Akpoborie Questions Obafemi Martins’ Super Eagles Recall

Former Nigeria international Jonathan Akpoborie has questioned the recall of Obafemi Martins into the Super Eagles.

Martins, who has been in fine scoring form for Seattle Sounders, made a return to the Eagles after a two-year absence when he replaced Mikel Obi in the team’s 0-0 draw against Swaziland in a World Cup qualifier on Friday.

Reacting to the draw, Akpoborie labelled Nigerian coaches as being sentimental as regards players’ invitation.

“I thought they brought back Martins to score goals for Nigeria? No Nigerian coach is above sentiments,” Akpoborie wrote on his Twitter handle.

The Eagles will host Swaziland in the reverse fixture on Tuesday in Port Harcourt.

    Just state your point and refrain from name calling.

  3. The thing missing here is the timing of the Sid tweet; that will put the comment in context. No where  does that suggest Jonathan "questioned" Obafemi's recall, but rather sneers at his non-inclusion from the start; or the fact that he came on and was played from midfield, especially as the match ended goalless. Of course, I stand to be corrected in my presumption, but there is insufficient info in the quote to conclude he didn't want Obafemi Martins.
