    So why is Nigeria zig zagging in naming our squad? Gernot Rohr said he would hand in the list to the NFF on the 4th of May. It appears the NFF is ‘DOCTORING’ the list to include friends and family. Na wa for this country!

  • Nigeria has not even released the preliminary 35-man list, not to talk of the final 23-man list, and see Iceland is already done and dusted with their World Cup squad. In case, NFF don’t know yet, Russia 2018 na tomorrow oo!

    Maybe they’re doctoring the list to include their friends and family and Rohr is refusing, as they will still blame him for any bad result in the end.

    Abeg, we don’t want any more gatecrashers like Babatunde Michael, Uche Uchebo, Reuben Gabriel, Ejike Uzoenyi ooo; with the likes of IK Uche and Moses unbelievably left out. How dare Keshi bench Moses for Babatunde?

    NFF, no be only una go verify the list. We sef must verify. Na war e go be ooo. 🙁

    • Shut up u,I think they should delete people like u in this forum, which country has release their list,

      • I just came back here to check for any sports news updates & I see one senseless comment from ubah saying “shut up.”

        “shut up”? Really, chief, on what basis, biko? We just settled deo’s & ayphilly’s fight & this one is trying to pick another one. Sorry to dissapoint you, I won’t grant you the pleasure. Man-children everywhere.

        Yes, I rushed to comment & probably misled by the first comment. A honest mistake & is that the end of the world.

        ubah, if anyone should shut up, it is you. I challenge you to make a meaningful contribution devoid of insult. Guy, u know you can’t stand me there. So, biko, swerve left.

    You people should try and understand things and take it easy oo. I blame CSN for all this confusion they are causing here. The list Iceland is about to release is preliminary squad not Final squad. I confirmed this on FIFA website. FIFA will be the one to announce the final squad of all participating team going to the world cup. And so far, only Australia has announced their 35-man squad and if Iceland should announce theirs on Friday they will be the second national team to do that. So why the Pressure? There are still about 30 teams that hasn’t done that,why must Nigeria be in a hurry? Super Eagles are not Rushing to Russia o. My fellow sportsmen,let give Gernot Rohr time to do this and stop the Unnecessary pressure.

    People are insulting others to “shut up” for a written opinion. I wonder which parents brought up these people. Complete Sports actually makes money from the hits of our contributions. It is not in their financial interest to ban anybody. If anybody should be shut out it is those who are disrespectful

  • Guys no need for insults,@kel fifa has given a date for all preliminary lists to be annonced so all countries has a time frame to submit dier list.its not only nigeria dats has not annouced diers,as a matter of fact only australia has released it’s own.xo no nid to rush,rohr will release his list soon and i guess there is going to b a press confrence for dat

    • Thanks @Chairmanfemi, @ako amadi and @Tony for the civil clarification.

    Gernot Rohr knows that an average Nigerian is a football coach and so has to be careful about the list to avoid being seen as corrupt. Add this to the fact a lot players that need to make up the list are either peaking form or injured. Therefore, he needed time to do a blameless job of drawing the list. So let’s be patient!
