Good squad but who,is Osei? Never heard of him. Olisah Ndah and Jamilu Collins should be in the team, I’d drop Lookman,and Osei for them.

I think you meant Bright Osayi- Samuel @ Fenerbache.. Good choice. I’d keep him and drop Aina, he hasn’t been playing ,inch and we need to see what Osayi can do. Nacho nko? He’s gotta be in there, Osihmen out Nacho in. Osihmen doesn’t need to show us nothing, we know he’s no 1.

Your irrational hate for Lookman knows no bounds that you will drop him for a defender ?

The guy who created Nigerias only goal in its last 3 matches ?

Weren’t you the one complaining about too many wingers? Now you’ve loaded the team with wingers, Dessers also plays as a wing forward .

LOL. If assists now define who should be invited then Musa who leads the SE in assists in the last 2-3 years should head the list of invitees. Not so?

Yes naw. But VE would rather we not play the games than invite Musa. Now I’m the one getting accused of having irrational fear of Lookman.

4 outright "wingers" in a squad of 30 is too many ? You didn't notice how many midfielders I listed ?

Your head is not screwed on properly.

Dessers is in the team as a striker.

Musa does not lead the team in assists over the last 2 to 3 years.

What kind of despicable LIE is that ?

No one has even asked who our coach will be for these games, Salisu? If so why's it taking NFF this long to give some clarity about the coaching situation?

I find it odd that you picked Ekong who has been warming the bench in a relegation bound Watford over Balogun who has largely been superb and consistent for a Rangers team on the rise...

You must be a rocket scientist. How did you come up with this list of brand new players?

Wait a minute.... These are exactly the same average players we are already using. You are as serios as Nigeria already are.

He has no place in the team until he figures out what is his best position.

He is not good enough to build a team around him.

He is not good enough as a midfielder, or lone striker.

I dont fancy a 442 but that would be the only formation he would thrive in.

I like Balogun but How many more years can he give us ?

Better to look at younger options.

Maybe I'm being too harsh.

Yeah, Nacho has no place in the team but your glorified division 2 players do?

I don’t know what your gripe against Nacho is (I know there has to be something) but anyone who’s ever played “set” knows that your contentions about Nacho are both nonsensical and laughable. All the critical things considered (goal scoring, ball retention, ball distribution, dead ball expertise), he is arguably our best football player right now.

I was somewhat amused to see that you’ve already moved on from Ejuke. How seriously do you really expect to be taken? The minute a new Nigerian name shows up on the roster of some average European club, you’re all over it. You’re like that snoop-dog who can’t resist picking up a chewed-up bone somebody threw away🤔🙂❗️


Cheers.

I will add one more person: A. Amoo in the attacking midfield. That kid Amoo needs to be included in squad. He is capable of unlocking any stuborn defense.
