      @Collins Id. You are right there. Those are the quality strikers that would strike fears into our adversaries in AFCON NEXT YEAR. I think they are the best we have at the moment.

  • Fantastic play by Nathan Tella on the right wing and Victor Boniface for Bayer Leverkusen as they trashed Quarabag in this Europa cup game. Nathan Tella was simply amazing with his brilliant and powerful runs on the right flank and midfield and was unlucky not to have been amongst the goal scorers. I think coach Peseiro and the NFF should consider inviting Nathan tella to fight for a place in the Super Eagles for the World Cup qualifiers and the AFCON team. Nathan Tella and Vicor Boniface are both fantastic attackers.

      I concur with you. Ema. Tella in my view is a modern day winger. Fast, technically adept at picking the right time to deliver crosses and have cardio fitness to track back to support the defence. These qualities are missing in Chukwueze games at the moment. He needs proper competition to step up his game or give way to Tella in my opinion.
