    By the way why does some Jersey have names at the back and others don’t..

  • Sometimes when we castigate our own players, it doesn’t mean we hate them but it pains us to see them pushing themselves so hard to bring honor to the country but without success. This can spur the players to give it one more push. That one more push is what the WAFU Eagles has done and succeeded. There are more pushes to be pushed. At this stage, Nigerians are satisfied with your performances. So go for it and make us happy. Congrats boys.
