Kalu Happy To Make Bordeaux Return After Injury Induced Absence

Kalu Happy To Make Bordeaux Return  After Injury Induced Absence

Super Eagles winger, Samuel Kalu is delighted to make his first appearance for his French Ligue 1 club Girondins Bordeaux after eight weeks on Saturday at the Matmut Atlantic stadium reports Completesports.com.

The Nigerian international last featured for his team in their 1-1 stalemate against Monaco on March 9.

Kalu suffered a thigh hamstring injury that ruled him out from his club’s last ten games but he returned as a second-half substitute in Girondins Bordeaux’s 1-0 home loss to Reims on the final league game of the season.

Suk Hyun Jun scored a second-minute goal for Reims who finished ninth in the Ligue 1 season.

The Nigerian international came on for Francois Kamano in the 61st minute of the encounter and made two successful dribbles.

“Guess who is back. Amazing feeling to be back on the pitch,” Kalu wrote on Instagram.

“Not the result we want yesterday but we have to keep on working hard. God over everything.”

The game was Kalu’s 19th Ligue 1 appearances and has scored three goals and provided three assists.

Girondins Bordeaux finished 14th in the Ligue 1 table with 37 points from 38 games.

Kalu is one of the ten forwards named in Nigeria’s provisional squad for the forthcoming 2019 Africa Cup Of Nations tournament in Egypt.

The three-time African champions are in Group B along with Burundi, Guinea and Madagascar.

The 21-year-old made a breakthrough into Nigeria’s national side in October 2018, shortly after joining French Ligue 1 side Bordeaux from Belgian outfit Gent.

    3goals and 3 assist with zero trophy yet some empty brains rate him ahead of Chuba. Propaganda will make some see the truth and keep dwelling on lies just to sustain their low self esteem.

     
    • My guy we used to be on the same page, but I must say we are not on this one. Kalu is a talented player more than chuba as far as wing position is consign, they are no match. In super eagles this guy when fit poses attacking threat as a winger more than Musa, Musa is good when he plays as a false no 9 in number a 3 5 2 formation .

      Kalu is by far a better player than Chuba. Again you cannot compare the French league and the Greek league in terms of quality. The English Championship (2nd division) is also of greater quality and standard not to talk of the premiership. Meanwhile, who will you drop for Chuba? Is it Osimhen, Onyekuru, Ighalo, Onuachu? Chuba has only scored 6 goals all season in the Greek league when the rest have scored double figures in tougher leagues and he is suppose to be top striker for POAK while Kalu is a winger. Chuba is simply just not good enough currently to make the squad.

      Hahahahaha….see your life…? See how you just embarrassed yourself on a public forum once again…LMAO. You call others empty brains yet you come here with comparisons that even a madman wouldnt make…eg comparing a winger/wingback to a player who has always played as CF all this life.
      Below are Akpom’s stats: 6 league goals in 30 league matches, 2 cup goals in 9 matches….total of 8 goals in 39 all season as a CF.

      Yet you come here to lie to us that he also plays as a left winger just to look for justification for your imbecilic claims as if it is your illiterate kinsmen we have on this forum. The link above shows he has played all along as a CF and his only capable position is CF. Where you ever watched him playing as a winger or wingback for it to ever come to your brain to start comparing him with Kalu beats my imagination. Yet you come here bragging all the time that you know football more Alex ferguson sef…LMAO.

      If the rest of us are empty brains, I wonder what you are, because your comparisons most times show that you probably never passed one exam in your life without “foreign assistance”…Lolz.

      It is same you that will say Musa Muhammed is FAR BETTER than Shehu and Aina and Ebuehi combined….same you will say Isaac Success is FAR BETTER than Ighalo. Now it is Chuba Akpom that is FAR BETTER winger than S. Kalu……LMAO. Meanwhile Samuel Kalu has scored 5 goals and 6 assists in all 36 matches he has played this season as a winger or wingback.

      You are here clamouring for an 8 goal in 39 matches CF to be included ahead of the likes of Steven Odey, Nwakame, Awoniyi et al who have scored more than a dozen goals in fewer games this season. I dont understand how you want the team to have 10 CFs and no wingers just because of the bitter hatred that has eaten up the little sense you had before now.

