    All the best I wish you Destiny udogie!

    The super eagles need a reputable backup to Sanusi M. Zaidu at the LB position.

    As Collins has never really measured up at all.. Calvin bassey of Rangers is another excellent option as a viable back to Zaidu at the LB position…

    Rohr should pls invite Bassey in the fast approaching world cup qualifiers.

    Guys! I still don’t understand o! Why is it taking this long to get FIFA clearance officially for Lookman and Ejaria naa?

    There’s something I don’t understand….must everyone play for Nigeria? You guys dig up names almost every second, without even considering anything. Once a name is mentioned, he should be considered for super eagles. Yesterday, it was Onazi, some days ago, it was some ehiogu. Abeg take it easy na, it’s pretty ridiculous.
    Nigeria as a country will always have good players who are not playing for the country due to one circumstance or the other. This is the same with other good footballing countries around the world. And this is okay.
    Moreover, the current best Nigerian legs out there are those representing us in the super eagles. And I’m not talking about Nigerian descents in English teams or elsewhere. Just my opinion though.

    • A national team needs constant refreshing and moreover the Nigerian national team is nobody’s property or birth right….. Every football player anywhere in the world that is up to the standard has the right to stake a claim to the national team… period
