    One guy on CSN Page that said EKONG is overhyped last week, I hope he watched this game. He had a beast performance tonight. Abeg that SE Captain armband should remain with him except Musa is subbed in late in any game we play. The way he was barking at the Defence and his teammates today was enough to give them sense to win the game..lol

    Lol, don’t mind them. They said he is not good enough. He is too weak, too slow, too this, too that. In fact, he is also too yellow. He should be darker skinned to play for us, lol! Abeg, I hope that person watched today’s game. See as Ekong marshaled Udinese’s defence against CR7 and co successfully.
    Left to me, the captain band should remain with him, at least for now. No need to rock the boat that is sailing steadily.
