  • Wisdom.

    The guy quickly retire before facing Super Eagles.

    He didn’t want to add loss at home and away to Nigeria to his football carrier.

    Does he really have much to fear from a team that couldn’t beat this current Ghana?
    When I go back to watch S/Leone at the last Afcon, especially the way they drew 0-0 and 2-2 with Algeria and Ivory Coast respectively, 2 of the strongest teams in the continent at the moment, I think it is perhaps Nigeria that should be happy that Kei has retired!

    • Super Eagles will play the qualifiers with all seriousness to win back the hearts of football loving Nigerians
