  • I watched the match, Etebo seems not to be in the top form he was before he got injured.
    He is not the all attacking midfielder with cannon shots we use to know,two consecutive matches of him now I didnt see him take those long range shot or I missed it?.

    Siasia really did a great job on some of these players to make them get result for him.

  • My concern Is that my number 9 is not scoring.  makes me cry in my heart.I don’t know what is wrong.  With few days left for me to release the 35 man list .
