Messi And Ronaldo Omitted From UEFA Men’s POTY Nominations

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been omitted from the nominations for the UEFA Men's Player of the Year awards. For the first time in 10 years, the two greatest players of the modern game do not appear on the shortlist for the awards, for which Kevin De Bruyne and Robert Lewandowski are considered favourites to win.

Burna Boy Seemingly Shades Davido over Greatest Singer Post’

Burna Boy made a suggestive post on social media, as he seemingly threw a shade at Davido over his ‘greatest singer of all time’ post. Taking to Twitter earlier this afternoon, Davido wrote that he and Wizkid are the greatest Nigerian singers of all time. He wrote; “The 2 greatest of all time ! No Billed cap” In reaction to his post, many fans were quick to point out that Davido omitted Burna Boy – who had earlier referred to himself as the best. Not quite long after Davido made his post, Burna Boy took to Instagram to make a post of his, that suggested he was throwing a shade. Burna wrote on his Insta stories; ‘you cannot play football, everybody knows you cannot play football and you are an embarrassment to the team But your daddy bought the football team. “ T...

Mikel Obi Finally Breaks Silence After Being Omitted From Super Eagles Squad

Super Eagles captain John Obi Mikel has stated that he remains fully committed to the national team and will make himself available for selection once he sorts out his ‘physical and fitness issues’. The Tianjin TEDA midfield maestro, who has not been in action for Nigeria since the World Cup in June, emphasised that he will keep supporting the Eagles as they look to seal their place in the 2019 AFCON billed for Cameroon. “I’m still not ready to come back yet. Still have some physical and fitness issues. I wish the team well and will always do. “My commitment to the national team remains 100%; I still remain a part of the team and will always support the lads. The Nations Cup remains our ultimate goal for now and we are just one point away from reaching that target,” Mikel told...
