    What makes the “unveiling” of this list of Super Eagles for just 2 friendly games such a massive secret? We build up unnecessary tension that affects players when they get on the pitch in a tournament. Rather than sort out passport and visa issues the NFF now wants to turn the naming of this Poland-Serbia list in 3 weeks time into a fiesta.

      Well said bro. The invited players are already processing their visas. It’s only we the fans that don’t know who and who are on the list. Nff is doing a good job.
