    Martins deserve a call to Super Eagles by now.Pls Oliseh don’t ignore this guy cos he will surely give you the goals that have hitherto deserted your team.I believe so much in Martin’s ability to score goals.

    I think it’s high time all completesportsnigeria. com readers ask the management of Complete Sport to get on to Oliseh to invite Obafemi Martins just as he invited that little boy Iwobi from Arsenal. Give this guy a chance. The only striker I can call a real striker in the Super Eagle is Ighali but he has not been tested. So invite this Martins boy. What’s the big deal!!!!
