    … The guy Azubuike Okechukwu, to me offers more compared to Mikel Agu. Left for me I think Azu should already be part of the Super Eagles.

    If not for injury, I strongly feel this dynamite would have gotten a chance to test his explosive capabilities against Tunisia and Algeria. Azu will get his chance soon.

  • His height is probably a major minus especially considering Germans loathe short players.

    • JimmyBall 4 years ago

      … Is he shorter than Ramon Azeez? He is probably taller than Messi or Maradona and yet height did not stop those ones!
