    My friend they are not ready.we know it’s an age grade competition meant to discover and nuture future stars and not a win at all cost scenario.The truth is this team from all indications has been compromised ab initio.

    I just hope the untouchables do not derail the dynamics of the team.Abba Bichi & co,stardom is never forced but earned.manu ,am so sorry about your plight. What is integrity compared to putting food on your table? Leave that talk for Dennerby. In all i wish my dear Nigeria the best

    • I know my brother I wish them luck but African and Nigerian leaders mentality is just plain retarded and makes no sense. What does your fathers position have to do with your worth and talent as an individual as regards to this Aba Bichi situation. Goes to show you how utterly shameless these people are. If I did not put in the work you can’t pay me to embarrass myself on international tv because I used a fathers or relatives influence to get in. Do these people realize that a lot of work, strategy, sacrifice and planning is needed to achieve success. Do they think the Messi’s, Ronaldo’s, Mbappe, Van Dijik were looking for handouts and not putting In major work to be successful like they are today. I feel sorry for this Bichi dude going embarrass yourself like that useless no.9 aigbogun took to U-20. If you don’t put in work you will be embarrassed idk if they think other countries are sleeping or will just let you come in and win without any preparation

    For the first time, manu team is going to world cup with two defeats via friendlies and failing to keep a single clean sheet before world cup proper..

    The boy use to pick up pure water after training that was why they pick, and yet few saw the true meaning of that statement.. He is surely the youngest member of the squad and likely wouldn’t get game time except in major injuries and card suspension, but my annoyance is not taking better qualified played esp those who came from outside Nigeria, we lost David alaba this same way, hope we won’t lose more..
