    The match was great to watch. Eyimba should do better if they want to go far in Confederations Cup this season. That Iwuala na baller a beg. He is Super Eagles material.

  • The people elephant need to double up their game,it was a nice come back,although it wasn’t a win,the captian Austine Oladapo really played well.i wish them only the best.