      Mr. you need to go and take lessons on being humble and staying humble.
      Lolz

       
      • Chima E Samuels 3 months ago

        Young man the last time you told me Kalu scored 6 goals and today its 3 goals. Mind you I can tell the majorities that are against the motion that Kalu’s Bordeaux is a no match to the Greek champions. And what bad will it do if a coach adds Chuba to the preliminary list without dropping anyone for a more healthier competition. Nigeria we fail to give egual chances and in the end we shoot ourselves in the foot.

         
        • Dr. Drey 3 months ago

          Hahahaha….not only do you not comprehend english, you are also blind that you cant reat. Pls point to where i wrote 3 goals by kalu. It seems you are beginging to hallucinate. You want competition in the team but you dont want balance. 11 CFs and no wingers abi….u truely sabi football….LMAO. You are looking for competition but you didnt mention awoniyi that has scored about 14 goals this season…you didnt mention steve odeh who has 15 goals, anthony nwakaeme 12 goals or even the much talked about blessing eleke 17 goals. It is Chuba akpom that has 8 goals in all competitions you are ranting about and even lying to us that he is also a left winger, while trying to condemn Kalu, one of our brightest young prospect in europe.
          LMAO…seriously, how much did CHuba pay you for this PR job..??? Or maybe you have tried to bribe the coach and he shoved your bribe in your face, that why you run around hating.
          For someone like you who used to come here to insult all our players, calling them mediocres, mentioning an 8 goal a season striker as competition for players who are scoring in dozens, or a CF as competition for a winger/wingback is plain stupid.

          “Mind you I can tell the majorities that are against the motion that Kalu’s Bordeaux is a no match to the Greek champions. ”
          .
          Another lie from the pit of hell. Pls why are you such a chronic lair. Pls show me that survey that you conducted that stated that majority rank PAOK ahead of Bordeaux.
          The last time I checked, the French league is ranked no 5 in europe while the greek league is ranked no 10 behind even the Ukrainian and Netherlands leagues.
          So where you are getting all these your metrics just to find a way to prove that Chuba akpom was supposed to be invited ahead of sam Kalu…? Lolz.
          I know the next thing you will say not is that Chuba akpom is taller than Kalu, or he his darker than kalu. LMAO

Between Bordeaux and Poak who will play Uefa next season? Ndiara chairman and his olodo cabals make ona answer.

            Why not tell rohr to invite 25 CFs with 0 defenders, 0 midfiedlers, 0 wingers, 0 goalkeepers because we have 25 nigerian CFs who ended the season with more goals than all the players in other positions. LMAO.
            Or rather why not query rohr for inviting Osimhen ahead of akpom since PAOK is greek league champions and Chaleroi didnt even win a spoon.

    He does not play the say wing with Chuba akpom. This guy is good and with time he will be better. Although, his goals ratio may be too small this time but let’s not forget that he is playing his first season at Bordeaux. Not all players can adapt to a new terrain within a season. Not also forgetting that he has had psychological issue to battle with, the kidnapping of his lovely mother.
    He has 5goals and not 3goals as this platform is reporting.Thank you.

     
  • To fair this guy is the current best nigerian player i have ever seen. I have washed him played live many times in gent belgium. He will be the nest africa best player in the nearest future. He is not scoring alot becos he his a play maker he is not just a winger he can also play 10. The guy is strong and physicaly fit to the field he can also be a good attacker although i have alot respect for onyekuru and chukwueze and baba musa. But kalu confidents can only be compared to the legendery jayjay the last nigerian that wore no 10 in french league. I was rohr i will play 4 3 3 with starting ighalo onyekuru and musa at the front kalu mikel and ndidi in the middle, aino ekong omeruo and collins in the defense. Chukwueze iwobi etebo osihmen unuochu and moses simon these guys can come in wen necesary in the second half. Then the cup don dey abuja be that. Jah bless naija

     
    • Abdul andah 3 months ago

  • Ayphillydegreat 3 months ago

    Samuel Kalu is quite simply the best thing to happen to the SuperEagles since the WorldCup. The last Nigerian to wear the number 10 jersey in the French Ligue was the great JayJay Okocha as mentioned above. Baring any unforeseen circumstances Kalu is the first name on the SuperEagles starting 11 against Burundi. 

