    Coach, just include 3attacking midfielders from NPL into SE, it’s that simple. We lack AMFs, all other parts in the team are well covered. Drop Musa and a few dead legs and include 3AMFs.

      Apparently,It’s a no brainier to drop Musa for Haliru Sariki.
      That boy is something special he reminds me of prime Tijani Babangida.

  • instead of releasing the list for Sierra Leone he is wasting time watching a dead league looking for players where there is non. My man just put Gift Orban as Attcking midfield make we hear word Jare!… that league has nothing to offer Super Eagles for now players in that league are bang average and age cheats Period!!!

    • Will you find a free kick specialist there? will you find a strong shooter of the ball there? will you find a strong distributor of the ball there?.. dey there dey waste time based on say you won impress frauds yeye ajegunle agbero’s forming politicians. instead of doing the needful mtcheeew!!!

      • Greenturf 1 year ago

        If including home base players is mandatory then Peseiro is better of scouting the academy’s.

        • @Exactly my brother @Greebturf. The Academies is the talent bed of Niaja football!. afterall thats where the likes of Orban, Osimhen, Chukwueze, Iheanacho Awoniyi comes from.. and I can go on and on.

          Just goes to show!. if our NFF don’t even know and understand this, where are they actually leading this Countries Football Too.

      Key word: DEAD LEAGUE! Faxx! Just wasting time and he will still list Ahmed musa in the team despite countless playaz have had a better season than him.
