    Good one for Samuel Kalu. 3 goals and 2 assist for the season so far is not a bad return for a winger. Obviously, there’s room for improvement and consistency. However, Kalu is one of the best thing to happen to the SuperEagles since the WorldCup in Russia.

      Yeso, the discovery of Kalu, collins and Chukwueze after the world cup has really improved the Eagles. And Kalu performance in his club is eye catching. No wonder he is beginning to rob shoulders with the likes of Neymar, Mbappe, Cavani, Dimaria and so on in the team of the weak.
      Welldone guys and kudos to the new improved Super Eagles

    Chukwueze is the motivation behind Samuel Kalus form of late. The young lad has pushed him to the extreme and these is what we expect from other position as well and Dele Alampasu comeback is exciting as well!
