    This is another potential osihmen, 5 goals in seven games in the french top flight nor be beans oh, a verry powerfull striker, he reminds me of the yak, aside burnaboy and osihmen, akor can displace anyother striker in the eagles, though we havnt seen orban play for eagles, apart from osi and burna, me personaly cannot trust the remaining names, though some have improved of recent eg, awo and moffi, but lets see what akor will bring, i hope pesero calls him, i see a yakubu emenike kind of a striker in akor.

      A thousand votes of approval Brotherman @Collins ID.
      U nailed it.

  • There is absolutely no place for Finished legs like Ahmed Musa in Super Eagles anylonger.

    We move with all the upcoming forwards in our disposal now.

  • As I always state CLEARLY IN BOLD… Nigeria’s best exports to Europe is from our Academies who move to Youth Natioanl team, Nigeria’s Strongest players have never kicked a ball in NPFL. They are strong because first if they show potential in the Academies and Youth teams they Move to Europe at a young age and get Educated with Top Football techniques from a young teenage years.

    P.S as the saying goes you cannot teach an old dog New tricks with a hand ful of exceptions i.e. Odion Ighalo, Ognekaro Etebo, Ahmed Musa (When he was relevant)
