    Chidera Ejuke should be invited to the SE team and drilled as our creative, attacking midfielder as he has the skill set to do well in that area with his dribbling and creative abilities. He is less effective in the wings were he has been suboptimal the few times he played for Super Eagles.

      I guess you didn’t watch the match last night cos if you did, you won’t be clamouring for him. I try to watch games Royal Antwerp week in week out because of the 4 Nigerians in the team Yusuf, 17 years old Ilenikhena, 19 Victor Udoh and Ejuke. Those 3 players first mentioned are the future of Super Eagles but it’s obvious Ejuke has past his prime, he has lost so many weapons in his arsenal, pace, tricky moves, killer pass and strength. All he need to do is to focus on how to make money for his retirement.
