    Weldone, Kelechi. 5goals and 2 assists in 6games is mouth watering statistics. With 2 MOM performance, yet he still finds game time hard to come by in Leicester city. I really think he needs to move on to where he will be given game time to explode. He is in a form of his life.

    Even with their 2 recent losses, Rogers did not see any reason to introduce him. And hauled him off just for a minor error that had no consequence in the match against Norwich. Yet he still delivers when called upon.

  • Man management is important. Kele is really rediscovering himself and he is improving with each game. We shouldn’t be too hard on the couch. If he wanted kele out he could have sanctioned it, but instead he kept him and he uses him from time to time. Give him time, as long as kele keeps performing when called on, the couch will have no option than to play him regularly.

    I did not watch the match but am happy for Kelechi latest form!

    Kelechi is being man managed. In 6 games he has scored 5 goal and provided two assists. if I’m not mistaken he has also won two penalties. He has gone from a player who seemed to have gone awol in the wilderness, to one who is ready when called upon. He will always score goals, just that he needs to be deployed correctly.

    Brendan Rogers is getting the best out of him, kept him sharp, given him focus and is putting him in positions where he is utilizing his strengths. He got a rare start because Jamie Vardy had a baby yesterday and he is also likely to start the next game before Jamie returns.

    What is left is for the Super eagles coach to look at what is working well and speak with Brendan so that he can give his best for both club and country.

    At this time we have strikers who are hot, coming back to form and who are hungry. A forward line up of Victor Osimhen, Cyriel Dessers, Kelechi Iheanacho, David Okereke, plus reserves (standby) of Olanrewaju Kayode and Junior Ajayi should be enough to get us through to the knock out stages of the world cup qualifiers in March.

    Long may they keep their form.

      Great analysis @Ikeben.

      …and some people expect all these 12 top strikers to have featured in the 4 matches we’ve played since AFCON.
      How that is possible in their eyes beats me.

      • Ikeben 1 year ago

        My brother, the competition to be Super Eagles top 9 is real and hot. Osimhen is the chosen one now but all around him are strikers banging in goals week in week out.

        I no envy Rohr, any one he choose people will complain why not the other. They clamored for Onuachu, but now we don’t want him again. And he can’t pick more than 4 in 22 and 2 in 11.

        But if am the coach, i will pick, Osimhen, Kelechi, Dessers and either of Sadiq or Simmy (for height instead of Onuachu).

        • Dr. Drey 1 year ago

          Ah, my brother, some people’s brains don’t work that way o. Every Jack and Harry that scores a goal in Europe must be called up and must play. And come the next match day, another set must be called up to prosecute the game. And then in 4 matchdays we would have featured 16 top9s as if it is PlayStation…! They that know more than the coach…Lolz
