    Awesome game to goal ratio ratio. Unfortunately , cannot replicate same for country. What a shame

    Until Paul goes to the likes of Italian Serie A, German Bundesliga, EPL or even La Liga and be able to score the same amount of goals is when I will believe he is a prolific poacher and not over hyped by the Media even Peter Olayinka in Slavia Prague is a better Poacher than he Onuachu despite being a winger I watched him played severally and I don’t see anything special about him so he should go to a very stronger league and stop fooling the media with cheap goals just a submission and if you must criticise please do constructively

      You have a point, we have witnessed Peter Ijeh, Tosin dosunmu and these bracket of players score tons of goals and only come to SE to flop. I won’t say Onuachu is a weak striker but I rather believe a better league will help take his game to the next level by this way he will excel in the Super Eagles. For now let him enjoy the golazo.

        God bless Onuachu but truth is, he is majorly a 6 yard goal demon in same bracket as Peter Ijeh, Jonathan Akpoboririe, Richard Owobukiri, Joseph Akpala etc. but unfortunately 6 yards goal machines struggle a lot at national team Football, where defenders are really economical with free space. If only Onuachu can bring back replica of the long range goal against Egypt on his debut , then no one n I repeat no one will be benching him. Goals from outside the box, is what put Osimene heads n shoulder s above the rest. Only Sadiq, Nacho n DESSERS when in form comes closest. 6 yards goal demons don’t sell fast/ well in the market hence could be reason why despite Onuachu’s very good goals to game ratio, the big teams are not really showing any interest.
