No player has scored more goals in the FA Cup since the start of the 2015/16 season than the Nigeria international.

“The FA Cup loves me and I love the FA Cup,’ said Iheanacho.

‘‘I was in the right place at the right time. I’ve been unlucky in the past few years but it’s working out well now and I need to go to the next level.’’

    To be honest, rohr has really brought some level of good will to the eagles. His influence on players careers is second to none. Every full or partial member of the team is really having great times in their respective clubs. Our strikers are scoring day in day out on all cylinders. Our defenders are performing very well, same are our midfielders. Those who are yet to be called up are performing to prove a point. Those who were called up but dropped bcs of form are drastically improving and impressing at their respective clubsides. If there’s anything mr rohr has brought into the ream, it’s competition. Every player wants to perform in order to “earn ” an invitation unlike in the past when players would just relax and just have to make a wire to the coach to be given an invitation and the end result was terrible that most of us became ashamed of our senior team. Now, the eagles have become a classy brand in world football. We’ve never had it this good. Great coach, great team, great players!! Ndewo!

  • @oakfield You’ve said it all bro… Glory to God, kudos to Rohr and bravo to the guys… Longs shall this continue…. Amen!!!
