  • Please, why weren’t the players that rescued us in the last U-23 qualifier against Libya invited for this match in Sudan? Osimhen, Okereke, Dennis, Nwakali, Uzoho, Awaziem, Ozonwafor. For continuity sake and so that we don’t start running helter-skelter after the first leg like we did in the previous round. Or have we forgotten so soon? They even need to be playing together for cohesion before the upcoming U-23 nations cup and Olympics (hoping we qualify). This team is the future Super Eagles and a friendly against Ukraine shouldn’t have denied us the use of Osimhen (and even Dennis who has also just received a call up). Even if Osimhen’s case is understandable, the changes in personnel(our previous starting line-up) are just too many.
