    This Orban will do well. Nigeria needs to cap him or else he will go to Togo.

  • Wishful thinking that coach will not Cap Orban. He is to busy dancing to the tune of local mentality NFF. Village people who are suppose to have international exposure from all the monies they have been chopping.

    NFF are destroyers they will not cap Orban thier priority is NPFL. Yet when players get the International accolade that Victor Osimhen and Chukwueze are doing now. The bastards will be the first to fly on a plane and take credit to the world press that those boys are from Nigeria. Assholes those NFF people complte assholes.
