    l should emphasize that Moses should allow lheanacho to play the free kicks if he is on the field playing. Moses should know by now that he can’t score from free kicks like our lheanacho who specialized on how do it best. if Moses refuse, Rohr should immediately change him. Wish you all good luck.

    • @Edoman
      This is news to me. Is any player so powerful as to fragrantly disobey a coach’s instructions? Where is overriding strategy, team interest?

  • I suggest that Kelechi should start against Croatia barring any biased behavior by him.He needs to train hard especially in setpieces if he wants to start the game

  • Judging from d last friendly game,it is not in d best interest of d team for only moses to take all d set piece n. ‘Especially corner kicks’ it was exhausting so for some corner kicks he should b a finisher instead of Mikel in short if Mikel is he should take d corner kicks
