    This is good news but it does not matter… We still need Ighalo for experience and mentorship for the younger strikers. I support our coach in this line of thought!

     
    • Ighalo does not have any experience….has he played an afcon final?,has he played world cup knock out stage?.has he played champions league before?..has he played in a top four club in the top 5 leagues in Europe before?..ABEG educate me on his experience

    … Lol. Ighalo must come back he is scoring for fun in Saudi Arabia League. Ighalo is already proven with Eagles he needs not prove anything anymore to anyone! Rohr knows more than anyone fan, ex-player or other coaches who have a thing or two to do with Eagles… He sees the players in trainings always and he knows what Ighalo can bring to the table… Let’s support him to have Ighalo back since he wants him… Ighalo is afterall still a Nigerian player!

     
  • _Moffi Soars, Others keep flying too_

    How must it be to be in Victor Osimhen’s Super Eagles boots with no endless number of strikers emerging by day ready, willing and potentially able to snatch the automatic Nigeria starting position from the Napoli man.

    This week, as reported by CSN, Lorient’s Super Eagles hopeful Terem Moffi was named in the Ligue A team of the month having banked himself a cool 6 goals across just 4 games in just 21 days in April to underscore his rising reputation as one of the deadliest assassins in the French league.

    And with that sort of ruthlessness, Osimhen better watch his shoulders. But if Terem Moffi is a snake then Osimhen is prepared to be a mongoose that is ready to fight and bite the head off all contenders to his much coveted Super Eagles starting 11 boots.

    After a crisis-ridden start to his career in Italy, the 2015 under 17 world cup gold medallist is starting to plant his feet firmly on the ground and store his shots in the back of nets. In the same month that Moffi moved mountains in France, Osimhen also sent his own shock waves with 4 goals and 1 assist across 6 games in the more arduous Serie A – no greater indications need be sought of his intentions to stamp his authority in Italy and cement his position in Nigeria.

    But isn’t it even disrespectful to suggest that Moffi is throwing down the gauntlet to Osimhen, after all, there are still at least 3 other strikers for him to claw over before catching a glimpse of Osimhen’s shadow.

    Senior man from a more senior league Iheanacho deposited 4 goals in the Premier League bank across 5 games in the same April while writing a cheque of 2 assists in the process. As for Paul Onuachu, that one is a bank robber in Belgium with all the Sheriffs of the other teams placing a bounty on his head. And do you blame them? It is truly criminal to have held defenders at goals-point before stealing away with 4 goals from 3 games in April (letting Moffi know that even featuring in the same team of the month as Mbappe might not be enough to qualify him for a Super Eagles credit card).

    And with the likes of Sadiq Umar, Simy (JimmyBall) Nwankwo and Ike Agbo all making goals deposits in their respective league-banks, all Terem Moffi can do is exactly what he is doing: scoring goals, posting barnstorming performances and attracting multiple individual accolades.

    But in this climate, even these aren’t enough to attract Super Eagles invitation because now, it is not a case of who to invite, rather a case of who to drop.

    The strikers in Rohr’s current squad haven’t made any case for them to be tossed overboard. Rather, they all seem to be going from strength to strength.

    But, after June, they will all be on a sort of level playing field because it will be a new season across Europe for them to continue from where they left off. Their respective forms between September and November/early December 2021 will go a long way in determining which of them would have done enough to be considered for the Afcon tournament in January.

    On another day, Moffi’s recent accomplishments would have knocked all other Super Eagles rivals into a cocked hat. Not this time. He is celebrated for what he is doing while Osimhen and others are holding on to their Super Eagles hats with their own statements of intent.

    It is now to see which of them will continue to make this statement well into the immediate future.

    S. Chukweze (5goals-8assists), M. Simon (6goals/3assists), S. Kalu (4goals/1assist), A. Lookman. 4goals/4assists), C. Ejuke (3goals/2assists), Onyekuru (5goals/3assists), P. Olayinka (11goals/5assists), A. Iwobi. (2goals/3assists)….but 31yr old Victor Moses should be brought back because he is “experienced and will mentor” these young wingers. However though, 31 yr old Ighalo must NEVER be mentioned when talking about currently active and proven Nigerian CFs. So says people who project themselves to be acolytes of Justice and fairness, to know more than the coach and insult him day and night for being a “feeble-mouthed, double-standard” personality.

