    It’s reported Dayo Ojo was dropped without even kicking a ball in camp because he was not fit owing to being out of action in the last one month in the NPFL… now you begin to see why it was said some players should never have been listed in the first place… Which of the coaches Eguaveon/Aigbogun contacted would have suggested such a guy’s name now… Abracadabra things no the far from us Nigerians!!!

      @ Jimmy ball. You never see anything. Honestly I am just waiting for when Rohrs contract end, so he can let someone else come in. But by then, I would be taking a very long leave away from Nigeria football to save myself any heart ache. Imagine Aigbogun,Salisu, Amakakpabo etc giving the charge to invite players for Chan eagles. A system being run by people walking on their brains n planning with their legs n “blockus”. Absolute nonsense.

        Eguavon explained that he has not seen all the games in the NPFL, so he contacted some coaches to give him names,mind u he is not the coach of soee eagles,this is a team that has a coach and an assistant who are no where to be found, I can make excuses for him for making a few mistakes on the invited players due to d fact that he is not a coach.we have rohr as a coach who doesn’t believe in the team and yobo who has no license to coach,yet he is still a coach of nigeria.i am praying for Eguavon to succeed and proof to rohr that we have talents in Nigeria and YES if rohr leaves ,a Nigerian coach should take over ,blend the team with good players only .either foreign based or home based period.i am tired of rohr being the coach of Nigeria for six years now and making endless excuses always afraid of every team in Africa ,has no confidence in his players including those he begged to come and play for us,I’m also tied of reading on the pages of newspaper how several average players like adarabioyo ,eze and co are telling us they don’t want to play for us yet the coach and pinnick continue to beg them.these are players that England consider not to be good enough but here ,they are begged.home based super eagles will give a very good account of themselves,I trust coach Eguavon,I heard that he dropped iwuala and anaemena,it shows he is not afraid to drop any player no matter how big or important,kudos to him
