    Congratulations, Stephen Eze for taking the Nigerian spirit to ur new club & Bulgeria, Europe so quickly.
    I predicted earlier that Nigerian football will become a toast & very prominent in global football after the WC tournament in Russia.
    We are still months away to the mundial and Nigerian players are showing so much abilities & highlighting the pride of our dear nation week in, week out.
    We shall witness a sudden exodus of players to Europe, East Asia & America soon.
    The foundation is firmly being laid by the NFF new boss & Coach Gernot Rohr.
    Kudos!
    Keep the flag flying..

  • Keep it up Eze and continue keeping Nigeria flag flying temporarily in Bulgaria because you are there for a short time, pls your talent will be needed in more competitive leagues like Spain, Germany, England, Italy and France