    Weldone to Moffi o jare. More grease to your ankles. Biko never stop banging in the goals in France despite not being the main striker in Lorient. People who want you to wait till 2030 to prove yourself can switch of their TVs when they see you in a SE jersey in the year 2021. Averaging over 60% goal/game ratio despite moving to higher difficulty levels consecutively in the space of 2 years (still at 21 yrs of age) is not enough proof that you are a PROVEN goalscorer and worthy of a place in today’s SE.

      Are you in any way justifying the return of ighalo? To do what?

      If the return of ighalo is to tutor our young strikers so also will Victor Moses experience benefits our young wingers too.

      Let me ask again if the return of ighalo is righteous in your eyes what chances do player like moffi has in the super Eagles?

      Some people will be defending the indefensible, if Rohr knows he can’t win AFCON for us and improve our team he should jeje resign and leave.

      We hate excuses!

        Hahahahaha….you can tell us what is SINFUL about Ighalo returning from retirement to the national team. You will tell us if he will be the 1st ever to do so in the game of football. LMAO. Pls Go and shoot him if/when he ends up doing so.

        If Victor Moses can return to the SE to ‘tutor and mentor’ the avalanche of wingers we have at the moment, why cant Ighalo also return for same reasons under same circumstances….?! Rohr has ALWAYS opened the door to every quality retiree from the SE under his tenure, from Mikel to Moses to Ighalo. He has never shut the door on any of them. He has always laid down his now famous 3 caveats – you must be willing, fit and performing – to be in contention in the 1st place. Any returning player who meets these caveats is as Nigerian as every other Nigerian (young or old) who deserves a call-up to the national team. The choice is left to the coach. If the young ones are worthy of the mark, let them retire the old ones themselves. Make all of them come camp come fight for shirts together and see who will pass the test.

        Mikel had been threatening us with retirement for years b4 2019, but we kept begging him to hold on/come back (even when his body language sometimes back then wasnt pleasing to fans) because no one was ready to retire him. Even Pre-Afcon 2019, we were still of the opinion that he was highly needed. After AFCON 2019 the young man willingly surrendered when small boys like Ndidi and Etebo confined him to the bench. If Ighalo eventually rescinds his decision, and these young boys cannot confine him to the bench, the way the trio of Iwobi, Etebo and Ndidi ensured Mikel warmed the bench in Egypt, then they are not ready/serious about being SE strikers just yet. As a matter of fact, ANY NIGERIAN who is still good enough to be signed by MANCHESTER UNITED of England and can make critics/skeptics EAT THEIR WORDS is good enough to be called up to the national team.

        If Odion chooses to come out of retirement, no shaking, let the young ones beat their chest and tell themselves I will retire this man…..If he chooses to remain retired….no shaking still. But if acolytes of justice and fairness can root for the return of 31yr old Victor Moses when we have 8-10 potential wingers already…..then they should stop disturbing the neighborhood because Ighalo is still being retained/mentioned in the pool of available Nigerian CFs. Afterall, its the media that still keeps asking the coach stale questions about Ighalo….questions he has answered again and again without changing his answers. Ighalo has not rescinded his decision, neither has the coach listed him (even on standby) in any of his named squads ever since, and doesnt even look like that will happed anytime soon. So who are the alarmists who are faster than their shadows, crying wolf where there is none and creating storms in a teacup…???

        Ighalo this….Ighalo that….! What are you all afraid of…?! Let the young ones retire the old ones themselves…..that is how it has always been in football and that is how it shall continue to be. And if they can not then its their luck. They should wait till when they can while the old ones continue to strut their stuff if they still have the lungs to do so.

         
        • Dr. Drey 6 months ago

          The young ones in the team at the moment should focus on their own game in the SE and not about some scary fairy Ighalo somewhere. They should keep on doing their stuff now that they are being given the opportunity to do so. All the noise about an Ighalo comeback will naturally fade away. Journalists can continue to rehash the same question over and over again just bcos they wanna sell newspapers. But if we are waiting for Rohr to say so so person or that that person will never be invited to the SE again….then we should all be prepared to wait till he’s no longer the SE coach.
