    Let him win world best player we don’t care a hoot as long as his last ball in the box for SE remains wayward. To be very Candid Moses cost us the world cup ticket. If he had score that delightful pass from Kelechi in Kumasi the story will have favourable to us. That why we that for saw this have long clamoured for Obinna Nwobodo invitation and victor moses return . This are players whose final or end product is superb. I don’t see that team bringing joy to Nigerians anytime soon unless the new coach will carry out a total overhaul of the players that are non productive. That is exactly what late lend Kechi did and the result was there for all to see.

    He’s performing well in France because his coach at nantes doesn’t tell him to forget tactics and formation, but rather express himself.

  • Edoman 2 years ago

    He did not live up to the standard in both games. His dead ball kick in Abuja was a disappointment to millions of Nigerians. He is not special really.
