Minute By Minute: Nigeria Vs Bosnia

After a remarkable couple of games already today, Nigeria and Bosnia-Herzegovina have a lot to live up to!

  • Some of the players are trying but the coach Keshi is just a stupid animal by starting with Musa after our first game, I believe that Keshi has amount of money that Musa due pay him in every game which Moses and Shola can not pay, because there No reason Keshi can play Musa in this Game. KESHI IS JUST A GOAT AND LET NO ONE SAID THAT HE IS THE CAUSE OF EAGLE WINING OF NATIONS CUP BECAUSE HE IS NOT. BIG FOOL KESHI

  • Mr. STEPHEN KESHI BIG FOOL BIG GOAT
