    Sadiq is seriously nocking at SE door. I heard is among or best strike in Serbian now.. if his lucky to transfer in any top5 European country, than more headache to coach rohr

  • Stan 1 year ago

    GR should invite this guy to replace onuachu he is far better than onuachu.

    • Dennis 1 year ago

      Actually it’s 17 goals and 17 assists. The Serbian league may not be highly rated but I think his stats are quite impressive. It wouldn’t be a bad idea for him to get an invite to the super eagles team. He should consider moving to maybe, the French league.

    17 goals and 16 assists is no joke. Sadiq deserves a call up to SE.

    • Peterside Udah 1 year ago

      It is no joke. This guy is doing well in Serbia. Good on him.

  • Gowetok 1 year ago

    I wana implore fans to go watch the video clips of seyi ojo.That guy is the missing link in SE attack .Great composure in front of goal.hardly misses a chance,and good long range shoting. He can play either from right or left but he is a left footer that will make chukwueze sit.He recently voiced out that he wana play for Nigeria ahead of England his country of birth. He was in the team that won junior world cup for England.He plays for liverpool but presently on loan at Rangers. If Rohr doesnt invite him at the earliest convinience , im done with SE.

    • Chairmanfemi 1 year ago

      You’d better be done with the Super Eagles o..lol just kidding cuz SHEYI OJO’s matter has been in CSN for years now and Coach Rohr and we @CSN are following him keenly.

      Now, go and check his records for Rangers this season. He started well though found scoring goals hard to come by and then dropped form drastically to the extent that when the real wingers at Rangers are off-form or are Injured, Coach Steven Gerard prefers to deploy our own JOE ARIBO to the Left/Right-wing than to play SHEYI OJO there. Yeah..his case is that bad. We hope he regains form as soon as possible. He is truly one to watch out for but you know the qualification to the present day Super Eagles, you must be on fire always at your club and not just any how club.

      As per keeping Chukwueze on his toes, we have loads of names to do that. Noah-Sarenren BAZEE, EJUKE, Moses Simon etc. Only Noah sef is enough to keep our wingers on there toes because that guy ehn! He is a war! He is a Fight! Lol.

      We can only wish Ojo well. His time will surely come

      Is it the same Seyi Ojo of Raangers or another one….? One would think you were writing about Arjen Robben or Frank Ribery.

    • Ugwudede 1 year ago

      Pls we need to be mindful of our choice of words when commenting on a social media platform like because these players also read the fans comments and we are human just like they are nit super humans. Our comments can either build the team ir tear it apart. Seyi Ojo is not the missing link because in the current super eagles set-up there is no missing link in the team if we must be honest to ourselves. I think we rather say that “Seyi Ojo will be a great addition to the team”. The boy is good no doubt

    @Gowetok…. New scout….

    Lower version of @OMO9JA.

    Group of discovering already discovered player…..

  • Dr. Drey 1 year ago

    With 17 goals and 17 assists in all competitions this season already, we are still looking for a space for him in the SE, yet some people are clamoring for automatic places for NPFL players who cannot walk straight into top 5 clubs in North African leagues. Lolz.

    Nepotism and false sense of entitlement will not kill us in Nigeria…?

    • Chairmanfemi 1 year ago

      “With 17 goals and 17 assists in all competitions this season already, we are still looking for a space for him in the SE” – Just imagine!

      Especially that last sentence “we’re still looking for a space for him”. Let’s keep hitting them hard with real points while they remain factless and keeps running away from direct questions. They are only good at raining insults. There Master in Insult-tology @Chima is really doing well

  • Goal ⚽️ 1 year ago

    A very big headache for coach Gernot Rohr….  we let him decide who gets invited and who not but we wouldn’t tolerate any excuses from him.

    We are so blessed with good players this days to the extend that we can dash our African neighbors players and still be okay.

    Right now any player that wants to play for super eagles should move to a bigger club that’s the only way he can distinguish himself from others.

  • Ub.F 1 year ago

    One thing that surprise me most is the fact that our top scorer in NPFL Can’t replicate that fate once he leaves 9JA,,,

    for the past 10years, AHMED MUSA is the only one that is still making waves as a former top scorer in npfl…

    Where are the rest????

    • Dr. Drey 1 year ago

      Hehehehe…you mean top scorers from manufactured penalties by referees for home teams..??? LMAO
      Akarandut Orok couldnt go beyond the Arab leagues so….he’s back in the NPFL now for a long while now
      Jude Aneke – same story – North Africa – Arabia and back to NPFL
      Victor Namo (whose 19 goals comprised of about 13 penalties) – Disappered in North Africa.
      Mfon Udoh – United states 2nd Div.
      Gbolahan Salami (so-called Balotelli of the NPFL) – 4 clubs in 4 years from Finland to Kazakhstan to Arabia.
      Okpotu – currently in libya
      Junior Lokosa – Released from Esperance de Tunis last month after about 10 games in 2 years. Im sure he’s probably coming back to the NPFL too like the rest.
      These are the ones I can recall….anybody who has more up-to-date info can share them.

      In 10 years, of all our league top scorers, only Ahmed Musa could make it to mainstream Europe…and he is still good enough to play in Europe today if he chooses to forgo the big bucks in Saudi. If some people can still not see that this league needs the intervention of our ancestors, then there is a bigger problem.
