    Ndi Chukwueze is a poor player. Ngwa Chukwueze should be excluded from the Super Eagles. See your life. Chukwueze is far better than all other Super Eagles wingers. If hatred is Naira you people will be billionaires. Shaking my arse.

      Kindly list Chukwueze’s goals and assists for the Super Eagles in the past 4 years. Stats don’t lie. Chukwueze has been very poor for club and country.

        Chukwueze is far better than Ademola Lookman and Moses Simon combined. You can take it to the insurance company.

        • wow!!! all the players are good, but, we have some that are exceptional….their off days are not very pronouncedbut, i disagree with you that Chukwu is better than Ademola lolz… His off days is more than is day on duty…but, the moment he gets it right…he will keep flying…you can expect him to start flying from now on….BUT, HE’S NOT BETTER THAN ADEMOLA…

          • In as much as Ademola Lookman is great If people care too remember I was one of his Biggest Advocates when the switch was dragging with Pinnick cabinet Infact One Thing I know we lost wit Pinnick is that Drive to get players to switch if you all will care to admit it is in Pinnick Regime that we saw alot of dual national Talents from Europe Switching allegience the guy was passionate about it.

            But yes back to the point Lookman is Awesome and has tapped into his potential which CHukwueze is yet too, Interms of potential I believe Chukwueze has as much potential as lookman did before he tapped into his maybe, even more. Chuks just needs to tap into his and realise just one thing only one that, assists are just as important as goals. if he can do that and become more consistant as the assists rack up for sure the goals will follow and he will be mrore devastating than Lookman is currently

          • @Tod and @Alex07 why? because, Chukwueze is stronger and faster in full flight than lookman is,

            1 more thing he Chuks must stop being the joker of camp and become more focused and Confident in the final third

  • @Akanlo Ede Dont Mind dem, They are always quick to write off our young potentials yet because someone played well 20 years ago they must be wearing the Captains armband until Kingdom come. Nawa for our pepoo..

    If you tell them Chukwueze came good just before the recent International breakdem no go hear word, why?.. BEcause they do not follow ball only skewed Nigerian media that are bias Quota system ridden and quite honestly amateur journalism

      @Ugo nobody comes close to you in analysis of football. You too sabi.

      My question to you is, how will you rate Chukwueze’s performance in the last 5 games for the super eagles, compare this to that of Lookman and Moses Simon. Chukwueze has got very great potentials, he is not just living up to that for the SE. Stats don’t lie, moreso, our eyes can’t be deceiving us. Check his rating for the Nigeria in his last 5 games…very average 

      • Dr. Drey 2 weeks ago

        Last 5 games you say….LMAOoo?? He should tell us how well Chukwueze has fared in SE colours in the last 3 years….LMAOoo

        The last good game worthy of a MOTM performance his tin-god played for the SE was the AFCON qualifier vs Sierra Leone in Benin in November 2020.

        Then he opens his big mouth filled with meth and tar-darkened teeth to claim “…they are always quick to write off our young potentials…”

        As far as the SE is concerned, Chukwueze is still living on the old glory of his first seasons in Spain when he made mince meat out of the likes of Pique and Ramos. At that time the likes of Saka and Foden wouldn’t even dare lace his boots.

        Now he’s delivering 1 goal + 1 assist in a season and the cheap bigot wants us to fall at his feet and worship him…LMAOoo

        • Why most of us are very careful not to talk with our full month…baba just enter room say it the way it is…i agree with you sir…i wish Chukwueze can just be consistent…and stop some useless driblling and selfishness these are what make players very good…If he’s that good, all our last two or 3 coaches wouldnt leave him on the bench

    Congrats to OTU UKWU for his display against Fiorentina. The CHRONIC LEFTY has done well.
    Hope he is spending some extra time after training working on the use if his right foot. Work on accurate shooting and crosses, and learn how to take freekicks. These are the things that will raise his profile and make him more valuable.
    If Otu ukwu fails to improve his game, we may have to refer him to Dr. Koyemi Oderinde. Perhaps he can assist him.
