    Loool, with all the hype and noise making, our breedas couldn’t do anything. They were exposed like pack of cards

  • What a disgraceful display. For as long as we as a nation refuse to do thing right and on merit, we are not going anywhere. Let Manu Garba and Ugbade just go and rest. They have proved that they are not ready to move to the next level in their career as far as national team football is concerned.
