    Big game player Victor Moses… The one we really need back in Super Eagles not Ighalo. We would be patient and hope you change your stance and return back to play atleast one more nations cup and world cup for Nigeria.

    • Femi 1 year ago

      We sure need Moses but I think mikel is much more needed as ndidi deputy.

    • Dr. Drey 1 year ago

      Hehehehehe…so he will not “…block the space for the development of the younger ones…”..LMAO….hypocrisy in flesh and blood…LMAO. I am beginning to love the humility in your tone….LMAO.

      I am glad Rohr has given anyone who wants to return a caveat…its up to them to run with his conditions. Let them all come to camp and fight for shirts. If the young ones cant force them out, then they arent just ripe yet….make dem go cook demsef better….its as simple as that. Lolz

      • JimmyBall 1 year ago

        Since you too like Ighalo matter… Victor Moses is younger and has a properly documented age not Ighalo who is atleast 36/37 but claiming 31yrs. Besides Russia league is competitive and Victor Moses will be playing Champions League football next season… You wey want Ighalo to come back @Dr.Drey… is he coming to bench Osimhen, Moffi, Sadiq or sit on the bench for them? Meanwhile Victor Moses is more mature and experienced in footballing terms than any winger we have currently… abi no be true?

        • Dr. Drey 1 year ago

          Maybe I should remind you that Victor Moses was born and grew in Nigeria too and left Nigeria under controversial circumstances and falsified migration status. His elder brother is even once played in our U17s in the 2000s. So that your “proper documentation” theory might just be as misguided. Maybe I also need to remind you Ighalo was until this January a Man Utd player who also still proved himself (in England and in Europe) everytime he was given ample opportunity to do so. “Ordinary” Ighalo even reached 5 goals faster than almighty Cavani despite the latter being given more playtime and preferential treatment by the entire Man U fraternity. And he currently has 5 goals in 10 games (despite being out injured) for his current club, all showing he not dead yet. Its not about Dr.Drey liking Ighalo matter….its about lettings the doves perch and letting the pigeons perch too. The sky is wide enough for all birds to fly without colliding.

          According to you 31yr old Victor Moses is more mature and experienced in footballing terms than any winger we have currently and thus has the liberty to come in and bench Chukwueze, Kalu, Simon, Iwobi, Onyekuru, Ejuke, Olayinka, Dennis and “block the space for their development”, BUT the 31yr old (or 36 as you may wish to call him) 5th alltime topscorer for Nigeria, Top scorer of the last AFCON and its qualification series and Ex-Man Utd striker is not mature and experienced enough and will block the development of the strikers in the team. LMAO. Clap for yourself. Clean the sides of your mouth…yea…the sides…that’s where the hypocrisy in your statements have gathered.

          What are you afraid off…? Why does Ighalo’s name send shivers down your spines….? Let all of them old and young be called to camp (if the old ones wish to rescind their decision) and Let the young ones prove that they are now mature and experienced enough by benching or denying them a place on the team. That is ho life works. If you say I am old and useless, come and best me on the wrestling mat and then I’ll retire to my hut. Otherwise make peace with the fact that I am still going to be around for a little while longer. Dont bother your head whether Ighalo is coming to bench or be benched…let him be the one to worry about that and what it will portend for his image and his self -respect.

          • JimmyBall 1 year ago

            Foregt the circumstances he left for london… he was very young and started in something like U-13/U-14 at Crystal Palace… so his truly documented age would not be too different from what it is now… that one is more reliable than a kid who grew in Nigeria like Ighalo. Know that I have nothing against Ighalo… just that unlike Victor Moses, who truly is a rare kind of player… we now have strikers who way an improvement of an Ighalo… so who want Ighalo to come bench? Moses can still comfortably come to Super Eagles and bench the folks we have both on the left, and on the right wings… and you know this! So… Goodnight my friend!

          • Dr. Drey 1 year ago

            Saying I should forget the circumstances is like saying I should forget he was born and raised in Nigeria. If his migration status could be falsified why wouldn’t his age. Even his name was falsified. So what are you driving at. At least we also saw Ighalo’s picture as a boy (i mean a really young boy of between 15 and 17 years of age) wearing Man U’s 2005 jersey and then he played in the u20s 4 years later. So….?? even if he isnt exactly 31, what proof do you have he is 36 or above and that Victor is EXACTLY 31…? If you say we have strikers who are improvement of Ighalo, so our wingers are not…? Go and juxtapose their seasons stats with that of the “mature and experienced” Moses and lets see how really mature and experienced he is.

            Its is not my call to name whom Ighalo and moses will bench or not bench in the SE, but the last time I checked Onuachu went into AFCON 2019 with Rohr’s trust as our 1st choice striker and Ighalo came off the bench as 2nd choice to become tournament top scorer. It happened right b4 everyone’s eyes and even you cant fault it, despite all the excuses of there was no finidi to feed him crosses. Onuachu hasnt changed his style of play since then, neither as ighalo changed his, neither has he also showed any signs of slowing down. He moved to Man U and shoved humble pies down every ones’ throat including Keane and Neville. He has moved to Saudi to enjoy oil money but still has 50% goal ratio. So who says that scenario cannot repeat itself…? And if Ighalo can bench Onuachu why wouldnt he bench Simy. If for example we are playing Cameroon in June and Paul still cannot hold up play or bully the hard as nails Cameroonian defenders to get to the end of crosses (just like what happened vs Algeria friendly) and he is yanked off in the 65th min and the old hag who knows how to perfectly and excellently interpret Rohr’s tactics replaces him (like vs Burundi) and scores another wonderful match winner what will you do…?? Kill him…??? Or refuse to celebrate the goal because it was scored by an old hag who is not mature and experienced enough yet he is the 5th top scorer of all time for the SE averaging 50% ratio during his tenure…???

