shocked shocked shocked shocked shocked did Keshi take palm-wine or Ogogoro b4 compiling this list?
no Martins, Odemwingie What's Shittu & bench warming Rabiu Ibrahim doing there?
it's obvious there's something fishy going on.
I'm soooo sorry but I don't think these eagles will fly in SA. I forsee the subsequent sacking of Keshi. angry angry angry

Meanwhile Nigerians can expect a very difficult match against Catalunya on January. Catalunya has named a squad of SIX Barca players and some strong la Liga players. Stephen Keshi has said he will only play the local players. Last time, Catalunya beat us 5-0. I hope they dont double that this time.

I support Keshi for not inviting Osaze and Taiwo. But at least,he should have invited Matins, this is because I don't see any quality strikers in that squad.

we need at least an experience forward to inspire those guys he invited.

Sly comments, did u forget we've had this 2 and many others around with then returning nothing but acrimony at the nations' cup? Let the boss do things his way.

keshi is an idiöt.....
what's the point in picking 10 forwards and having only 6 midfielders in a squad? nigeria shouldn't even bother going for the competition. i am so disappointed in keshi with names like yobo, shittu, etc in the squad!

theres a quota system which MUST be put into play by ANY national team coach while presenting his list to Nff, otherwise, they wont approve the list. Rabiu ibrahim, shittu 'the elephant' represents a part of the country that must be included. Do u stil wonder why minister of sports always goes to a particular zone of the country?

Ozase is doin well in his club no doubt but he is a traitor,he cannot be trusted,he gave lagabac problems also gave siasia problems which eventually led to his sack,keshi is very weary of ozase,no coach wants a player dat wil cause disaFfection in d team,keshi is spo on on dis, I see us being among d last 3,dat is if we don't eventually lift dat trophy
