@ COACH UCHE EUCHARIA, We have players but no Aggressive one, we lack characters, i went home angrily when watched them with dwaft ghana black queen in Ghana, am not happy with any Nigerian player who is not aggressive, unagreesive player is not a future footballer, when u loose ball you chase it with aggressive and collect back or take to safe place and recover, our players today are too lazy, lacks Moral fiber, shown no creativity, full of Ingenuity, feels unconcern, so no team win gold with lazyness of this our new Nigerian players. take correction from people's message and make up your team then you win all ur maches both in olympic.

Here come coach Eucharia again, no even one single yoruba female player inform to be called to camp. Where is Kemi Abiodun, Yetunde Aluko, Loveth Ayila, Christiana Osundele, Esther Sunday and the others? Our female football is going down again in africa. We should not make same mistake that get us out of all african games. We have skillful female footballer but they lack tactics, and is high time we call a spade a spade, the female national team is far beyound coach Eucharia, not because she's a woman, but her impact is not fect in the team.

@Tokslex don't bring your tribalism here. As far as I know, these 2 players are Yorubas Joy Jegede & Oshoala Asisat.
