    oshimem with 12 caps and 6 goals

    Onuachu 11 caps, 3 goals.

    Not a bad statistics for both players.

    I don’t envy any striker who wishes to compete with these two guys.

    Can a sadiz umar or awoniyi get such stat as this if invited?

    Thank you, your Excellency for providing a warm environment for the SE. I am sure they will want to remain in the center of excellence.
    Your Excellency, please help us the fans of our dear SE to make the pitch better for subsequent games. The players really struggled to move the ball around nicely. Thank you

    Congratulations to Super Eagles. Finally, Super Eagles have returned home. Lagos here we come.

    I’m happy for Osimhen, the goal he scored in today’s match wasn’t an easy one.

    Etobo, what a player.

    Hmm. My pikin, Onuachu, excellent, elegant, exceptional, tested and trusted. Fabulous and an amazing striker.

    I am saying this most of the time that Onuachu doesn’t need 90 minutes to prove his class but just 20 minutes is enough for him and he will prove his worth.

    Now, Oga Rohr have studied how Onuachu can be used in the Super Eagles. Towards the end of the match which is good for the team.

    I’m not a coach neither an agent but I am here to give the little have to support the Super Eagles. God I thank you.

    Here is another point I’m making here today.

    Whenever Onuachu is playing in the national team, Ebuehi have to be on the pitch with him. Ebuehi should be talking most of the corner kicks.

    Chukwueze should be playing in his natural position. That doesn’t mean he and players can’t switch their positions but for the benefits of the team, Oga Rohr have to say this to his players.

    Yobo have started doing wonders in this team with Oga Rohr.

    I am feeling it if you don’t. We need another expert to work with Oga because if we have to see the best of this our team.

    Oh yeah, this team got talented players at the moment.

    I’m very happy for Onuachu. Congratulations to Oga Rohr, NFF, our darling team and Nigerians.

    Welcome to Lagos state Super Eagles, the home of the pride of Africa. No going back. I can’t wait to see Eagles playing matches in the main bowl of the national stadium in Surulere.

    Kudos to Oga Rohr. Keep it up. Congratulations Nigerians. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!
