You guys really need to worry about the apparent strategy of making the Super Eagles a composition of mostly Diaspora-born players. We have seen some quality ones, but, we shouldn't lose sight of the fact that the Nigerian team is better off structured on a foundation of quality players that started in Nigeria and are doing well in Europe. We have a decidedly Nigerian way of playing and a certain culture that can't be taught in European academies. Little wonder our best players at the World Cup were Ahmed Musa, Wilfred Ndidi , Oghene Etebo and Kenneth Omeruo. Musa and Omeruo made the match day team of the day at the World Cup after the Iceland game. Etebo was acknowledged the best player against Croatia. Ndidi was a beast in all three games. They share one trait: they all started in Nigeria. If we invite any foreign born player, he should be of a higher quality than players we already have in similar positions. Opening the doors to rejects of European countries is not the way to succeed.



Kpom! Maintaining our identity and a distinct style of play is very Important. Most of the internet Nigerians posting rubbish here , who themselves have probably never stepped foot in Nigeria wont understand. The likes of Balogun and Troost get a pass because we don’t have options but Danjuma hasn’t proven nothing so far.


But do we have credible options for Danjuma? Why is his case different when we are using right footed players at LB? My issue is why Rohr hasn’t tried the LBs from the Athletico Madrid friendly.

Errr...he just did, in the Liberia match. His name is Ebube Duru and he came in during the 2nd half of the game.
Fact is that his performance was quite a downgrade from that of Jamilu Collins who played the first half.

Not sure why people intentionally deny the fact that the HB players are several notches below the FB players. That is a known fact and anyone positing otherwise is just being disingenuous.

Oh ok I couldn’t tell who was who and even the Collins guy wasn’t good IMO. But there was the young lighter skin LB that came in second half the A. Madrid game, don’t think we’ve given him a try.
