    Since serria Leone came to Nigeria to play a 4 all draw with eagles, eagles have never recovered from the drift.
    The 10 goals against Sao Tome even exposed the team the more to weaker teams … And now that even the football authority could not pay salary of coach reminds me of wat happened to bonferree jo .in s/Leone.. the game ended 1 nil. Over there.just because the nfa wanted him out .
    Do they want paceiro.? I told bonferre try to win even if they game u weak players . He said no problem.atlanta 96 is his record to get a new contract in gulf region.and he lost and flew to sign a contract in Asia ..
    Paceiro need a win but will nff allow.only 16 days remaining.
    Dey plan to invite players that wil loss the game
