COMMENTS

WORDPRESS: 9
  • Nigeria should be very careful in this match to avoid unnecessary injury. See them coming with mostly home based players. Still don’t know the essence of the match.

  • Abeg, scan them well for Ebola oo

    So we will be playing against TP Mazembe!!!!! Lord have mercy.

  • Wouldn’t the team Salisu Yusuf fielded against athletico Madrid be a better have provided a better challenge and entertainment against Rohr’s team? Methink yes.
    Aphilly, deo omo9ja and the rest of d forumites I throway salute ooo.
    Guys, mek we leave matter for Matthias the real reason why Moses no gree show for 9ja camp na fear of catching Ebola from dis Congolese, Lol, the guy gotta protect his source of revenue.
    Anyhow good luck to the team, will be rooting for dem as usual

  • Still beats me what we stand to gain from this match. What would the SuperEagles gain from facing this home based squad of DR Congo? I suspect what the Congolese have in mind is brutal physical game bereft of any technical quality. I pray we don’t end up losing our players due to injury.

    Well, I’ll love to watch that match very important to much players invited. God4bid, A player can also pick injury during training game, and this is WC preparation. So I wanna see then tactics to break down strong Congolese defense

  • This friendly match does not make any sense for obvious reasons in my humble opinion.

    NFF would be blamed if anything goes wrong. See Dr Congo parading home based players like its a CHAN game.
