eta Gra gra soccer is over he needs to be more technical and plays more with his brain. 

    • Hmm… just because we’ve seen Onyedika and Alhassan abi?
      Naija fans!
      It’s so unfortunate. I once said it on a log that Nigeria needed replacements for Etebo and Indidi. Not because Indidi isn’t good but because of this continuous injuries. As for Etebo, he has lost it since 2018/19. 
      Indidi still remains the best defensive midfielder we have until I see Onyedika’s performance for Nigeria. Get well soon and get another club soon, a better one.

    Proper planning prevent poor performance; is there any proper planning with the players called up? No!

    Poor planning pull poor performance; is there poor planning with the invited players? YES!

    I said this so that we will know what to expect and lower our expectations from the two matches coming up. How on Earth can you call up just 4midfilders for two matches of this magnitude when you could have simply invited at least 6midfielders?

    They went and terminated a rare gem like Alhassan Yusuf invitation to the team. I don’t know what they were thinking, are these people really serious at all? Now, match hasn’t started one of the 4midfielder is already out with injury what happens when the real action starts?

    This Amaju’s 8years of running our football affairs have been marred with all forms of corruptions. I heard that he has been begging not to be taken to prison for stealing over N30B monies meant for Nigeria football development. He doesn’t wants to go to jail so that he can continue with his FIFA appointment.

    When we have opportunity for capping Alhassan Yusuf we didn’t do it rather, they terminated his invitation perhaps, thinking that it was a mistake calling up in the first place. If only we want to be realistic and be truthful enough Yusuf even deserved the call much more than Raphael Onyedika this time considering their respective personal contributions into their teams.

    I will be expecting that Nigeria suffer the 3rd and 4th straight defeat to Algeria comes tomorrow and on Tuesday due to their inadequacies.

    How can you invite about 10 defenders and invite only 4 midfielders and invite about 10attackers? Is it not a stupidity? Even you had to replace some of the injured attackers you were still replacing them with another attackers even at the detriment of your scanty midfielders?
