    Now this guy is back at LaLiga from one of the top clubs in Belgium. Hmm..Is there something in him that Coach GR is not seeing? Should we give him a Trial in our Defensive Midfield or CB? Can he be a part if the AFCON upcoming? This are questions we need to think and talk about I think

  • Agbo has been one of the unluckiest players in the SE set up. The coach has really never given him the opportunity to strut his stuff. At least, he gave Nwakaeme a chance and we all rated him instantly.

    I’m hoping Rohr invites a large pool of players for the dead rubber match against Seychelles and the friendly against Egypt next month. Players like Agbo, Aina, Lokosa, Alampasu, Adeboye, Ebuehi, Odey, Al Hassan, Afelokhai etc should prosecute the Seychelles game; while regulars play the friendly against Egypt.
