@Samm_Williamz: No wonder we lost.. So you guys are tell me there was nobody else that could replace him in the team?? Abeg abeg abeg🤬 Football is about team work not heroism for Christ sake!!

@HPAth44: Zaidu and Iwobi were not fit to play too. But Peseiro refused to use other players on the bench. Our players were average, and they were on the same level in quality; no “Super Stars” really. So why Peseiro kept using the same sets of players without resting them?! Yeye coach!

@AnelkaMaduka: He didn’t have to, there were other players on the bench that were fit

@areme007: 🥲🥲🥲 oh so sorry man. Why would the coach and the technical staff allow him to play. But Ola could have just declined that but I understand that spirit of giving it all to your fatherland 🥲🥲
