    What is so damn special about Porto that our players are never good enough for their A team!

    Players from Mali and other smaller footballing nations have and are currently playing regularly and 90 minutes football for this team but mba(NO) when it’s a super eagles player na waoo!

    This same Porto have sat on the career of many promising Nigerian youth internationals and some of them are youth world cup winners for that matter.

    It’s high time our players looked the other way when next it’s Porto on the verge otherwise they and their future will be on the verge of tears!

      … Exactly. Some of us were feeling if Kelechi Iheanacho had signed after FIFA U-17 UAE 2013, his career would have been the better for it but that’s a huge bullet Iheanacho dodged… He will have been frustrated to oblivion if he had signed for FC Porto. Look at what they did to Chidera Eze and Musa Yahaya… Eze last I knew player for Enugu Rangers… and Musa Yahaya is still playing Porto B… Chidozie Awaziem is a great all-round clean defender… He held down our right full back well during last Nations Cup despite being a central defender by expertise… FC Porto is a Fraud… Young Nigerian players should start avoiding that Portuguese team like leprosy henceforth…
