  1. How can we ever progress in this country in terms of football/sports?
    We dropped Victor Anichebe, a young, fit and agile player for someone like Kanu who is old and should just honourably retire. Serious nations are taking their youngest and fittest to the WC while we are being sentimental about who goes and who does not, taking old and spent players with us. Let no one be surprised at our match results in SA

  2. I,wouldn’t know weather Our coach wants to do magic,why should he drop an energetic player full of life and power Ike Uche,Is he not better than some of the sellected players?

    Mr largerback,I just hope we will not lag back in this world cup.
