    I am a Ghanaian,also a fan of Super eagles.Keshi is doing a good work with the super eagles but i think tje dropping of Sunday Mba is something that as at now still buffles me.One cannot do such a thing.A player that won the cup of nations for you?That was a hash one on Mba.As a Ghanaian and an african,i have come to love the way Mba plays,he fights till the end and does things that even Obi Mikel and the likes cannot do.What a pity?All the same,goodluck Super Eagles

    For reason of dropping any player is best known to Keshi and invariably good for Nigeria because he is not armeteur in coaching. Good luck to super eagles, we anticipate u and the cup back to our dear country.
