    BAD COACH ARIBO SHOULD BE ON THE BENCH FRANK ONYEKA SHOULD BE ON THE LIKE

    SIMON SHOULD BE ON THE BENCH AWONEYNI SHOULD HAVE BE IN LINE UP WITH OSIHEME

      An away game that needs more bodies in the midfield,yet you are calling on the coach to start two top strikers and de-emphasise the midfield?Are you kidding me?
      Well it’s all good you’re not the coach,the starting lineup is good I would somewhat agree to your opinion of Onyeka starting ahead of Aribo other than that we can’t ask for a better lineup for this duel.

    My assessment: Ndidi can’t hold ball for 2 seconds without panicking, Osayi is loosing possession too much, Aribo presence is not felt by the opposition, he needs to do better, Simon and Chukwueze need to learn how to convert chances, sometimes the only match chances may come to their foots and we fans won’t take it easy on them. So far, I think we are playing better.. Good luck to super eagles