     
  • Kalu is good but definitely not the best prospect the Super Eagles have.. samuel Chukwueze, Henry Onyekuru and Victor Osimhen Have more raw talent and than Samuel Kalu

     
  • Kalu is good but definitely not the best prospect the Super Eagles have.. samuel Chukwueze, Henry Onyekuru and Victor Osimhen Have more raw talent than Samuel Kalu.
    don’t get me wrong he is a good prospect but he is not the player should build around the a fore three mentioned are really X Factor Players.

     
    • Simon 3 months ago

      Ugo your family will call you great. Nwa drey just like many Nigeria love brainwash expectations the other day they compare Kalu to Chukwueze and today they call him best thing to happen to Nigeria even though he is seen languishing in the french club.

      As a south east and son of Igbo land i am ashamed of many bias sentiments here Chuba Akpom is good after checking highlights on YouTube following observations from Chima and the boy is not limited to only CF but can play wing football too. Chima must understand that Nigerian thinking which is a reflection of how the economy is today and a disgrace to the world that even South Africa here will always shun Nigerians is not worth for him to argue. I have advice him to leave drey nwa ewu and his people alone to carry on with their languish believe. But he called me out to them now they are attacking him today but i will take nothing away from the big man because his love for is country brings him here everyday.

  • Ayphillydegreat 3 months ago

    Kalu was very vital in our qualifiers for the AFCON. He was one of the main reasons the SuperEagles are going back to the AFCON. He singlehandedly defeated Seychelles away and was very vital against South Africa away.

    The fact remains that Chukwueze and Onyekuru including Osimhen at the moment are not guaranteed a spot in the SuperEagles first 11 until proven otherwise. Even though I believe they will all be the pillar of the SuperEagles in the immediate future. In terms of raw natural talents and share willpower Kalu is the real playmaker imho, and he’s the only one among them guaranteed a spot in the SuperEagles first 11 at the moment.

    Kalu can play comfortably on either wings either as a wingforward or a wingback. He can also play as an attacking midfielder. His immense versatility is the reason he’s ahead of the trio at moment. Maybe after the AFCON things can change, but for now I’ll take Kalu in a heartbeat. #FLY LIKE AN EAGLE INTO THE FUTURE#

     
    • @Ayphillydegreat, Because He scored against Seychelles???? a team of Fisherman and Postmen, the same team South Africa dismantled. make no mistake i appreciate what he did in the qualifiers. The fact remains Chukwueze, Osimhen and Henry Onyekuru are causing way more waves than Kalu in Europe currently and will continue to do so because they are no flash in the pan.They are also more established at Club Level than Kalu is. If you follow football and Nigerian Players abroad you will see that Chukwueze and Onyekuru switch wings during a Game quite frequently also, Chukwueze and Osimhen came through the Ranks at youth Level quite formidably and established their Careers in Europe more ferociously than Kalu has, they are also worth more than Kalu is in the transfer market. If Given their Chance in this next few months as they rightly deserve my brother I am sorry to say Kalu will be displaced and knocked down the pecking order at national level because, these 3 players have grown in leaps and bounds far more than Kalu has since Afcon Qualifiers. I mean come on they (Chukwueze, Onyekuru and Osimhen) are carrying their respective clubs almost single handedly something Kalu is not doing even before his injury. and only players with the “X Factor” can carry a club Single handedly. #Supereaglestillthedayimeetmymaker#

       
      • Ayphillydegreat 3 months ago

        South Africa couldn’t beat the same team of fishermen and postmen Seychelles away, it was 0-0. Kalu singlehandedly did it. How is Chukwueze, Onyekuru and Osimhen singlehandedly carrying their teams??? Onyekuru is mostly complemented by Feghouli, Diagne, Mitroglu, Nagatomo, Belhanda, Mariano and his valued at $11.40 million.

