  • #That good…..It’s disastrous to hear that Alex Iwobi will miss this match…The Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) should FOCUS more of convincing players like Tammy Abraham and Dominic Solanke to play for Nigeria…We’ve lost the likes of David Alaba,Hai Robson-Kanu,Dele Alli,Kylian Mbappe and the likes….We shouldn’t afford to miss more..¤

      We didn’t loosen them. They didn’t just want to play for us. What is there in asking a player to feature for Nigeria and player accepting if not for the pride of Motherland. Even though ou political leadership is disastrous. Is Mbappe Nigerian?

  • Aaron Samuel is good choice ,he is smart and lucky.

    I think in a game like this a striker who is strong physically is needed to out class the Cameroonians n Aaron Samuel is a good inclusion.Rohr should look at him very well I hope he has something to offer.don’t forget that the Cameroonians will go with their normal physical style of play.
