The new arrivals will take part in Wednesday’s training session which is billed to start at 5pm.

The quintet of Victor Osimhen, Daniel Akpeyi, Kevin Akpoguma, Semi Ajayi, Shehu Abdullahi and Jamilu Collins are expected in camp later on Wednesday.

The Super Eagles take on the Leone Stars at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City on Friday, November 13 before flying to Freetown for the return game on Tuesday, November 17 at the Siaka Stevens Stadium.

Victory in both encounters will all but guarantee Nigeria a slot at the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations finals holding in Cameroon.

  • Osimhen still not in camp. I’ll not be surprised if he doesn’t make the starting line up. He might come in around 50th or 60th minutes. Ihenacho might be rewarded for his heroics based in our last friendly match.
    Osimhen will start our away match against same team though.

      Presently going by goal form, Iheanacho is the most in form player among the two of them.

    What type of conflicting report is this. Kevin Akpoguma is in the list of those in camp and also in the list of those yet to arrive

    Presently going by goal scoring form, Iheanacho is the most in form player among the two of them.

     
  • Osimhen Has just Landed in Naija Super Eagles Carry Go!!!

     
  • If Osimhen makes it to the camp today why will he start from the bench? we need him in the starting line up, all our best hands must on deck to ensure victory.

      Is Osimhen better than Iheanacho?

          What’s funny about the question?Both players are very good.

          Osimhen has better market value agreed but it’s not clear who among the two is a better player I believe in my opinion time will tell.

          Mind you Osimhen did well in the French league but yet to prove his mettle in a better league like the Italian serie A where he currently plies his trade as well the super eagles.Both are world cup winners at youth level while Osimhen was accorded the top scorer award,Iheanacho the golden ball.

          Nacho has proved himself in a better league as well the super eagles but Osimhen is yet unproven at both levels,though he has shown flashes of better things to come.

           
      • Oga what type of question are you asking this question is like asking if @omonaija is better [email protected] drey just said my mind,

         
        • Greenturf 3 weeks ago

          Well Omo9ja and Dr. Drey are both amazing individuals both are special in different ways

            Greenturf the diplomat! Hehehehe! You sabi diplomacy, no be small.
            Agreed, Osi9 and Nacho are both in top form now. Osi9 will likely start, if push comes to shove. However, the option of playing both of them together is also there.

             
  • You should be the one to answer the question. Osimhen and Iheanacho are incomparable. The two players are miles apart. No disrespect to Iheanacho, he’s very talented and he possessed all the tenacities needed to be a great player, he’s been underutilised at Leicester and he need to be playing week in week out for him to even stand a chance to be mentioned in the same bracket as his compatriot

    @greenturf, if i answer you finish you will still come and disagree with me, osihmen is ahead of iheanacho in attack and also in all round play, at list at the moment in the past 3 years. I watch osime last match mehn that guy is not just a striker he is technicaly gifted and he hardly put the wrong foot on the ball in all is 80 min play. I have watched maja, simi and iheanacho, i am sorry non of them can compete with osimeh for now, the guy is nothing but a BOMB thats why they bought him for 70 mil,. But i am a big fan of kelechi too, i think he still need to develop his self to be a complete striker, you know the guy was not naturaly a top 9, thats why he still struggles in that position, and i personaly cant fault him, these change of character have also affected his skills as he havnt been playmaking like his early stages. I still think iheanacho is 8 or 7, he may not be as fast as chukueze but i think his precision and intelligence will make him become another ziyach or mahrez for both club and country if he switch back to his natural position

     
  • What’s with all the Iheancho song of late here? I don’t rate Iheanacho a lot, especially after the match against SA in Uyo where we lost 0-2 and he was practically missing on the field. Someone that could not make the last Afcon – and rightly so – cos of his laidback attitude to professional development. Someone that Rohr openly criticised for being ineffective and a minus one in the Russia 2018 match against Croatia. I laugh when people say Rodgers is often benching him for reasons other than footballing reasons. That’s like taking sentiments over the bar. That someone is our own and “we should encourage him” doesn’t mean being blind to the truth. If I read Rohr’s mind well, Iheanacho is still a fringe player until he fully proves himself. In my estimation (I suspect the same for the SE crew), there should be one or 2 strikers between Osimhen and Kelechi.

    Osimhen is the best striker we have at the moment. That his parents hail from Benin has NOTHING to do with it. The lad was born and raised in Lagos, so Lagosians also feel connected to him. Osimhen is the best because of what he can do on the pitch, and how hard he works to stay consistent.
    Let’s cast aside tribalistic, racist sentiments. If someone is good, they are good, no matter where they come from. Me personally, I don’t give a damn where a player comes from. As long as he/she is from somewhere in Nigeria, and they are the best we have, they have my support. I don’t care if all the 24 invited players are from one tribe. As long as they are there on merit, carry go! The alternative is what I can’t stand. Having players in camp based on nepotism or na my person, man know man things. Or players bribing their way into camp. We have suffered enough in the past because of this kind of things. You see a player in our jersey who can’t even trap a ball properly, has no stamina, poor technique, and you begin to wonder how this player ever became a pro footballer, not to talk of meriting an invite to the Nigeria national team! We can’t afford that anymore going forward. Only the best will do, no matter where they hail from.
