    Am still at a loss why the Super Eagles team A did not play this Atletico Madrid team instead of the Congolese who might pose an anjury threat to our team!

      fifa rule says any player going to the world cup must ‘ve 10 days rest from the day the season ends..so even althletico players going to the world cup wouldn’t participate in that friendly

        So what is the bloody purpose for such an absolutely meaningless friendly if not for some people to make some illegitimate dollars for themselves

    @ Lucky I wonder myself. Congolese are very physical, can give our boys injury 

  • Super eagle A are playing world cup, why not playing atletico Madrid instead of Congolees, which wisdom is this, Super eagle need strong bone to fly.

    Playing atletico is exposing eagles team A to Argentina because Simeon who is from there will give them every detail about our team tactics. To me it’s a bad idea after all, we have other matches that ‘ll prepare us for Russia.

      ……but we have played against the whole Argentine team before.

    It is the 10 days FIFA rule for any WC bound players to rest after the league. It is assumed that our boys would have rested for 10days before playing Congo match. So except for Junior Kolosa, others may not play in this match.
