  • For some Time now we rarely have a full house when we play friendly games.. what is really happening..lookman is not available for the games and no reason for his absence was stated.. when other countries Play friendly games they have all their players but we hardly have our players in our games

    • Important of friendly match is to blend them together but they are not there, you are absolutely right.

      Because most of them are switching clubs and they need to settle in quickly, because the new season will start earlier due to the Nov world cup.

      Someone like Okoye is moving from Holland to London, and needs to get a house, etc. Lookman is staying behind as his loan to Leicester City has run out and may need to go back to Leipzig. They have got things to take care of and the timing of the friendly doesn’t help.

  • Those in the camp also have things to deal with, awaziem played on loan in turkey, same with desser. There is news aino is not needed in Torino and has to look for a new club, desser told the media before he left for camp that his future is uncertain but will be communicating with the club president and agent via phone from the camp. I understand some players couldn’t secure visas but in all I see some Level of unseriosness in our players no wonder they didn’t make it to the world cup