            But as I said earlier, it is not my call to make on who and who will bench or be benched, it is the call of the coaches to make when all of them have battled hard on a level playing field in camp. It will now be left for the younger ones to prove if they have or haven’t come of age yet. And if they still cannot prove to the old guys that bros….no vex, but your time is up….then they aren’t just ready yet and that’s a fact. They should go and ty again. That is how it has been in the SE from time immemorial. If you say you are not yet old, wait till the time one small kid will breeze past you in camp. Nobody go tell you say e do. I hope you know it was in camp under Salisu that Efe Ambrose conceded “e don do me” after struggling to match Balogun, Ekong, Omeruo, Gbenga Arokoyo and other younger defenders preparatory to a friendly game. Had Mikel shone like a million stars at AFCON 2019 and now that he is still active at stoke, we would have still be prostrating for him to come and be with the national team like we used to. But right there in camp, small boys like Ndidi and Karo put him right on the bench and towed him out of the SE for good.

            So let these young ones be the ones to force the older guys to ask themselves “why did I even rescind my earlier decision”. Nobody is gonna block nobody’s development….except for the one who isnt worthy of the mark in the first place.

      A proper Eagle with strong wings and talons. Definitely one of the best that ever put on that famous green white green.

  • Collins id 1 year ago

    There is no justification for dropping ejuke for the likes of iwuala, if not for nff wahala, kelechi nwakali got his visa expired while camping with our under 23, which led to his clubs sacking him, nff do not remember this sacrifice from a passionate eagle, to clamour for his invitation now that he is doing well with club, obinna nwobodo got injured in the semis of the 2015 under 20 afcon in senegal, that injury lasted up to about 2years it took the grace of God for him to travel to europe for operation and gracefully came back to playing again, he was the best player of that tournament that mostly futured the 2013 under 17 world champions, nff see that he is playing regularly for gotzepe in turkish league, infact he is the most regular nigerian player in turkey with outstanding performances, why is nff not clamouring for this passionate eagle, all of a sudden iwuela, akinola is a Nigerian defensive midfielder currently playing for arsenal under 23, and regularly trains with first team, a capable replacement for ndidi even at now, he is a solid dm and can become one of the best in the future, if he brakes into arsenal first team before we cap him, believe me we will lose him to england, sometimes I wonder what agali is doing with his scouting Team, na to go bear parlor and scout from DStv, Nff should employ me to scout for the eagles. Wetin concern iwuela ezenwa for eagles by now?

  • Collins id 1 year ago

    Akinola haven’t played for any national team, he is good enough replacement for ndidi can also pair ndidi in a defensive formation, please rohr should integrate him now, no excuses and there no other better option than akinola in that Dm among nigerian footballers I know for sure. Rohr himself will enjoy this guy

    • This young man looks good. I like the way he still holds on to the ball even surrounded by opponents. Any club who takes a chance on him and signs him on to play for a top team in a top league may find themselves unearthing a gem. Good defensive abilities and a decent passer of the ball, good pace and good use of his upper body to shield the ball from opponents. Lets keep an eye on this one.

  • Mikel should come back and serve as Ndidi’s deputy! Is that a Joke or what?!!
    victor Moses may still be playing active football and could still cut it with the national team but for how many years and who will decide which position and games he will play, him or the coach? Nah
    I rather bring in knew players who are humbly and hungry. They are out there. All the coach needs to do is look.

  • Nigerian players doing great exploits in their respective clubs in Europe.

    In very long while, we have never had it this good for our lads plying their trade abroad. From England (Wilf Ndidi & Kelechi Iheanacho) to Simi Nwankwo, Italy; Samuel Chukwueze, Spain, the duo of Moses Simon and Terem Moffi in France, Paul Onuachu, Belgium, etc.

    These go show the footballing potentials that we’ve got, a good omen for the country and a warning signal to the rest of the world.

    Thumbs up to all those who won trophies and to those who qualified for European competitions.

    Enyimba of Aba, una no try at all

    A last minute screamer from Victor Moses saves Spartak Moscow from the jaws of defeat, and ushers them into the Champions League! That shot can part the waters of the Red Sea…..

  • pompei 1 year ago

    Ejuke continues to submit performances that call to question his absence in the SE invitee list of late. As much as I trust and support Rohr, this is the one area where we are not on the same page. We are not even in the same library. I dare say we are not in the same city.
    Why, oh why, is Ejuke not in the squad? Instead of inviting 31 players, make it 32 and add Ejuke to that list. Let him come and sweat it out with the other wingers for a position in the main squad.
    Especially now that the Lookman thing is looking more and more like a pipe dream with each passing day, if we are fortunate to have someone like EBEANO EJUKE, we should be putting him to good use!
    Rohr, how far?
