    Speedy recovery, my young man. Maduka Okoye, Seba Osigwe and Uzoho, if these 3 are fit and in form, I personally am ok with our goalkeeping department. Even if Rohr’s selection criterium is tumbo tumbo baskelebe, I am confident that any of them that is selected will do a nice job on the day. I want this for every department of the squad. The guys on the bench should be just as good as the starters. If we can achieve this, then anything is possible.

  • This is his first international debut, I hope this isn’t a conspiracy theory to keep him away from been capped by the SE team?

    All the same, get well and take your place in the SE
