    Amoo is the future of Nigeria’s midfield he will win this CAF award and go on to do great things after moving to a bigger league . Heaven bless Amoo and all deserving Super Eagles players.

     
    • Unique 2 months ago

      Surprisingly, Victor Oshimen was left out, Serie A Young Player of the Year! What criteria did CAF use to pick Aston Traore ahead of ahead VO9? Someone should explain to me?

       
      • Ignatius Abo 2 months ago

        Even Okoye was excluded despite singlehandedly keeping Rotterdam up last season. CAF are criminals.

         
      • Baddest 2 months ago

        @ Unique the last afcon was the criteria in picking these players and you know osimhen was not part of it ,that is the reason for his exclusion.

         
  • Baddest 2 months ago

    Ignatius Are you playing?? Okoye?? How many spectacular save did okoye made during the last afcon

     
    • Marvelous 2 months ago

      Okoye was among the highest in Netherland, Europe. Let that stick to your brain.

      Imagine V09 missing in the list?

      Imagine no Nigerian club in the list of clubs

      Imagine super eagles is not in the list of countries

      Thank you Mr. Dare, pinnick, Odegbami and Equavon for Killing our SE eagle and football.

      Thank all the sentimental fans who wanted Rohr to be out, you can see for yourself the result.

      1. Disgrace out of nations cup by a sick Tunisian team without a coach

      2. Lose world cup ticket to the poorest Ghanian team ever

      3. No Super Eagles in list of teams selected by CAF

      4. Only Simon could make the list ahead of Osimhen

      Who knows what will happen next?

        Add to all that the endless abuse we receive on this platform on a daily basis from self made urine. Thankfully, Field Marshal Bob helped us to place a curse on him after exposing his social media account. Have you noticed that Yaw has disappeared from here since Field Marshal Bob cursed him?
        Heaven bless Field Marshal
