    Did anyone notice what happened yesterday in England’s match against Bulgaria? Even though they trashed Bulgaria silly by 6 goals to nill, mr English men ( Abraham and Tomori) were strapped to the bench like pigeons in a cage. Lol! They couldn’t even play a part in the match despite the outstanding result and performance of the English team. I can’t stop laughing, this is just the beginning. Them never grind beans sef but akara don Dy smell…..lol.. foolishness is really a disease…

    • I wanted to post this…I am sure both of them will letter regret their action,unless Kane,sterling and rashor got injured and Tammy is still scoring like we’ll he might get a few caps as for tomori no way 

    • Hahaha [email protected] Oakfield u are even talking about playing while those English pigeons called Tammy and tomato his fellow captured rat didn’t even tried to warm their bodies,but tomato can still run for his life and enter Canada because that’s the only place he can run to,he dnt and will never have game time with super eagles,we are in form more than England,they can’t play draw match with Brasil,amd we saw Ukraine beat Portugal yesterday with cR7 on the pitch,am sure Abraham’s song now will be (Lee ihe m mere onwem) hahaha

    @Oakfield,I like that adage,dem never grind beans akara don dey smell.You see arrogance is the order of the day for anything English even though they are not as astute as they claim.Same attribute some of this black guys have imbibed to their destruction if caution is not taken.Tammy and Tomori feels they are already world class too good for a black nation.
    I believe in continuous learning in life.But has Tammy and Tomori learnt I beg to say noo.the list of black Eglish players who made the same mistakes is endless and yet they r still that foolish.Exept there is Horicane Chatrina in English Football will Tammy and Tomori make a name therein no miracle can happen.As Oakfield rightly noted one will think that since the team was leading 6 nil fringe players should at least stretch their legs no way.Another lesson for Tammy and Tomori is Mount whom is not better than him but plays ahead of him in the team albeit playing in different possitions.The point is Mount is pure English and will always be aided.While Tammy has plung himself in international wilderness,Tomori still has a chance to redeem himself.
    On ommission of Osimhen above,I never take matters like this serious for obvious reasons,racism.Of all of them above Osimhen is the most in form.But am glad at the end every one will look back and say the b3st choice was left out.

    • Oakfield 2 years ago

      @asoko, don’t mind them. Them go hear am big time. This is just the beginning. It’ll be a lifetime regret for them all. I’m still laughing in Chinese.heheehekikik lol

  • English national team cannot play more than 3 black players in a match.

  • Southgate knows if he brings in Abraham or tomori that will increase the rate of racist abuse from the Bulgarian fans.

  • Chima E Samuels 2 years ago

    Osimeh Chukweze omitted and Rodrygo plus Vinicius who has lower goal return and performance included this alone should tell that football is not for blacks. I can’t stop laughing let my naija boys make their money and come back home to invest that’s if we have a better government by the time they want to retire!

  • Chairmanfemi 2 years ago

    There omission is not surprising. Especially that of Oshimen who is presently way better than most of there nominees. Reasons cuz ITALY as we all know is among the HQ of Racism Worldwide so for them to include an African player will be a Miracle. Secondly, This also Boils down to my write up last week about us hyping our Youngsters too to get there deserved recognitions at World level. Imagine the names I cited as examples were the ones that even made the cut. Players like Rodrygo, Viniscus JR, Ansu Fati etc that has in no way done anything better or even close to Oshimen this season were picked?? On what basis. Rodrygo and Viniscus JR has been on Injury after like 1-2 games for Madrid yet they make the cut just cuz of the Hype they get from there Media. I believe when we also Hype and Sing our players Praises coupled with there consistent HARD-WORK, they will surely be ruling the World and Awards soon.

    • Thanks my chairman. This should be a reminder to media outfits like CSN. They should focus their energy on promoting original people like Chukwueze, Osimheeeen, Aaaariiiibo and others, rather than flooding this website with news about wanna be English players who are not as good as our own players. Tammy is good but not as good as our own Osimhen. Tomori is even far from it. We can only manage the guy if he is humble enough but presently, our defenders are better than him. It is just time and chance that made him play in a bigger club than them. Tomori needs Nigeria much more than Nigeria needs him. For all I care Canada can have him if he can still summon courage and ditch England.
