    How Okereke did not make Rohr’s list remains a mystery. That man is a fake coach. We have kicked him out of Nigeria which is great.

    I’m sure if you were coach you will have all your 23 players as a strikers. I wonder how some people reason. As at the time he made the list, Osigoal, Paul Awoniyi, Sodiq, Cyril, Stephen Odey were all doing well and are still doing well except for Paul that is injured. Which one of the names mentioned above should be dropped for okereke? Mind you, not all the names mentioned above that can even be there as just three of them are needed. So brother stop the hate speech a beg you. Happy Christmas in advance.

    Special Delivery, this your delivery is lost in transit.
    The delivery no get tracking number. No way to trace it.
    Okereke should continue to work hard. Hopefully, he will get his chance.

    Ebuehi did well today. I was impressed with his speed. Very quick recovery.
    That boy might be a good center back option, especially when we’re playing 3 at the back.

      @Pompei…you are now seeing what I suggested almost a year ago that Ebuehi can slot in a 3man CB also because then I knew Ekong was enjoying cover from Balogun and was a guy who really isn’t so solid, neither is he smart or quick in his play.

      @Dr.Drey your friend lampooned me for almost a year on that suggestion, I even called his attention that Diego Godin who is an astute centre back and very seasoned for Uruguay as well as clubs he played, then he was at Inter Milan, I don’t know if he is still there… I compared Tyrone Ebuehi’s frame to Diego Godin for him to see similarities than central defence is more intelligence than muscle…

      I am happy that you @Pompei has used the corner of an Eagle eye to also see the same thing I already saw and enthused long ago… a good defender should be comfortable with his right as well his left foot, that is how modern day players are forged these days… You cannot say I am weak in my left or right leg.

      The little margin for errors in the modern game does not allow those sort of olden days backman(excuses anymore… defenders have become as quick and nifty as attackers and midfielders these days)

      Thanks @Pompei….mind you Ebuehi is about 187cm tall, way above 6feet with wits and intelligence!

    @SD Special Delivery Jones to be candid with you I never expected such comment from you. You could have done better. Nice one @Elijah Samson I wonder if they want the whole 11 players on the pitch to be all strikers. Awoniyi, Denis, Ighalo, Sadiq, Osimehn is already on the list and e never do them. They are clamouring for more. Forgetting that it’s just 23 man list. What about the other departments? You see when we are saying some of the comments on Rohr are just pure hate speech and not critism, some frustrated failing sadist, will say why are we disturbing the whole forum. SMH…
