    I hope he improve in his play because of the demand for a finisher in the national team is getting heated now since Ighalo has decided to Quit the team. And also he needs to work harder so that he can make it to the Liverpool team. I wish him the best

    Awo is one of the few central forward SE can count on. Good luck.

    • Awoniyi was in the under 23 squad that struggled against Libya. He was shunted to the bench and Osimhen drafted in (amongst others) to assist that team. The result? Osimhen hat trick Okereke one goal.
      Taiwo did well at Mouscron safer struggling at Gent in the early part of last season. I’m hoping that he does well at Mainz and that he is able to consolidate his place in the under 23 squad.

      Has he blown “hot and cold” in his career or is it that he requires “optimum situations” to thrive in football?

      This his serving stint in the German football League. He’s replacing Anthony Ujah who had left Mainz for Union Berlin, I hope he does well (I’ve said that more than once).

      The strikers in the Golden Eaglets class of 2013 Taiwo, Isaac And Kelechi need to step up if they are to remain relevant to our national teams.

      The class of 2015 Osimhen, Chukwueze and to others Okereke look to have over taken them and the likes of Stephen Odey are knocking also
