    I’ll suggest Gernot Rohr starts Semi Ajayi and Ekong/Balogun against Libya. That guy is just a beast in defence. He was the one who rescued Rotherham against Stoke. Stoke City should have won that game by 4-2 but He(Ajayi) kept Saido Berahino and Benick Afobe at bay throughout the game. Berahino left the game with total frustration written all over his face when he was substituted. No thanks to Semi Ajayi. I will like to give kudos to the scouting team of the Super Eagles cuz of a job well-done in discovering Semi Ajayi. He might be playing in the EFL but I believe his invitation to the Super Eagles will bluster his career just as it has done to Ekong and Balogun’s career. With Semi Ajayi, I believe we have a future in the Eagles defence. Imagine a future defence line of Semi Ajayi, Ekong, Stephen Eze, Awaziem, Ebuehi, the German Deji(LB) etc.

    Defence is OK. What the Eagles desperately need is a proven Goal SCORER.IGALO MAY BE Scoring In China but his goal score and assist record for the Eagles is too poor to be relied upon.
