  • Which kind of list be this. Another disaster loading.

  • This man and corruption are 5&6

    • He is a big time crook. Still don’t know why he is still around the national team as one of the coaching staffs

      • It’s Amaju Pinnick’s fault, cos I see no reason why we always go for the wrong personnel in our football.

        Please we should move on from calling him names for goodness sake!He’s no crook!
        He has served his punishment and I’m sure he has learnt from his wrongdoings.We should assess him based on his performances which has not been disappointing based on Chan playoffs against Ghana.
        Based on limited time and difficult conditions he has to work with I would give him and his crew a thumbs up.
        Should he fail against Tanzania blame the Nff not Salisu.How do you expect a coach to build a team in two weeks?It’s a strange and bizarre practice under Pinnick’s regime which should be redressed in the new dispensation.

          You always blame your FA but you should know that repercussions takes a lot of money. It’s very expensive to prepare and with the budget they have they can only do a short time preparations. This problem is with almost all African countries that’s why we are always under achievers!

    I doubt this is the best u23 will produce with players all over Europe……This dude even invited a 4th division player from Spain wow….

    • Footballfanatic 1 year ago

      We can produce*

      • Greenturf 1 year ago

        This is the best he could get because at this time no top European team will release it’s players for an international outside the FIFA window.

    Ghana U-23 opened their camp six weeks ago and are ready to play Mozambique on sunday. Other African teams too are already together and battle ready, while the Nigerian u-23 are just assembling players to face Tanzania on saturday. What a fire brigade approach!!
