    English tabloid with all these ratings here and there. The last time was eze, now lookman and adarabioyo. Hmmmm and all these is for Nothgate to damage their international career with one and single invitation.

      Adarabioyo and Lookman are already in the middle of a Nationality switch in which the English FA is aware due to the signatures required….so it will be a futile effort for the sneaky English press to try anything that will spark the attention of Southgate.

    What is Bobby Reid of Fulham, a striker, doing at right back?

    I am here to disclaim those who have thought or believed that Tosin is in the same defensive class with Semi Ajayi, I have taken out my time to watch Tosin Adarabioyo with Keen attention and I can vehemently say it that, that guy is a really a workaholic defender.. Tosin reads the game better, much more comfortable with the ball than Ajayi. He also looks more determine. He is more focus with high level of concentration than Ajayi. He is also better while initiating attacks from the back. He also better than Ajayi in aerial duells.

    Of course, Tosin is going to be a massive addition to the super eagles’ central defense set-up. For me, I don’t trust in Ekong as he has always been overrated. In fact, I will rather play awaziem ahead of Ekong in my tinkered team.

    Tosin is going to be a longtime replacement for Balogun in the national team. I am happy that Nigeria has been able to secure the services of Tosin Adarabioyo, Ademola Lookman and king Ehizibue as they are productive addition to the super eagles in many years to come.

      Abdul, you’re right about Tosin. That boy is a good center back, and I also see him as a long term replacement for Balogun. He can even play alongside Balogun at this time, in a 2 or 3 center back formation. I have confidence in his ability.
      However, let us not mistreat our old wives because we have seen a new pretty lady. Ekong and Ajayi have done well for us in the past, and they are both good. They may be going thru a performance slump for now. And I certainly won’t judge them based on their performance against S/L, because of the awful pitches they had to play on. All I will do is keep encouraging them, because when these two are in form, they are world class.
      If we end up with 5 or 6 world class center backs, then good for us! Let Rohr have that beautiful selection headache!

       
  • How I wish NFF apply wisdom or tactics  to pressurize FIFA to expedite the process of switching these players allegiance to Nigeria on time before any hiccups set in.
