    Meanwhile, Good news coming from Portugal!
    TYRONNE EBUEHI played for 73 minutes before being replaced in Benfica B 2-2 draw against Sporting Covilha. The Dazzler is back!

    Simy Nwankwo should please be called ahead of Paul Onuachu in our forthcoming matches. The guy is good, strong, fast unlike that Lazy Onuachu

    strickers are many .let the coach invite whoever fits his game plan.Meanwhile ,i support dropping onuachu; he is not the best backup for Osigoal machine when we have cyriel dessers, simmy Nwankwo,David Okereke,Kayode, Nwakweme,Aminu umar etc. Moreso ,he is too slow.
