    All this scoring in second division and non top five leauges does not move me one bit because of poor quality of defenders. So for now my best sE strikers remain ;Osihem, Teri morfi, Ihenacho and paul( cos of excess goals though playing outside top five. The rest should wait for their time. I did not forget simy. Let him move to a big club and prove his worth not to stay in a small clubs scoring penalties and cheaps goals

    If you score thirty goals in a second division in Spain, will that make you equal
    to Messy or Iheanacho in the Premier League in England ? In Troost-Ekong in Watford, the Watford Club is being promoted to the Premier League as we speck. Like a friend just said above, l am not impress specially if the Umar’s Club remains in the second Division next season. He is lucky, he probably have a good agent ,so far to be getting the rave that is getting in Nigeria.

    I will say this because of our players not be because of the NFF, Oga Rohr or his followers.

    Don’t play because you have to represent Nigeria but play this football game to the best of your ability.

    It is your career and take that seriously like what Simy, Sadiq and other players are doing these days.

    If the manager of the national team is interested in one of you, he would make a move otherwise, continue working hard to prove your worth.

    For me, Oga Rohr has nothing to prove to anymore. I have seen it all.

    He was in charge during the world cup in Russia with our A team, what did he achieve?

    NFF and others that making excuses here and there have brainwashed people to the extent that, playing in lower leagues shouldn’t determine the fate of Nigerian players but the quality that the player poses.

    Furthermore, the coach went to Egypt in the aimed of redeeming his image that has already tarnished in Russia but what has happened in that tournament was terrible.

    Again, he had his top players that were playing in top leagues all over the world and in the end, Nigeria can only settled for the third place position in that tournament.

    Now, they are bn brainwashed that any player that is playing in the second division or lower leagues are not good enough but wait a minute, what did Oga Rohr achieve with his experience team so far? Against Sierra Leone 4:4

    Nigeria always qualifying to world Cup and Afcon with ease under Oga Rohr with some games left to be played right?

    Does that mean Sodiq and Simy will never smell the actions of the national team of their country?

    Before, he said his team was young and from that to, you have to play in the top leagues or at the better club. Scoring goals is not enough.

    You are having the most scary squad in Africa now, you feel like your team is not good enough until the most experienced of all time striker Ighalo comes in?

    You made Okoye no1 because his half Nigeria, half German? Thank God that Uzoho proves his wealth experience against Lesotho.

    I am shaking my head for the coach, NFF and his followers that believe the coach is doing the right thing.

    Congratulations to you Sodiq. Keep the fire burning.

    I will keep telling you all the truth. Fingers crossed. God bless Nigeria!!!
