    Uzoho is far better than Akpeyi.

      We don’t want to see that man called Akpeyi near the super eagle anymore please! It’s very obvious that Uzoho is far better than him. What’s wrong with Rohr for choosing him over Uzoho anyway? Uzoho would have averted that Riyad Mahrez’s free kick that broke over 200 millions hearts away because is a very tall guy and beside he knows how to organize his defence.
