ahh sleek reek you no like nigeria oh. why would you want lagerbeer to drop all his creative midfilders and leave useless players like keita,ayila ajilore in

@12large You got me wrong,by May 11th Lagerback needs to prune his 44 man list and submit a provisional list of 30 to Fifa,without any friendly played or camping,so realisticly he will need to drop 14 players,these are the 14 players  i believe he will drop is what i meant:

Goalkeepers:

1.   Bassey Akpan (Bayelsa United, Nigeria)

Defenders:

2.   Olubayo Adefemi (US Boulogne, France), Netherlands),

3.   Terna Suswan (Lobi Stars, Nigeria),

4.   Sam Sodje

Midfielders/Forwards:

5.   Brown Ideye (FC Sochaux, France),

6.   Femi Ajilore (Groningen, Netherlands),

7.   Joseph Akpala (FC Brugge, Belgium),

8.   Yusuf Ayila (Dynamo Kiev, Ukraine),

9.   Onyekachi Okonkwo (FC Zurich, Switzerland),

10.   Omatsone Aluko (Aberdeen, Scotland),

11.   Solomon Okpako (Kano Pillars, Nigeria),

12.   Bartholomew Ibenegbu (Heartland FC),

13.   Michael Eneramo (Esperance, Tunisia)

14.   Yakubu Aiyegbeni,

He wouldn't have time to even access them except by tapes he watches or what he is told,so i'm speculating he will drop these  14 and allow the others 30 fight for a shirt under his watchful eyes,from which he will eventually drop 7,and be left with 23 he will presecute the WC with.I love Nigeria ooh! just my thinking.

I pray he doesnt axe victor anichebe.

I have watched him play ever since he came back from injury.

He's been very effective and efficient.

@ henry101

I have been watching Anichebe too,and he may make the final 23,if he proves to be a better and more effective winger than Obasi,Nsofor,Osaze,but to make it as a striker may be near impossible because like i always say Lagerback can only go with 23.
