Hmmm.... Well, I expected to see Ambrose and Echiejile on that list. Well this may jst b d break for Kingsley Madu and troost-Ekong.

That midfield tho... too many returnees.Looks lean to me. Well mayb another opportunity for Lukman and Joel Obi to prove their worth. I dnt see any natural holding midfielder on that list. Me think we still need Mikel for that role.Babatunde's link up play from d middle will also b missed.

For the forward, i had expected to see atleast one of Success, Ezekiel or Iheanacho. Good to see Emenike back.
Odion Ighalo who to me is Nigeria's most inform striker now is also missing.Ujah made d list ahead of Ighalo ok o.

And hu is dat Silvester Igboun? shocked

No b mouth our home based Eagles can beat this team.

Well, Oliseh u are d boss. We are watching you in 4D.

Nigerian players are full of mediocres.
Re: Oliseh Calls Enyeama, 17 Foreign-Based Players For Tanzania by nerodenero: 5:51pm On Aug 17, 2015
Seat belt on Chelsea's bench has denied Mikel a chance.If these other midfielders can do well, the door might as well be shut against Obi completely. Once second behind Messi and now a "bencher", sad story.

Wishing them the best but can't place my hope on them yet.

[size=20pt]Chai!The names of players I am seeing here and their clubsides show that Nigeria is no longer a force to reckon with in global soccer; very discouraging.Not even a Pep Guardiola would perform magic with these kinda players.Yet Nigerians are having a high expectation from Oliseh,when we obviously have mediocres now playing for us.When Super Eagles was Super Eagles,who are these ones to think of making the Eagles team?
I wish Oliseh the best ,anyways!

Oliseh now count down to your dismissal start now! Cos in naija everyone is a coach which means we all have our different first eleven, so no matter the pattern u play just know that naija fans won't like it.

I believe Oliseh knows this players he invited well enough to prosecute the Tanzania match. Those left aside will definitely be invited in subsequent call ups. At the end of the day what we need is good football and 3 points. People will not care about the players invited if we play good football and run away with 3 points.

Looking at the talent I suggest park the bus and hit them on the counterattack.

Good luck oliseh, seeing our talent pool as is....u will need all the help u can get. Just stay humble and continue leaving Mikel on the bench far far away.

Best of luck.

Foreign based indeed, if someone ain't careful he might lose his teeth while trying to pronounce those clubs... Good to see mikel outta the list, imagine other players leaving their clubs cuz they need playing time to improve, mikel on his part decides to stick to bench warming cuz of money or British citizenship
