    It’s a good thing none of these CHAN Eagles is laughing or smiling in the photograph. They raised the hopes of millions, then gave us heartbreak

  • Welcome guys. Enjoy the moment. Some of you have not entered Aso Rock before, so charge your battery and take as many pix as possible. Be careful sha. Ask if it is ok first. National security thing. Don’t allow the few unappreciative Nigerians with their bad mouth dampen your spirit and make you sad. We appreciate you guys. You succeeded when others before you were not able to reach the finals. Well done.
