  • No player should pretend in that camp. We need the best legs to do wonders. God is saying something. Prophecy is loading…..

    The DR Congo friendly is a dead rubber. It is of no use and utterly unnecessary.

    • It will Forster unity and cohesion among the players. That energy from within couple with hatred to defeat opponent spring forth through matches like this.

  • we might be knocked out easily because rohr is taking about 12 injured players and 11 fit rookies to the World Cup. Am now shifting my attention on Senegal.

    I hope we don’t give all our energy and expose our strengths in friendlies and when we get to the main stage wc we then get clueless

    • Mr Rohr should not play with this tournament ohhh Injured players are in camp pretending to be fit. NFF hear the word of Nigerians, don’t play politics with our passion and patriotis.y going players are every where. Drop those who are stuck and not Bending to bend.

  • sad to learn that he will be missing the World cup as confirmed by Rohr

    Abeg the coach should just drop Simon. He pretended in all the FIFA world events that he went to and took space that a fit player would have taken. He would be missed but there’s no point taking injured players.

  • pls .my people which time is the match today pls.
