    Come, someone please tell the gaffer -Oga Pesseiro to start monitoring Tim Iroegbunam with a view to inviting him ASAP -In short just call him up sharpwise! He’ll go a long way to solving our defensive midfield problem – He is a young lad (20 yrs or so) with a great pedigree already and skills to match, as a holding midfielder specifically, he actually plays that role exhibiting a box to box and very progressive ball carrying mentality, He’s been injured for up to a year now but now back to full fitness and should play or be in contention for his first competitive game in about a year on Sunday coming – may just be on the bench but I feel we should call him up NOW, if we sleep on him, trust me England will snap him up by calling him to the u21’S AND THEN GET IN HIS EAR ABOUT THE SENIOR NATIONAL TEAM – This kid can be our very own Jude Bellingham – So over to you oga Paserio – CSN do something patriotic and let this message get to him. And honestly, I still believe that we can still get Michael Olise and Hugo Ekitike – But Olise should be the priority after Tim. Olise’s dad has a strong influence on him still – he himself is a very quiet boy but there is nobody more skillful that him currently in world football – NFF please do some work. Thank you!
    I don try o!
