I remember I used to call Komekn, Moussa Dembele's Uncle back then... The lad is now at Lyon as Mariano's replacement. He was at Celtic then. The lad never see French call up yet ooo... And instead of Komekn to focus on seeing that his nephew gets his first NT call up he is here still trying to certify his wasteman theories and even play down on the rising star of Samu "Robben" Chukwueze. He brings in Sancho and Reiss Nelson but I wan ask... These guys have played more matches than Chuks naa and Chukwueze is in the BEST Technically proficient league in the world for Santa Claus' sake and doing it so good. Yet he says he is yet to see enough to adjudge Chukwueze a top quality young talent on the fast rise...

But when his nephew Moussa Dembele dey ball for Lowly Scotland, him no let us hear word for here oooo... Is that not chameleonish?




Anyway, Dad, yes ooooo... I'm looking forward to the cracker in Johannesburg. Would be busy by that period but will try to not miss the game. Things have been going very well but been so engaged Sir... Just say make I check in small before I ball out again. Greetings to you and your whole family... Greet Icon4s' Jnr especially for me... wink


This weekend... Despite the absence of several First XI stars like Ighalo, Ndidi, Shehu, and Mikel... And even missing Onazi due to personal issues Rohr has with him (about time we bring in Billing now), I think we are in for a very tough but interesting game tomorrow.

We should watch out for SA's Percy Tau and Lebo Mothiba. MOTHIBA IS CLINICAL and is strong... Tau is fast and skilful... Serero, if he plays, is slippery and sleek and should not be left out of sight. It would be a good game but if Musa and Iwobi bring their A- Game and if Chukwueze plays a part... And if either of Success or Nacho can fire from all cylinders, then we would edge it in the end.

I wish us the best tomorrow and hopefully that will provide a fine prelude for our Super Falcons taking on SA's WNT the following day in the AWCON....


Would be a fantastic weekend to remember eternally if we can beat both SA NTs.... Hehehehehehehehehe....


Well, then. But hope u will be back in time to work with the awards committee?

You are blind by negative prejudice you are unable to have a discussion without presuming hatred and deep seated dislike.

As a man thinketh so he is.


This discussion waa never about Isaac Success but the entire subject of age corroboration and the efficacy of the MRI in determining age.

But of course you can not see that.


Yes, continue seeing with your own positive prejudice .And please Like I said take your paper to FIFA.com, go there and share your positive prejudice about the MRI.

And in case u don't know, Isaac Success' age started the discussion. So next time do well to go through previous comments before jumping in. Ok?

I am done with you on that.

Don't mind Southgate. I have that article by Dina Fine Maron he is throwing about and I can tell you that it lacks sound scientific credibility. 'Have gone through it twice before and I can tell you that I will pick the works of Jiri Dvorak, John George, Astrid Junge, and Juerg Hodler in NCBI over whatever goobledygook Dina poured out in Scientific American. It is not every writer one should take seriously. In Science, we know that fact.



U think say me get him time? All these na just to discredit the reliability of the MRI with the sole aim of discrediting the ages of our ex-youth internationals that went through the MRI.

He is so persistent with his aims and objectives.

So how far na? How the go dey go? Shey u are getting ready for tomorrow's show down?

Nigeria approaching under-pressure South Africa with relaxed mind', says team coordinator Patrick Pascal

The top official of the Super Eagles has stressed that they won’t be playing under pressure against Bafana Bafana

Nigeria are going to approach South Africa game with a 'relaxed mind', according to team coordinator Patrick Pascal.

Despite both sides being a win away from the 2019 African Cup of Nations finals in Cameroon, Pascal believes the onus is on Stuart Baxter's men to perform at the FNB Stadium, Johannesburg on Saturday.
Gernot Rohr's men overcame a poor start to the qualifying campaign after losing their opener to Bafana Bafana in Uyo.

Afcon 2019 Group E permutations: What South Africa, Nigeria and Libya need to do
And a combination of South Africa's slip and Nigeria's superb form since their group stage exit at the 2018 World Cup put them in pole position in Group E.

“I want to tell you that we are going to South Africa with a relaxed mind because we know that our hosts are the ones under pressure,” Pascal told Goal.

“We are going to Johannesburg to play our normal game and try to secure a positive result so that we do not lose to them twice in the same qualifiers. We have corrected what made it easier for them to beat us in Uyo last year. We are assuring Nigerians that we are not going to disappoint them.

“They were fortunate to beat us when the Eagles were still in the formative stage and after then we have adapted and have performed creditably well including playing at the World Cup finals and also winning some important games. South Africans won’t have it easy this time around because we are ready for them.”

Also, Pascal confirmed the arrival of Bordeaux winger Samuel Kalu who encountered visa-related problem and was unable to join the rest of the team early.
“Kalu is with us and we have a full house now. We are fully focused on the Saturday game,” he added.

—goal

....but no complacency please. I will like them to approach the game like our qualification depends on it.
Qualifying with this game will really help our football development as we are likely to field an experimental squad against Seychelles which may also include capping of some available foreign borns.

