  • But Brazil and Senegal FAs don’t have the same issues and have sorted their VISA issues since? Oga Pinnick and board fellows, are you still active or EFCC is seriously distracting you guys? By the way, the quick arrival of the Rohr (and his foreign assistants) and the Europe-based guys is what is important. AS long as that is not affected, NFF should ensure the match goes ahead. If Imama, Alloy and their godson, Ezenwa are not in Singapore, nothing spoil.

    Eh now not everyone will play. So the friendly can go on with the available players. If They are having visa problem then they should sit this one out.

    The important people, Awaziem, Azeez, Chukwueze, Rohr, Troost, Iwobi, Ndidi, Osimhen, Dennis and Onuachu have posted photos of them on their way and will already have arrived. They are the ones doing the business on the pitch.

    That a pen pusher in the NFF couldn’t apply for a visa on time is no reason to cancel the match. It will take place with or without NFF officials present

    At least ten invited players will be available to manager Gernot Rohr when the national team begin their preparations for the prestige friendly against Brazil. 

    Spanish-based trio Samuel Chukwueze (Villarreal), Chidozie Awaziem (CD Leganes) and Ramon Azeeez (Granada) flew to Singapore on Tuesday and they were on the same flight as Rohr. 

    Glasgow Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo and his good friend, CSKA Sofia’s Viv Solomon-Otabor were sported at the Super Eagles Fairmont Hotel in Singapore this morning, having flown in from the United Kingdom.

    Wilfred Ndidi, Alex Iwobi, Emmanuel Dennis, Victor Osimhen and William Troost-Ekong have also reported for international duty.

    Was Imama mentioned for real?is he not suppose to be preparing his team for the return leg against the hawks of Togo a match fixed for 19th of this month?this lackadaisical approach to national teams other than the super eagles is costing us greatly.
    Meanwhile,the mens Olympic playoffs billed for Egypt will commence early November and preparations are not in gear yet.So a week to the tournament NFF will hurriedly assemble a team and plan for another disaster just like their female compatriots had a few days ago.
    This is ridiculous,it’s bizarre.I think all attention is focused on the super eagles by the NFF and less on others,but the super eagles depends on this feeder teams and if things carrys on as it’s we may not have a stable and sustainable super eagles in the future.

      What the heck is Imama doing in Singapore, when there is fire on the mountain at home? Togo is about to Jackie Chan us out of Chan. I would expect that Imama would be 100% focused on the Togo game. How is his presence in Singapore going to help us overcome Togo?

    Visa problems, bonus problems – the perpetual Nigerian malady. Always guaranteed. This is self-inflicted backwardness.
