      I know. How Lokosa and Okpotu did not make the Afcon squad is beyond me.

        Bros i hope you are just saying this as a joke. We saw Okpotu at the last CHAN missing complete sitters. Meanwhile where is he even playing now. Do you suggest Lakosa and Okpotu replace Onuachu – 17 goals this season, Osimhen also 17 goals this season or Ighalo who has 6goals in 7games already this season? What are the stats of those 2 this season? I beg we should be looking at players that can improve our quality not diminish it. If we continue to clamour for the players you spoke of Nigeria will go down to the levels of Kenya, Sudan, Zimbabwe etc. God forbid. I suggest you go back and watch our matches in the last CHAN, which by far lower standard than AFCON, then tell me if Okpotu is anywhere near the level of our current strikers.

         
      • Junior Lokosa joined Esperance of Tunis in January. He has only just broken into the first team. He has played 4 games in 5 months (yes he scored two goals) but the goals came AFTER the squad list was released.

        4 games in 5 months versus players who have been playing week in week out and scoring goals for fun. Stephen Odey, Anthony Nwakaeme, Taiwo Awoniyi, Junior Ajayi, Peter Olayinka, Chico Ofoedu and a host of others should be way ahead of him as they have performed consistently over the season, both in their leagues as well as Europa cup.

        Most (not all) of the players called up deserve their place and all even Iheanacho (34 games 2 goals and 4 assists for Leicester this season) have out performed Junior Lokosa when you take a season long view of their performances. Lets look at the season long stats of all three:

        Iheanacho 34 games, 2 goals, 4 assists, 1237 minutes on the pitch

        Junior Lokosa 8 games 2 goals, 1 assist, 436 minutes played

        Anthony Okpotu 9 games, 1 goal, no assists (572 minutes on the pitch)

        Now compare with

        Victor Osimhen 34 games, 17 goals, 4 assists, 2760 minutes played and you can see that no matter who you compare both with in the squad called up, they all deserve their place far far far more than Lokosa and Okpotu
