    This is the weekly report of our local league. Not even one single comment. How do you all expected the league to grow or produce national team players if we don’t support them?

    Last last our issues in Africa is not just leadership….we are bad followers as well

    • Well..good follower, may be because we believe they should be on break since Afcon concerns the whole Africa. As the top leagues in Europe used to be on break during Euro Cup. anyways sorry, we prefer super eagles updates now.