        Osimhen is mostly complemented by Jeremy Perbet, Adama Niane, Ali Gholizadh and the likes in what is his first breakthrough season in Europe remember he never made the grade at Wolfsburg valued at $11.40 million.

        Chukwueze has Iborra, Carzola, Bacca, Toko Ekambi, Funes Mori all carrying Villarreal out of relegation. Chukwueze only made his debut during the first half of the season in what is also is first breakout season. Valued at $11 million. My brother I don’t see them knocking Kalu down the pecking order in present SuperEagles. Obviously, they can all complement each other. 

        Kalu was singlehandedly carrying Bordeaux before his hamstring injury and the kidnapping of his mother. Over the last two months that he was absent Bordeaux has only won 1 game in over 10 games. He was a revelation last season at Gent and was incredibly fantastic at Trenton. He has a track record of success in Europe over the last 3 seasons and he’s Valued at $11.5 million. Now please tell me who is more valuable among the quartet???? 

         
        • Simon 3 months ago

          Shut up with your crazy facts Kalu carry which Bordeaux with how many goals and assist? Kalu is one of the worst signing in the French league and he was even sent to the bench by kamano before his injury. STOP brainwashing people that he is the one helping them lies everywhere. 3 goals and 3 assist and that is what you all call star what then will you say about injured neymar Nigeria we keep lying to ourselves and make dirty excuses.

           
          • Ayphillydegreat 3 months ago

            Wether you like it or not Kalu is guaranteed a spot in SuperEagles starting 11 in Egypt. If you like go and remove him from the first 11 when Rohr says so. Lmao!! I’m sure you’re already biting trees and hugging transformers just because Kalu is in the list. Never in your wildest jungle should you ever comment on my post. Even Ugo above despite our disagreement made is point in reasonable way. Focus on your brother Chima. If you want to debate with me I’m sure you know what to do. You can go and argue with market data or google. It’s better for you to make your points without derogatory words. However, if all you ever want to come here to do is abuse people I can guarantee you that I will make your life on this forum miserable. You can find out from Chima and your fellow cohorts. 

             
        • @Ayphillydegreat Samuel Chukwueze is Buyout Clause is Valued at 60 Million Euros and could increase because Villarreal Don’t want him to leave. He is valued at about 25 – 30 million euros please get your facts straight also if Galatasaray want to sign Henry Onyekuru on a permanent Basis they must be willing to pay Everton anything in the region of 20 – 40 Million euros, Bros these guys and judging from the consistency of Onyekruru’s performances and the immense season he has just had in Turkey that asking price may not be allowed to swayed. Please check your facts

           
          • Ayphillydegreat 3 months ago

            Buyout clause??? Which club has paid it?? I don’t need to go by that until someone actually pay the money. I go by Transfer market data. Which in most cases is accurate. How do you know that Kalus buyout clause is not more?? Do you know how much Barcelona paid for the guy he replaced at Bordeaux??? Bro I can guarantee you that Onyekuru will most likely return to Everton. Those values are exactly what is on their market data and Kalu was more valuable in that aspect. If you want to know about the real value of players go to transfer market data not just some flamboyant figures by some dubious journalists who are only trying to sell articles. Like I said all four are absolutely vital for the SuperEagles, but at the moment Kalu is ahead in the SuperEagles pecking order until proven otherwise.

Let the fight for places in the national team begin. Like I always say, the truth will shall always prevail.

    The fact is  I am excited that we have so much quality upfront,that it is bringing out arguments ,who is better?
    I like that .. at least it better than what we have in our goalkeeping department;with all respect to trio there..

    although,as is excite me to read such arguments,I could state that all players we have on attack,bring different styles to the table . They are totally unique in their own way..
    Samuel Kalu is more technically gifted. He defends better. And more skillful( in terms of dribbling with speed and man to man dribbling ability). He isn’t the finish article,in term of crosses and such;but his delivery is much better than his piers as in question. His only blight the season was the injury he sustained.He was doing quite well before that happen,and it showed in Bordeaux’s play and rating on the table.like It or not,Kalu”s injury affected them.We shouldn’t forget Bordeaux is one of the most followed and historal respected clubs in France,and Kalu replaced a cult hero in Malcolm.He is a vital part of the Super Eagles.

