    I trust Egypt,they would surely input him, what strikes me most is the 45 years goal keeper they are taking along… Cause experience matters a lot.  And nigeria is fielding one self-aclaimed 19yrs as goal keeper.  It is well

  • Please we don’t need negative energy at this point. We need to stay positive. Let us cut Rohr some slack because he is entitled to his opinion, just as the Egyptian coach. Somebody will be hailing the inclusion of a 45 years old while another will call it sheer stupidity. Neither of the opinions is completely right or wrong. I also differ in opinion about some of Rohr’s selection but the man is definitely not stupid. And he even needs good performance from eagles because he has more to lose than most of us if SE messes up. Personally I have made peace with a few points of contention i have with the team selection because there is absolutely nothing good my complaints will do. Let us choose to be positive. PLEASE.

    @segi Paul, so your recipe for a good goalkeeper is for us to have handed Peter Rufai a place in the team! I hail you coachito.
