  • @Jimmyball I hope you and Nigeria are taking note.

    Some players(the most Talented) with Dual Nationality will naturally have 2 options because of thier immense talent. While some will naturally fall back on the one that is available

    So Nigeria will say that players should come and beg them its simple I think Nigerians don’t just know how to deferential between talent.

    I mean when you court a player who is really talented you have to do so with humility and can’t expect them to come and beg you to play for them. It’s like a really beautiful girl you want to marry if you wait for her to come and ask you to marry her you will Wait until the day you see her carrying Belle for someone else. Lol… much like Saka Is lifting that Award for England and not Nigeria
