    If GENERAL ROAR were to be IN-CHARGE by now we would have been NO 1 in AFRICA and NO 5 in the WORLD just like in 1994…

      General Roar didn’t use players like Emmanuel Dennis who played well against Real Madrid in the Champions League.
      We need players featuring in the Champions League for Nigeria.

  • Morocco deserve to be among top 5 or at worst top 10, bcos Argentina remain first because they won the wc, what’s England and other nations doing above Morocco that came 4th and been doing good since the wc.
