  • With the absence of ekong , a player like balogun should have been invited especially when fit.. this is a game where experience is needed and if ekong is not available why not balogun.. our defense looks light but I pray we do well in our games

    Samuel chukweze did not make team as he was still classified as “injured” and was invited by the Nigerian coach. What an irony, where there are many fit players who should have been called. It seems as the call ups to the national team is a right to some players, if not l don’t see reason why an injured player should be call to the national team. The same thing happened at the AFCON.
