    Wow 60th appearance amassed!Congratulations big boy!Amazing footballer Iwobi has turned out to be for Nigeria,at the moment he and Osimhen are the best players in our team,I wish Iwobi was available for the world cup double header against our age long rivals Ghana.Apparently,in that game our midfield needed this bloke just like duck to water..
    I shall be looking forward to his combo tonight hopefully,with Onyedika whose unofficial debut was not shown live but tonight the searchlight will beam on Raphael and the right winger from the Portuguese league who had a great game against the Algerian B side,another player to look out for is the Hoffenheim of Germany defender Akpoguma,we would love to see how he combines with hard tackling and energetic Ajax central defender,it shall be an entertaining game of football against two very good African sides.
    Wishing the super eagles nothing short of victory tonight.
