Nice. Nigeria's male teams are usually unreliable these days - football included. You cannot confidently predict their win. I hope we won't be disappointed this time around.

Esan are Biafrans. Okogie is even an Igbo name. These are Edo with Igbo blood...very hairy, strong bones, flat head top, well built and muscular like Igbos. Physically you can't tell the difference between Edo with Igbo blood...the Esan, Ogbonna, Igbanke, e.t.c., from Igbos.
