    And the landlord of CSN forum and his group will tell us that the present set of SE players is not among the best in Africa. Osimhen: Lille player of yhe season & Best African player in France
    Simon: Nantes player of the season and best 11 of the decade.
    Desser: Dutsch league team of the year
    Ejuke: Dutch league team of the year.
    a an someone tell GR and Alloy that.
    Alampasu is back!!

    Present SE team is set-up to be the best in Africa. Next Afcon will decide.

      You’ve already contradicted yourself “Present SuperEagles team is set up to be the best in Africa” I don’t know if you understand that phrase “to be”…. We don’t need a soothsayer to tell us that there’s immense potentials in this exciting team assembled by Rohr. A team most of you tenants on CSN never expected to be this good in the first place. All thanks to Rohr for assembling this team with great potentials. #FLY LIKE AN EAGLE INTO THE FUTURE#

  • Dr. Drey 1 year ago

    Hehehehe….Nicolas Pépé (Ivory Coast) won the MVF award in 2019, Ivorians did not claim CIV has the BEST PLAYERS IN AFRICA….. Karl Toko-Ekambi (now team mates with Chukwueze in Villareal) won the award in 2018, cameroonians did not go boasting that they have the BEST PLAYERS IN AFRICA…..Jean Michaël Seri (Ivory Coast) won this award in 2018, CIV fans didnt go around telling everyone they NO TEAM IN AFRICA IS AS GOOD AS theirs….Osimhen has 1 good season for both club and country and all of a sudden CSN scavengers boast that the SE is the BEST TEAM/HAS THE BEST PLAYERS IN AFRICA…LMAO.
    I wonder what Senegalese fans will be saying now with their players winning the league in 2 out of top 5 leagues in the world and many others finishing in top 4 for their clubs…..LMAO.

    Like We the landlords will always say….WE ARE NOT THERE YET, BUT WE ARE GETTING THERE….!!!

    • Ugwudede 1 year ago

      I don’t think you read the analysis because the focus wasn’t only on Osimehen but the entire team perfomance in their various clubs in various leagues in Europe. I am of the same opinion that this the time we can the praise of the team

  • Omo9ja 1 year ago

    Congratulations. I’m so happy for you Osimeh. Keep it up and never relent. Age is just a number.

    I hope Mr. Rohr have learnt his lesson for putting you on the bench at the Afcon in Egypt.

    I hope such a thing won’t happen again. God bless Nigeria!!!

    • Chris 1 year ago

      Thank God GR did not use Osimhen in the last Afcon, Thank God Kanu was not used in USA 94 world cup team, I can go on and on to let you know others like this who we have to thank God they learned with the big boys being among them.

      See, my brother when you play a rookie too early (who is supposed to crawl, stand, walk before running) you are simply playing with the 99% possibility of damaging the future of such player.

      In a situation where a rookie make (a rookie) mistake, lets say, gives that wrong pass to an opponent that led to a goal against us, or he scores an own goal or he fails to square a pass and missed a great goal opportunity for the team; you in particular will be among the other well meaning die hard Super Eagles fans will ask GR why he played Osimhen. I can’t imagine the kind of lashing you will belt on Osimhen eventually and of course that will be the end of his future as our future top player.

      Brother, lets thank God the young man was used WHEN HE PROVED HIMSELF READY. Even then when he played his first match for Nigeria, did you notice that his mistakes where quickly forgiven because we know what we want to acheive by letting him build his confidence with the main team. Lets thank GR for that wisdom of man management.

      • Congrats Oshimeh I Hope U Continue Like This And SE Players As Well Becos Constitency Is What Mater D Most Sooner SE Will Become A Force To Reckon In Africa & D World, Let All Those Saying Dat Super Eagle Players Are Average Hide Their Head In Shame

      • Abdul 1 year ago

        Thanks man! Well said.

      • Ayphillydegreat 1 year ago

        You can say that all over again my brother. I implore you to wait for the day Osimhen uncharacteristically performs below par in an important match or even a friendly for the SuperEagles you will see how ọmọ9ja will crucify him. You will read all sort of chief Zebrudaya grammar that day. LMAO!! I hope Osimhen continue to keep him mute. 

      • Dr. Drey 1 year ago

        Cant be better said my brother. Remind him also that a certain young Ronaldo de Lima was taken to the USA 94 world cup but didnt even touch the ball throughout. His talent was nurtured carefully and not rushed. 2 years later same Ronaldo single-handedly wrecked our team dream team 2ce and if not for the tactical blunder by Mario Zagallo who subbed him too early when they were leading 3-1 in the semifinals, we probably wouldnt have made it to the olympic gold till today. He was unleashed at the next Copa america after that and at the 1997 FIFA confederations cup. By france 98 he fired brazil all the way to the finals. The rest they say is history. Going into the Afcon, Osimhen had played 4 matches for the SE with not a single shot on target, even in the match against Tunisia where he eventually featured, he didnt have any shot on target, even after AFCON, it still took him another 4 games to get his 1st goal from open play in a SE shirt…that about 8 games in total. But in the eyes of this agege and ajegunle coach, he should have been played ahead of Ighalo who was top scorer in the qualifiers and in the main tournament itself…..LMAO. Just has you have rightly said, if the same Rohr had played Osimhen ahead of his Onuachu (a massive flop who could not control balls in all the matches he played) whom he “discovered and recommended to Rohr over a decade ago”…Lolz, he’s the same one who will come here to wail and question the reason why Onuachu was not featured.
