  • Good to hear this

  • Abdul handsy 2 years ago

    Good news! But haven’t heard any official replacement for omeruo yet as Simon has been replaced by Onuachu!

    I’m so happy to hear this but it is very clear that Osagwe won’t be participate in the qualifiers because he is new to the team and i don’t think it is a wise idea to throw him into the sea just like that.

    So, what is the point of inviting him to the Afcon qualifiers?

    Don’t blame me for this but the coaches of the Super Eagles. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

      @Omo9ja,Osigwe will get capped by Nigeria don’t worry.

      Remember you are allowed five changes under FIFA’s new law,so it depend’s on the result of our first game.If it ends in victory then we are bound for Cameroon 2021 Afcon so we can afford to experiment with Osigwe in the return fixture.

    Happy that Osigwe is ok!

    NFF, take better care of our players! Listen to Siasia describing the problems Nigerian players face. Siasia himself who has done so much for Nigeria, has been abandoned, and is now ON HIS OWN. Talking about the FIFA ban.
    NFF’s failure to take adequate care of our players, is the main reason the likes of Tammy Abraham and co have chosen to represent England, according to Siasia. England will do much more for Abraham than Nigeria. It is the sad truth.

      RUBBISH. Who told him that?
      Tammy Abraham and co chose England because it is where they were born, were brought up, learnt the basis of the game, have their coaches and roots there and have career benefits playing for England they will not have with Nigeria.

      • Good news
        Naija all the way

      • pompei 2 years ago

        “……and have career benefits playing for England they will not have with Nigeria”.

        You say Siasia is talking rubbish, but you made the same point he made.
        Siasia has been there and done that in football, as a player and as a manager. And he is much closer to the action than you are. So, his opinion in this matter is far more valuable than yours.
        The reality is that the foreign players that belong to us will find their way to us, and those that are not for us won’t, know matter how much we beg or cajole them.
        So, this video is not advocating for players already lost to other countries. It is a call for the NFF to improve the way they handle past and present players’ welfare.

    Nobody should be discussing abraham at all he is not good enough to play 9ja.

    • Greenturf 2 years ago

      He’s good for Nigeria and should have played regularly as our top striker had he choosed Nigeria.We haven’t a better striker than Abraham it’s just the bitter truth.

      Sorry mate.

  • Jones 2 years ago

  • Paul wantsa 2 years ago

    Uwuh! there is nothing you can’t see here, so Abraham here is on the same level with the likes of V. OSIMHEN, E. DENNIS, P. OLAYINKA and co. HABATICALLY!