    Henry Onyekuru is just majestic . He has so much quality . He is lethal infront of goal.He can score with both legs.He can score from outside the box.He has a good curve on the ball.He is a good header of the ball.He is fast,and as well skillful.He can play in all part of the attack.He is quality. One thing I respect him for,He always comes to the party at big games. In Belgium,always a scorer in big matches against Brugge,Standard liege, Charleroi,Genk and Ghent.
    In Turkey,he has proven the same; scoring against Fernanbache,Besiktas,and Istanbul BB yesterday to win the title.He is always ready for the big stage.
     
    Samuel Chukwueze has great potential .Fast, Skillful ,a good finisher.can play across in the front.as well a second striker or attacking midfielder. But he isn’t really attracted he finish article like Onyekuru ,in term of finishing in the final third.and his assist isn’t has great as Kalu. So yes,a good player with great prospect but for me,still got lot to prove ..

    Victor Osimhen is a totally different player.He is an out to out central forward;( the type that’s getting short in the game these days). He is a fox in the box.He is very technical and superb finisher. But totally a different kind of player to the aforementioned players,who can play as wingers and such.Truth be told,Victor is one to watch.

    And as for Chuba Akpom, He is good in attack.Had a great season .But he is not really as good as the people above ,and not really as good as the others called into the super eagles right now(at least in attack). you can only call as much strikers,there have to be space for other areas in the team. His time would come,he just need to keep doing what he does best and keep improving. It is only good for him and us.

      Spot on dear. I kept wondering why all the insults and arguments, just came online and read through but highly disappointed with this mature minds behaving like kids.

       
  • Adewuyi Olaosenikan 3 months ago

    What are these people talking?
    Edefa Egbedi is better than Chukwueze and Kalu. What the hell!!!
    Rohr keeps inviting players that are overrated but you players like Egbedi who are super but they are ignored.

    Egbedi should be in this squad, no questions asked.
    He still played well for his club this month.

    • Simon 3 months ago

      Nwa big No Kalu is a player who dribbles and run with no end result. Chukwueze and Moses are a better product to this Aba made superstar.

       
      • Ayphillydegreat 3 months ago

        Even Igbo’s are tribalistic against each other LMAO! No wonder? We claim the whites are racist yet our own racism beats my imagination. @ Darey. Good question in terms of experience and pedigree Victor Moses can only be an upgrade to Kalu definitely not better. By the way he has never gave Nigeria 100% in most of his games for the SuperEagles and has retired. SuperEagles have since moved on with young talents like Kalu, Onyekuru, Chukwueze, Osimhen and the likes who are going to take the SuperEagles to an unprecedented height under the tutelage of the German gaffer. Watch out for my SuperEagles!!!!

         
    • Mr Hush 3 months ago

      @Darey

      For me,Victor Moses in his prime was better than Samuel Kalu.
      He has achieved more than Kalu,both in club level and for country.

      Bu Victor Moses isn’t in the Super Eagles squad right now.His time has passed.
      Samuel Kalu is here now..and he can be as good or even better than Victor Moses on a good day..

       
  • Chairmanfemi 3 months ago

    I wonder what you people are even saying. The person we are supposed to be clamouring for his inclusion is STEPHEN ODEY. Not this 6goal per league Chuba AKPOM that has done shakara for Nigeria in the past and now his eyes are clearly opened that he has no future with the English team and now looking for a way to dabaru into the Nigerian National team using some Forumites head in the process. Believe me when I say CHUBA is no even match for Nwakaeme that has performed quite well in the Turkish league this season talk more of Stephen ODEY who has scored 15 goals in all 38 showings for FC Zurich this season thereby securing a place for his Club in the Europa league qualification next season. And I even noticed this so-called CHUBA AKPOM fans don’t even know that He(Chuba) is a CENTER FORWARD and not a winger like Kalu, Chukwueze, Henry etc. So Ask yourself is Chuba’s stats better than all the Invited Center forwards in the Super Eagles Team?Stephen Odey on the other hand is a utility player in attack just like Henry Onyekuru cuz he can play as a Main striker and he can also play on either of the Wings. But I respect the Coach invitation cuz the attackers all Merit it and it OK for me. I think ODEY will get invited to the U-23 team cuz he’s even more consistent than Awoniyi.

