  • Do we really need him?

    • Yes we need him. He tried. I expect Omeruo or Balogun to play in his place in Abuja ladt week. He plaid the two friendlies in America. So, I was expecting another Centre Back to step in.

      God bless our coaching crew.

    Will Bonke ever impress? I think he is too mediocre for the super Eagles.
