    NFF should get Lookman and Adaraboiye, this guys are good players, world cup is coming very fast, lets cap tied many players now before world cup qualifers and world itself

  • Bright 3 years ago

    I think this Ada of a guy is out of this world, very composed n versertile rock of Gibraltar.. Kindly initiate his process of change of allegiance to nigeria.

    • This guys have already pledge allegiance to Nigeria,just waiting on fifa

  • Fulham may still avoid relegation this season if they get their acts together and play to their strength. I cant say the same about west brom. Good to see the Nigerian interest being active in their fight though.

  • It Will be nice if lookman replaces Ahmed musa in the Super Eagles starting eleven. His ability to create and score goals will be very useful

    Lookman is capable to beat any defender on 1-on-1 anytime anyday… Adarabioyo is a very intelligent defender with the whole world at his feet and I believe that Fulham is still a steppingstone in his football career. He is very assured with his tacckles, good with the ball at his feet. He knows how to turn defense into attack with his good passing abilities. Nigeria needs his services as a potential longtime replacement for Balogun…

    Calvin Bassey of rangers too is another rookie knocking the super eagles door! That guy is a beast and a very good deputy to Sanusi M. Zaidu of FC Porto. Bassey is the reason barisic is on his toes this season. He along with zaidu are the super eagles longtime assured modern-day left back for many years to come.

    My article will not be completed if I fail to mention this guy called Michael Akpovie Olise of READING FC. That guy is the natural no.10 the super eagles aficionados have been seeking for. I hope and pray he accepts wholeheartedly to come play for the super eagles.

    I was wowed when checked his strengths on YouTube. That guy passes better than the great fabregas at his age. His major strength is the ability to pinpoint teammate of his choice at will with the ball. He crosses very well, his defensive attributes are top-notch also. He can always shoot and score from around 25-30yrds. If the super will dazzle again comes 2022world cup in Qatar then, Olise is one of the reasons if picked Nigeria ahead of France and England..

    I look forward to the inclusion of Adarabioyo and Calvin Bassey in our defense set up.i look forward to the inclusion of Olise and Ejaria in our midfield setup and I also look forward to the inclusion of Lookman in our wing-forward as it tends to make the likes of chukwueze, kalu and Ejuke always play with purpose and not showboating…

    Give peace if you want peace.

    • I agree with your analysis 100%. Olise is a fine talent with amazing football talent, like Ovie Ejaria who I’ve always admired for his supreme football techniques: ability to pick out his teammates with exquisite passes and his eye for goals. Observing young Michael Olise’s budding talent, I can help but wish for to join the Nigeria SE. What a glut of quality we’ve out there in the English championship. The exciting performances of Nigerian prospects, Adarabioyo and Lookman with premiership side Fulham are heartwarming. Both who have indicated interest in playing for the SE of Nigeria have grown to be the mainstay of the Fulham side so far this season. Lookman is just a marvel to watch with darting movement on the ball, he’s got the quick movement, brilliant dribbling skills on a one-on-one situation and his ability to hit the ball with great venom outside the box is highly commendable. Tosin Adarabioyo’s dominant displays at the back line for Fulham are quite extraordinary. He’s been for them a rock, dominant in the air and on the ground. I’m sure Fulham is a stepping stone for him. Like Balogun he would be a calming influence in the Super Eagles defence set up with Akpoguma. Ademola Lookman will certainly be a great addition to the Super Eagles set up.

  • This people, what about the quota for MPLF players? 

    • Ikeben 3 years ago

      Quota my foot, let the league be functional first, then let the local eagles win the CHAN tournament and also start playing in the CAF champions league final, then we can see if 1 or 2 exceptionally good ones can fight for a place. This is not politics, were zonning or federal character we become the yardstick to pick players. Forward ever, backward never.

    @sean biko don’t kill person, lolz!!
    Remind all of them about the quota system ooo. It is only in Nigeria progress is viewed as abomination. Lol!
    See how we are just naming players up and down. Olise here, bassey there. Invite Sadiq, invite lookman. Lolz
    Four home-based, haba! A league that even when it was functional it was not even among the top ten in Africa. But now Nigeria league has not kicked a single ball for over 8 months, I just wonder how bad the league has become.
    But of course, it’s all Rohr’s fault. Lolz
    I’ve said it before, I will repeat it: call Mourinho, employ Guardiola, super eagles will still have the same problem – nff and their hilarious administration.
    May God help us.

    Michael olise and Ovie ejaria are quality!
    Michael has a predator instinct the very moment he enters the 18 yard box. Ejaria case is something else. Last season and this season shows that ejaria is not the best when it comes to goal contribution. However, ejaria is second to none (at least in the championship) when overall match performance is involved. Ejaria is our own version of Toni Kroos. Dribbling – check; passing – check; technicality – over check; energy – check. I’ve never seen ejaria hesitate when he’s on the ball. I will take ejaria over kelechi nwakali a thousand times! How I wish kelechi nwakali still have the form he showed during the u-17 days.
    Our midfield has beefed up: iwobinho takes the no10, probably unrivaled. Iwobi quality of well timed passes was top notch against chelsea. Include his workrate and excellent vision and you have iniesta in an African skin. If the rumors are true about olise switch of allegiance, then it’s manner from heaven for us. Michael olise becomes the second choice. Though I fear for his physicality especially since it is African countries he will mostly face.
    For the CM, Joe ariball and Ovie ejaria battle this spot. While ndidi the mobile wall, and etebo the engine take the DCM position. While Ndidi is obviously ahead of etebo, the difference in their style of play is imperative. Etebo will be our deep anchor man, orchestrating attack from our own half. This will come in handy against weaker opponents and when we are pushing for a win early in the first half.
    But if this quota system is really serious, we will have to drop olise and etebo for their respective positions. We will of course have cap tied olise first. (Dare will not kill person).
    Super eagles all the way!