With Etebo's injury, Agu and Ogu will likely start.

This is what our Midfield is reduced to. Who do we bring on to replace this guys if the need arises?

Well, what do I know. I just hope our Midfield is not over run by the Southies.

What do you think Mikael2?

There is no where in the News that it is carried that Etebo is injured. But even if he is injured, we don't pray for that, we have a very dynamic squad. Iwobi goes to CM while Iheanacho plays the number 10 role. There is no cause for any alarm.

South Africa vs Nigeria: Ahmed Musa to start as false ninePublished on November 16, 2018 By Ifreke Inyang

Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, is seriously considering playing Ahmed Musa in a false nine position, when they face South Africa in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday.


Rohr will be without top scorer Odion Ighalo, who is ruled out with injury.

And although he has Victor Osimhen and Isaac Success available, the German is keen on using Musa’s pace in running behind the Bafana Bafana’s defence.


The Al Nassr winger has impressed in training playing in the position and looks set to start upfront.

The option of playing Success upfront is still being mooted but for now, Rohr is pinning on using the pace of his forwards in Samuel Kalu, Ahmed Musa and Alex Iwobi in a 4-3-3 formation against South Africa on Saturday.

You mean some thing like:

Iwobi....Musa....Kalu

......Etebo.....Agu
.........Ogu.

I would rather prefer:

Success...Musa...Kalu

.....Iwobi....Etebo

...........Ogu

Collins..Ekong..Balogun..Aina


With Musa and Success switching positions.

You are so much on point....This is where the brains are beat into techniques and tactics...psychological maturity is built....bones mature...legs that last in high tempo for 120 minutes are formed...this is selection ground for national team...

We have five stars in u17...it would have been a different ball game for u20/21...we would have had a assemblage of talent...

We have continued to underrate the competition and importance of the U20/21 and we have continued to struggle at that age grade and this in turn has had its own negative effect in terms of churning out quality players for the Super Eagles.

The Europeans do not joke with their U21 Teams.

All over this Window of friendlies, I see the Europeans serious with their u20s and u21 in very serious friendlies with American teams and I wonder what is happening to Africa. Not even Nigeria can just get serious for once and do something to ball with these guys before we start hearing the next Messi and Ronaldo from these teams? Nawa o.

These are countries that recognize that fact that the future of their senior national teams lies in the strength and quality of their U20/21 teams.

From your proposition in the bold you haven't read the published article.

That doesn't look different from the one posted here by Goldfish80 a couple of months ago. Bros I have read so many articles on the reliability of the MRI. And as we speak the reliability ratings are still very high and FIFA is still running along with result.

I have known Okechukwu Uchebo right from his early days at Enugu Rangers.He featured prominently at the 2009 AYC but he didn't make the WYC team. Odion Ighalo and Danny Uchechi kept him out of the team.

He has never been much of a talented player. Honestly I didn't know what Keshi saw in him.

Uchebo? shocked

Nigeria’s topflight football league is again ready to receive a Nigerian international who plied his trade offshore. The ongoing transfer window has seen interest from Super Eagles 2014 World Cup star Michael Uchebo who is currently linked with a potential move to Aiteo Cup title holders, Rangers Int’l FC just a few days after Juwon Oshaniwa penned a deal with Akwa United ahead of the start of 2018/2019 season.
According to reports, Uchebo is believed to have agreed personal terms with Rangers Int’l with an announcement due in the days to come.
The 28-year old forward struggled to keep his career afloat since moving to Europe with the recent problem he had with Portuguese side Boavista, where he was ostracized from the team and wasn’t paid for months, having joined the Club back in 2014 from Belgian club Cercle Brugge before his release in June 2017.
Uchebo has featured for Nigeria at the Under-20 and Under-23 levels before being handed a call-up by late Stephen Keshi for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
The NPFL’s attraction to Nigerians abroad might be a glimmer of hope for the league as the players would bring a level of international experience to their prospective clubs.

Is it not better than they going to likes of Mongolia, Indonesia or Vietnam?

My people perish for lack of knowledge.

"Judas" is actually the same name as "Judah". They both mean " Praise ". So if you can name your son " Praise", you can as well name him "Judas".

That the betrayer of Jesus happened to be named " Judas" doesn't make the name bad. There have been other people named Judas who achieved great sucess and lived lives of righteousness. An example is the Jewish hero Judas Maccabeus who led the revolt against the pagan Greek Emperor Antiochus. (forgive the history lesson).

I've seen people named "Blessing" die in poverty, people named "Wisdom" do very stupid things....the list is endless. At the end of the day what matters is our hardwork, talent and maybe a bit of luck. Our names are just names. Nothing more. Like Shakespeare said "a rose, called by any other name, will still smell as sweet".

I don't so much believe in those "names following people thing" . Even though the meaning of my English name is Rock and I ended up in a profession that studies Rocks. However, one thing I know is there are certain names that people would not want to be associated with like I mentioned Judas and Hitler.

Forget this thing u are saying I know you will not dare name your son Judas or Hitler.
