The names linked with the investor are Ahmed Musa (CSKA Moscow), Michael Uchebo (Cercle Brugge), Uche Nwofor (SC Heerenveen) and Reuben Gabriel (Waasland-Beveren). If the first one is a understandable choice (26 caps and 7 goals for CSKA) the three others are somewhat doubtful. Uche Nwofor despite scoring a situational goal for Nigeria that saved us the shame of defeat against Scotland (a defeat deserved becuse Nigeria played a really losy match) played 49 minutes for his side of SC Heerenveen this season. As we can presume he didn't score a single goal. Michael Uchebo, well he had a nice season and everything - he capped 30 times and scored five goals but... he plays for Cercle Brugge KSV, a middle-class team in Belgian top tier. There are dozens of players more suitable for the national team than a attacker who scores 0,16 goal per match! Reuben Gabriel noted five appearances in another Belgian mediocre Waasland Beveren. But don't be fooled he didn't play 450 minutes. He played 179 minutes and his only seasonal achievement was a red card against KAA Gent in a match lost 2-4. The players are linked with Tony Harris, maybe Ikechukwu Uche, Obafemi Martins and Chinedu Obasi should thank him for being so shamefuly omitted by Stephen Keshi, which does not erase the guilt from Keshi himself. If the team won't perform at the World Cup - Nigerians won't demand Keshi's sacking (which is already 90% a fact), they will demand Keshi's head.
