    Honourable mentions are Lookman, Balogun, Onyedika and Dessers. Can someone check the highlight btw Bologna and Udinese and see if Okoye can be trusted with long distance shot judging by the weird goal he conceded in that match??? Boy is still error prone and has to continue working on himself before we can start celebrating or hyping him for a recall. The goal was just a gift pack that messed up everything and reminds me of his old self.
