    Akpom Pazzer Mazzer. Akpom Pazzer Mazzer… You are destined for greatness with Nigeria. You are far better than most other Super Eagles strikers. Come and score goals aplenty for Nigeria.
    Heaven bless Akpom and all deserving Super Eagles players.

  • @ Ignatius. What are you talking about. Keep in mind that akon is playing in the lower league. Second division for that Matter.lf he really wants to prove himself that he’s better than the strikers that we have in the current super eagles then he needs to be playing in the premier league and be scoring goals week in and week out. Other than that, I’m not impressed with akpom at this point. Personally, playing in the 2nd division is not cutting it…

    Osimhen just banged in 2 goals …. Honestly the next African footballer of the year is between him and ziyech and Hakimi…..There’s no other hotter African in the top 5 leagues right now…