    Conclusively, Chuba AKPOM has no business in the Eagles fold for now. He isn’t better than any of the Attackers in the Super Eagles presently in anyway. Allow him to continue to impress in the Greek league then maybe he’ll get a look in the Super Eagles or Dream team XI

     
    • Adewuyi Olaosenikan 3 months ago

      Don’t mind them my brother. Even Uche Nwofor is better than Chuba Akpom.
      SMA (shaking my ass).

      Even if they invite Nwofor or Michael Uche o to the Super Eagles, they will not be out of place.

       
    • Mayowa 3 months ago

      My brothers there is no debate here Chuba Akpom and others are Nigerians and deserve chance regardless of the past mistakes he made to turn down Nigeria. Please make no mistake Uba can play other attacking line not on the CF like most you guys are saying. Simon stop fighting. Drey respect opinions I am just passing thank you.

       
  • Alamin 3 months ago

    Spot on @Mr Hush & Ugo Iwunze, Your points are 99% correct. Those clamouring for other players inclusion in d 25+ standby list pls must we fans complain, so is this list not 99% okay.

    Those saying (Kalu was very vital in our qualifiers for the AFCON. He was one of the main reasons the SuperEagles are going back to the AFCON). This is overrating, sure kalu is a very good player but I think I will go 99% with Mr Hush analysis May God bless you. Each player have their own contributions in d qualifier.
    Well for Chuba I have not watch his highlights so I can’t say much but do u think he will play anything better than those call up pls maybe u shud check d list well and u will know that our dear coach have listed d best team for this Afcon and not forgetting their individual contributions for thier club this 2018/2019 season.
    And pls Mr simon, yr first statement was abusive cause we all know we come here to state opinions not insult but Dr Drey u started it cos u sound harsh on Chima E Samuels and thanks to Mr Samuels for not answering in an enraging manner.
    I think we shud be praying for d team for successful tournament not dwelling on Mr Rohr’s already published list.
    May Allah bless us all. Amen

    As regards rejecting super eagles i dont forgive easily, so in that light akpom should wait for his England call…ewu…that sun of gun rejected us at a point in his career and now want to make us his last resort…so no matter how inform he is I’d never be gutted over his non invitation.

     
  • Ayphillydegreat 3 months ago

    No Samuel Kalu is more valuable on the transfer market and that is what I will standby. Even more valuable to his club apart from Kamano who is their top striker with 12 goals in 50+ games. At least I can still believe Transfer market data than you. No official club has come out yet to price or pay $50 million for any of Onyekuru, Chukwueze or Osimhen. Everything is still speculations. Mbaye Diagne has scored 20 goals in only 17 appearances for Galatasaray while Onyekuru had 14 in 36 games. So how is he more valuable to his club? Toko Ekambi has scored 18 goals for Villarreal this season Gerardo Moreno had about 15 goals while Carlos Bacca scored almost the same goals. Chukwueze was just their at the right time while the team is in transition. I can still understand Onyekuru because he’s gotten the same number of years as Kalu in Europe. The French Ligue 1 alone being a top five league in the world. That alone makes Kalu more valuable than both Osimhen and Onyekuru at the moment and Chukwueze is only playing his first season in Europe. We still need to see how he performs in subsequent seasons before we can ascertain his immense talent. Hopefully Onyekuru returns to Everton after a fantastic AFCON of which I’m sure Kalu will also have a great AFCON.

    As for you Simonsugomu. Amadioha will use you and your entire generation for ISI EWU. Stupid asshole who is struggling to pay for data. You have to save your night data last night abi? Oloshi somebody. I’m here for you. You will regret ever coming to this forum ask your master Chima who has already disowned you. 

