Alex is an emo. No other way to explain his failures at the highest level. Never a favorite within BCB's Old Boys Network including at least 2 of our 3 national selectors since the Faruk-Koko dynasty, maybe he didn't get the run perhaps less deserving players had. But that sort of "injustice" doesn't mitigate the fact that he failed to take advantage of the chances he was given. Maybe he's not psychologically cut-out to sustain success at the highest level like most of our players.
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
