Former Super Eagles forward Joseph Akpala has taken over a coaching role at Belgian First Division club, KV Kortrijk.

Hopefully Bushboy will not follow the poor man into coaching and ruin his career again.

I think he scored the only goal in a friendly against France in 2009, when the SE beat France 1-0 in their backyard.

The difficulties of statistical thinking describes a puzzling limitation of our mind: our excessive confidence in what we believe we know, and our apparent inability to acknowledge the full extent of our ignorance and the uncertainty of the world we live in. We are prone to overestimate how much we understand about the world and to underestimate the role of chance in events -- Daniel Kahneman (2011), Winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics
