    What are we doing?

    Playing against an African team is way better than playing against Saudi Arabian team. What is happening in this country, I don’t know. It seems like people in charge of the national team already confused.

    They are driving the team backward. That is reason why we needed more of the service of our ex players in this current NFF board. Anyway sha, the truth is bitter. God bless Nigeria!!!

    • Crystal god go bless omo9ja you complain too much saudi Arabia defeated Egypt africa no one team and you think they re pushover?

    • Dr. Drey 3 months ago

      come…..why are u always complaining aimlessly..? are you the one that will donate the money for nff to organize the friendly…??? Wen u organize a friendly, you will be the one to pay for the stadium, the hotel, the flight, the appearance fees and the match bonus of both teams. Now another team is prepared to take up that burden and you are here complaining. African team or no african team…..This friendly by every means is a welcome development.It provides opportunity to test more players and get the team to play one more game together

    MR ROHR’GALO!
    Hello mr Rohrgalo!
    Your new list of invited players are strong only if the experience players who failed On live up to expectations can rise up!
    After the WORLD CUP JAMBOREE, IGHALO has been working extra hard scoring goals in CHINA fake league BUT he will be needing 25 games to just 4 goals when playing for NIGERIA. Can you continue to trust him goal scoring responsibility? We have new stars like Akinyimi who scores goal at the europa league with Reckless abandon! Even Eleke has great scoring TALENT but he is only on standby! Strange decision-makers!
    ONAZi has been a lively servant prior to the england match and even joel obi. So their inclusion is a welcome boost and great decision. Give them one or two more chance again before abandonment!
    Musa MOHAMMED has been loyal to nigeria right from u17 days. So why not help his career by promoting him and inviting him to play? Back that guy up and clubs will show him respect. Not by standby position non sense!
    Nigeria should firmly invite Eberechi of QPR team in England because we need number 10s!!!! Chidi nwakali is a gifted player and number 10. Atleast FROM training sessions material to gradually move them to first team.
    Akpeyi and Ezenwa inclusion are spot on! Because nigeria don’t have super goal keeper again. They are still ok and manageable!
    SALISU yusuf should be replaced with a great young and loyal coach. Nigeria has progressed SALISU yusuf enough so let other ypunger intelligent persons take up THAT chance now!
    Coach Rohr galo! Nigerians are watching you closely because after our WORLD CUP JAMBOREE together with ighalo we want to see complete GAME ON SUPER EAGLES.
    Good luck
