  • Ejuke has started off on the right foot for CSKA Moscow. Show them you’ve got more than dribbling in your skill set.

    I wanna see you strutting your stuff in an even bigger league soonest.

    Nigeria has now got a glut of talents and we can’t but make this count by winning the AFCON severally and getting to atleast the final of the world cup before this present crop ease off.

    nice one boys(onyekuru and ejuke)he sure for una! keep on working hard. ejuke osihmen and chukwueze,should start cotedvoir match, abeg he sure for these three guys, at list for now. in absent of aribo and iwobi(not being in form) i will recomend a solid deep 4 4 2 formation for gernot rohr against cotedvoir. osimen and chukwueze in the attack allowing chukwueze to rove freely around also becos both of them have good understanding
    my midfield should start ejuke from the left wing, then nwakali and ndidi in the middle while kalu starts from the right wing, this four guys have strong artitude to defend and attack. then zaidu, balogun, ekong and aina will mount the deffence line. maduka in my goal post. the reason i picked nwankali ahead of azeez and etebo is to build his confidents with the team as it is a friendly match. the due can come in the second half. we are not sure of ejiara as for now, so we cant rely on his service. i will bring in iheanacho and dessers to replace osihmen and chukueze in the second half regardless of the scoreline. moses simon to replace ejuke while ehizibue comes in for aina. and ebuehi to replace kalu in 20 minutes to go, the reunion of nwakali osihmen and chukueze will be disastrouse to cotedevoir in addition to the magics of ejuke and kalu.?

      Thanks bro, I like the 2 forward idea, with chukwueze supporting osimen upfront we are sure to score goals aplenty. SE should start being on the front foot from the blast of the whistle instead of always reacting to what the opposition throws at us. We have athletic and fast individuals in this team and I blif we can put pressure on teams (especially within the continental africa). I blif we have the team to play the high press game and force teams to make mistakes and punish them when they do. Rhor as much as i love him needs to be a little bit bolder and inspire our boys to play without fear regardless of who the opponent is and always be on the front foot. The one prayer i have is for someone to tell our players like chukwueze, ejuke, kalu, ndidi, aribo, sharia etc to work on freekicks, that’s another way to be indispensable in a team. They should be advised to practice practice and practice freekicks, can u imagine that no SE player is a freekick or penalty taker for their team, it’s really sad. Some ser piece are like goals. Nobody or team will let u kick freekick if u dont show in training that u can convert them or at least hit the target. Our players should start taking responsibility. William is taking freekicks for arsenal cos everyone knows he can do the job even tho he just recently arrived in Arsenal. Just imagine if chukwueze adds freekick to his game, do u know what his market value would be?
      As an aside, Iwobi is in trouble ooo, deo myself and many others have said it many times that he particularly needs to add scoring to his game, there is no doubt he is talented but using the excuse dat he is playing to instruction of the coach as a reason for not scoring is laughable as no coach will be upset if u score a few goals for the team while doing your job.
      Our defenders need to start taking advantage of corners and set pieces as our goal return from our defenders is really poor to be honest. if my memory serves me correctly I think of all our defenders only ekong has scored a goal (i stand to be corrected) compared that to Sergio Ramos that’s in double digit each season as well as in national team. Just my opinion

    @Collins, keep ur recommendation s jare. Are u d coach of d SE? So u are a fan of d SE, Yes! You know all d Nigerian players plying their trade abroad, Yes! So?? How many times did u collect marker from ur lecturers in d university to help them summarize their lectures?? I too sabi, joor don’t be a fanatic…

  • Good one Ejuke, your doing well! If uche kalu messes up your next in line.
    I see an attack trio of ejuke, osimhen and iheanacho. Midfield of ndidi, iwobi, mikel agu. Defense of zaidu, ajayi, ekong and ehizibue. Goal keeper can be anyone. With a lot of quality substitutes. Looking good for super eagles. Keep up the good work.
    Still advocating for obinna nwobodo, hopefully his time will come.

  • I’m still wondering everyone is saying Ejuke did so well..pls dis you watch the match…try analysing it before conclusion.. Let’s forget about the goal he score.. Try to tell me what he did in is 8introduction
