    I wish them a journey mercies.

    I remain humble and we can only pray for the Super Eagles to excel under Oga Rohr.

    I have said it earlier today that Oga doesn’t have to use the foriegn based players against Benin and Lesotho and I’m so glad that Babayaro have spoken.

    I am afraid what are ahead of the coaches of the Nigerian team in Cameroon but what do I know? Nigerians hate to hear the truth. Good luck Eagles. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

    • we know waitin day your mind my omo9ja forget.we know who you are ok

    • “…i have said it earlier today that Oga doesn’t have to use foreign based players against Benin and Lesotho and i’m so glad Babayaro have spoken…”[email protected]

      Why wouldn’t Babayaro say it when the ONLY ROAD TO HIS BELLY HAS BEEN BLOCKED BY OGA ROHR?

      Were u not among the pple that applauded Rohr for inviting Sodiq?

      Have u forgotten ur Onuachu?

      U visited owngoalnigeria.com, read what your master wrote(bcos Rohr has blocked his only road to his belly) & claim u are the one that said it first.

      Omo9ja; u & Truth are like two parallel line…. The two of u can never meet.

      I went thru the Benin squard & discover they have only 5 players based in africa.
      The rest (majority) are based in France.

      Your homebase that can’t withstand the strength, skills, pace, tempo & agility of their fellow homebase players from other african countries(not even in CAF CL/ CAF CC) are the ones that can handle foreign based players from Benin.

      The last time i checked TOGO homebased skillful & talented players whipped urs 4nil.

      Tell ur homebase to qualify for chan and caf cl group stage first b4 coming to help us get one point from this important match tankiu….


  • Most of these guys never travel on the sea before so I don’t know why they have to go through such. It will take then days to recover from the sea sickness. Even with tablets that we don’t even know if it will make them test positive for drugs. Everything is just wrong about the planning. Will still be disappointed even if we wins the match. What is the Buhari doing with his jet when we have responsible ppl in need of a jet?

    I come here everyday to read sports news and what i see most times under the comment session is becoming quite uncivil. Sports is meant to bring respect for each other, unity and both physical and mental wellbeing….the reverse is becoming the case here. One cannot air his or her opinion without being abusively and destructively criticized. In as much as criticism is allowed in everything…we shouldnt do that to demean, abusive and disrespect others.

    If someone’s opinion doesnt go well with yours, state yours without being violent or disrespectful about it. Lets learn to be civil. I wont call names, those who are guilty know themselves. Do have a wonderful day ahead.
