    In the absence of Haaland I don’t see anyone stopping Awoniyi that is not to downplay the efforts of the other guys.

    Awo is a big deal by any measurement. With a player like Awo, Nigeria will be very competitive not only AFCON but also in World Cup qualifying series. Take Osimhen, Orbam, Boniface, Samu, and so on for instant.
    With an average coach like this Portugues guy, Nigeria is highly expected to do very well in our various matches from now thereon.
