    Keep firing Awoniyi and don’t stop scoring goals.

    We want to be hearing good news like this from our sport ambassadors.

    With more effort to put ball in the net always, it will end up attracting bigger clubs to come looking for you, and your place in the national team will be bright.

    The likes of Awoniyi, and the rest U17 squads of 2013 and 2015, majority will form the future SE.

    But first, we want to see them improved and play in good clubs.

    What a sweet relief for Awoniyi. I for one felt his move to Gent was a step up after a commendable spell at REM last season….but if front nor gree for go…back suppose gree for return…!
    And for Anderson Esiti….week in week out this guy is always strutting his stuff at Gent and no one seems to be mentioning his name.

    Just stumbled on this clip.
    We actually had our own C.Ronaldo before there ever was a C.Ronaldo. No wonder Mr ‘Mathematical’ was once a ‘wearer’ the AFOTY crown

    Good for Awoniyi, keep fighting hard, we know very soon you will shine very bright. Kalu is really performing week in week out for his club. Honestly the competition for places in Super Eagles is getting fiercer, which is very good. Based on current form, I propose this squad will be a force is AfCON.


    Shehu/Ebuehi, Ajayi,Balagun,Ogu

    Except Kelechi and even Success really dramatically improves their conversion rates, i expect them to be dropped for AFCON. But I know Rohr will never drop Kelechi. Shehu and Ebuehi have been have injury issues lately, I think the fitter of both is good enough. Odey deserves his call up by now, but Rohr will rather call Osimen I know. (purely my views)But lets watch and see.
