        BREAKING NEWS….., Michael Oliseh has made a U-turn from playing for France Senior team…Unfortunately for us, he chose to play for the Desert Warriors of Algeria….Our administrators are bunch of a mess. To think we can miss out again on Michael Oliseh can not be fathomed….but it is what it is…. Our football administrators have bungled the process again…..so unfortunate…..

    Thank God for His Blessings upon one of us. Victor Osimhen is the new king of African football in 2023. If only Nigeria has a good coach, we could win the AFCON this coming year. Uzohu should not even be recalled back to the team when we have Obasogie and the young guy playing very well in South Africa right now. God Bless Nigeria and God Bless Victor Osimhen.
