  • Williams d conqueror 3 years ago

    Good line up

  • Chima E Samuels 3 years ago

    This squad will bang in goals in short while. Nice one Rohr

  • But neither NTA nor AIT is showing the match. This is incredible, Mr Pinnick! Must we always watch online?

    • Sammy 3 years ago

      The match is on channel 419 on dstv. Believe it or not NTA is on channel 419.

  • I guess collins j is just there due to him being the only extra natural left footed full back in the team and not because he is there to fight for a starting spot. Even if we dont have a natural left footed full back in the team, aina is a much better left full back than jamilu, no offense to C.J. but his performances for the Super Eagles hasn’t been encouraging and he has a lot to do if he intends winning back that position.
    Good to see uzoho between the sticks, just like I expected, rohr wants his two goalies to be comfortable and battle ready to fit into the team whenever he calls on them. This will ensure that we have two dependable goalies in the Super Eagles.
    Glad iwobi has Been cleared for the match.
    Super Eagles go and enjoy yourself. Score goals, entertain the fans and win! win! win!
