    Yes, Otabor must not only be thrilled but also be surprised that he was called up to the Nigerian National Team. Somebody should tell Nigerians what Otabor has done for his club that warranted his call up.
    Some of you journalists do not have the interest of the nation at heart, hence we learnt, some of you were going about promoting and singing his praise.
    We are told that he has not scored a goal in his last nine league games.
    Rohr just have to shine his eyes, else some people will make him loose his job
    Rohr and his technical team must work harder, as Nigeria at the moment, is having a pool of talented and hungry players scattered all over Europe and beyond. His should be to monitor closely. Sport journalists should also help him out in that regard.

    Let him show his stuff before condemning him. allnigeriasocceer.com has been writing bad things about him which is wrong. H e might not be that bad after all. Where you play does not determine how good you are sometime. After all Brazilian and belgium national teams invite players from chinese league. Journalism is now about pay me and i promote your player.

    lolz…it still suprise me on how he got a call-up..i see him as our secret weapon…but my advice to him is to see this as a stepping stone to greatness..whether he plays or not, when he gets back to his club he should work hard to score goals and work on his weak areas…because this kind of call-up signifies that nigeria still have him in mind…so he needs to buckle up…i wish him the best with the super eagles
