    This is what i said yesterday about Uche. This guy is needed and it is rare to find such a player of his class in a team like Super Eagles. No doubt, Ike Uche will add his experience to the team. Please Complete sports, get coach Rohr informed about this guy. Rohr can give him an opportunity to play against Algeria. The combination of Ike Uche, Ogu, Onyekuru, Ogenagaro, Bazee, Dessers and Ogu’s teammate at his club side, I couldn’t remember his name but these are the players should be use if they are at their best against Algeria and friendly matches. We needed 3 to five experience players such as Mikel, Enyeama, and Ike Uche will make the team balance. I am not canpaign for any player but we must start the preparation for the world cup as soon as possible and we need all our best players both experience and the young ones. It’s left to coach Rohr to choose the best players for our nation. God bless Nigeria!!!

    Rashidi yekini and agali are the greatest strikers and can back Ighalo up.

  • Thanks Lambert may be we should call yakubu, odemwengie, utaka and aghahowa too.we need there experience too..since we don’t want to move forward again.

      True bro the reason we need Yekini,yakubu, odemwengie, utaka and aghahowa.

    Call who back? Aba!!! His time has gone and we have a whole lot of strikers that can help going forward and not the 33 years old IK. He has done his bit for Nigeria and gave way for the new blood. Onyekuru bagged a brace yesterday and that’s the kind of players we should be begging Rhor to test against Algeria. There are young strikers yet to be tested by the coach; Nwakaeme Anthony, Kayode Ajayi etc. We should be talking about discovering talents and not going back to our heroes who have contributed their quota and moved on. We should see the way Germany and Spain are injecting new blood into their squad and emulate such transition rather than getting over excited when our old heroes find the net once in a while and be dreaming of their recall.

  • Can someone tell me how many goals he has scored so far and how frequent? Remember he is playing for a team in the 2nd division in Spain. This club, what are their position on their table. Nigerians should know that Complete Sports is only informing the public of the performances of our players all over the world. They are not canvassing for any player to be invited. Be assured that the NFF and the coaches are keenly following up the progress of all our players anywhere in the world even as far as India, Iceland, Indonesia and Singapore. Anywhere. We have an oyibo coach that cannot be bribed. It is not their culture. Their mindset is bent toward looking for ways to better the lives of their people. This coach will use the best for the country. Pinnick is a chronic Arsenal fan who knows the value of using the best to win matches. So it is not any player that Complete Sports feature should be invited. It is not so.