     
  • Look at how you are Discreaditing the achievements of your own Nigerian brothers only to prove that your flash in the pan Samuel Kalu is better than them which we all know is not the case. The point remains my brother @Ayphillydegreat, these three in question are 21 years old, 20 and 19 respectively and are achieving so much!!. How old is your Mbaye Diagne (27 or 28 years old ), Carlos Bacca is 32yrs old and toko ekami 26 years. you see the hype about them is how young they are and delivering like this. these players you have mentioned are not being raved about by their fans and respective clubs because we all know in football the younger you are and deliver the more valuable you are just asjk Kylian Mbappe

     
    • Simon 3 months ago

      Another spicer hit I know mumus like drey Ayphilly alias willy willy will rate old cagoe Ronaldo as expensive and valuable more than Mbappe who is just exiting his teen hood. I swear if this boys can come out in real show their face I will rip their shirt off and smoke them alive for being a disgrace to their family. I have told them to add me on fbk I am sure they have seen my profile and the tyre alone of my machine in front of my mansion will make them run for their life. Nwa Ego Oyibo is the highest for life. Make nobody associate themselves with bad luck people like this losers with low education.

      Any responsible man will have a name not Ayphilly oakfied drey or even Edoman does it make any sense most of this boys who call themselves men without names always have the lowest analytical input on this forum. My first son Maxwell always tell me Daddy I am proud of you because of the example he is seeing but people like you without joy will never answer the names your parent gave you because of you badluck and no zero life. Once again I will rip apart any of these idiots even if I will have to take a flight down to Nigeria

    • Ayphillydegreat 3 months ago

      Ugo iwunze. The fact remains that Kalu is settled at club level. Not going out on loan every time like Onyekuru and Osimhen who in my opinion are still not settled in one particular club yet. And how do you know that those other players in their clubs are not adored by their country fans??? Guy Kalu is not a flash in the pan. He proved it in the qualifiers. Apart from U17 WorldCup Osimhen and Chukwueze are the New potentials. 

       
      • Ashy Slashy 3 months ago

        Ay, I actually agree with you that Kalu is not a flash in the pan.
        He will be a key player in Egypt.
        The other players are good too.

  • Sunnyb 3 months ago

    We all should be proud of these boys, after all they are all young Nigerians doing great for their respective clubs.in my opinion I think iheanacho and Iwobi are probably the  two weakest link in this team. I will pick, Simon, Kalu, Onyeball, and Sammu over them anytime, but with time Iwobi has the potential to be a superstar if he works harder and spend more time at the gym..

     
  • Sunnyb 3 months ago

    Guys pls don’t worry this debate will be settled in Egypt, I hope these players are reading all this comments, this Afcon would be like operation desert storm, all our players should be ready to be counted. Im not expecting them to be taking a broom to a gun fight. Rohr should pick the best legs, most fitted players to Egypt, no room for sentiments or pay and play. Iheanacho and Awaziem should go and join the Olympic team.

     
    • Chima E Samuels 3 months ago

      Sunnyb you Don high I no wan talk today at all but please kelechi is a GEM and I pray he makes the tram alongside Iwobi don’t forget this two have a great understanding that can wreck any team if given the chance to play together. As for the threads and the guys including my name here I choose not to delve futher because no one will listen on Afcon will educate us after action speaks.

          Chima Samuel, which chemistry iheanacho and Iwobi get ? Iheanacho is a gem abi?don’t worry bro all pretenders would be exposed in Egypt. I hope u not advocating for Rohr to drop any of the fantastic four  ooo,iWe saw the best of iheanacho In  Russia.The dude needs to decide if he wants to be a baller or instagram model. Players should be picked solely on current form,Super Eagles is not for comedians or paddy  paddy. This’s serious business bro.

           
  • This one will just be talking as if his ass is in his brain. imagine saying Iheanacho and Iwobi the weakest link later still mentioning Iheanocha and awaziem not to be in the squad. How is Iwobi and Iheanacho d weakest link? must you comment at all
