    Senegal, Cameroon, Germany…..If all these are true as being touted in the media, then huge kudos to the NFF this one time. Friendlies dont come “quality-er” than these

    • Absolutely Dr Dre. I second your commendation of the NFF if this games germinate. Credit given where due.

  • We have played Argentina, Brazil, Ukraine, Senegal, Egypt, Algeria and Tunisia in the last 7 friendlies, how about Morocco and Ivory Coast for quality opposition? Morocco are the only quality North American side left for us to play and Ivory Coast look like they are building a quality side as well.

    Plus we have now been given a golden opportunity to test the likes of Sebastian Osigwe, Mathew Yakubu for the third goalkeeper spot and Michael Olise as AM in a match situation, plus properly fine tune the search for Ndidi’s deputy

    The NFF must not waste this

  • Hope to see some new faces in the team. We already know what most of the players have to offer. But those WHO have been impressive for their clubs and want to make the leap to the National team should be given a chance to strut their stuff.
    Players like Sadiq, moffi, olise should be invited while players like Ejuke, Moses simon, Akpoguma should be called for the friendlies.

    What constitutes a “quality friendly?” Any game against another national side is valuable. The Super Eagles also have to learn how to win against minnows. The Sierra Leone lesson cannot be forgotten.
