  • Edoman. 2 years ago

    This guy is far hotter than Iheanacho. He must be in Egypt.

  • Obidee 2 years ago

    Really I don’t knw why the coach always ignored this guy and go for less playing one’s.. Is it bcos he play in Turkish league or what?

    • Ndubuisi 2 years ago

      Cos he has been tried but did not convince. Some players are club players like formal international Richard Owobokiri scoring week in week out but the quality of play was nothing to write home about. Scoring for club side and playing for national team are not the same thing.

  • @Ndubuisi, I agree with you, some players are just great club materials; like Jonny Akpoborio and Benedict Akwuegbu.
    we need young players that will last a little long in the team.

  • Oakfield 2 years ago

    Well, 10 goals in 22 matches with a couple of assists is really not a bad record. Mr rohr should effectively try him out in friendlies to sharpen his adaptability to the national team as some players are club materials.

    • Ashy Slashy 2 years ago

      You have a point. Nwakaeme deserves to be considered be of his form.

      • Oakfield 2 years ago

        Sure, he really needs to b given another second chance. Super eagles is nobody’s birth right.

  • While I agree with you that Nwaekeme be given another chance, it is important to note that nobody said super eagles is anyone’s birthright. He must be able to convince the coach he can displace or give a run for their money of the established strikers.
    It is a good thing for us

  • As you guy’s know what is good for super eagles, tells me who chould step out for him to get in the fold?

  • Its all about taking ur chamces, he messed up against Algeria,mark my word nwakeme will not smell afcon,onuachu too his chance and his now been considered,

  • Anthony should get a look in from Rohr on account of his strings of fine performamces for his club; Nwakeme features in the same league as Victor Moses and Onyekuru and a few other nigeria forwards, compare these other strikers Anthony Nwakeme has done remarkable well and should get a 2nd chance in Eagles colours.
    He is a decent striker with an imposing physicality and flair.

  • Talking of taking your chances when it comes, remember Bartholomew ogbeche and Bright Dike, they did take their chances when it presented itself.

    • Chima E Samuels 2 years ago

      But how many more matches were they called for after taking their chances the country is a messed up country man. Corruption is the order of the day I remember how Martins scored heaven and earth but some coach will never call him not until he got injured and out. Yet they will give IGhalo 15chance to prove himself. Before he will start scoring against fishermen and loose when it comes to Argentina

  • I agree Anthony Nwakaeme deserves a chance to prove his mettle on the international stage. Hrs scoring and assisting for fun now and is one half of the most dangerous attack in the Turkish premier League (with Hugo Rodallega).

    When he was tested for the Super Eagles, we were still losing games we should have won and the team was still defining it’s shape and tactics.

    I’ll put my neck out and say, we have a recognisable way we play and wingers are a crucial part of it. We have them in abundance. On the left we have Ahmed Musa, Henry Onyekuru, Moses Simon, Alex Iwobi (if required). On the right we have Samuel Kalu, Samuel Chukwueze and oyf we need Dennis Emmanuel Bonaventure. Nothing says we cannot add Nwakaeme to the mix and rotate players as required. Maybe due to injuries, suspensions, or even tactics.
    So we need someone big and strong coming in on the left, throw Nwakaeme on, if we need pace, them Ahmed, need guile then Simon or Henry.

    Same, we need players in the under w0 or under 23, no problem, Chukwueze, Bonaventure, Onyekuru can go and we still have options to choose from.

    That’s the beauty of having a system the players understand

    • Adisboy 2 years ago

      All well and good Big D, but the problem is we can only take 23 to Egypt. I believe he will make the preliminary squad but doubt he will make the final list. There’s just too much competition.

  • I think super eagled midfield is the problem not attack infact we have attackers even more than france and italy. Our midfielders are not creative enough this will affect our afcon victory. For example ndidi and etebo are not good enough midfielders for eagles they dont have the character of our midfield only rohr can use them as midfielders keshi or siasia will not do that. They messed our world cup check out three matches at the worldcup they could not deliver any obvious chance for our attackers against argentina they could not keep possesion for even minimum 3 minutes to delay time. I agree they both have strenght pace work or watever but that is needed in cameroun or senigal mali trams not nigeria. We are not known as a tacklers or fighters. Our midfielders are known to dictate games. Have quick vision and can hold on to the ball. These guys cannot. Ndidi is a defender in nigeria football etebo is a winger or eight he should have been our own tevex i dont know wish coach brought them together as midfielders running around without understanding. If u look at sanisu team that took second in afcon for africa u will notice that the team strenght was in the middle. They didnt have good attack or even defends but the midfield kept on till final look our under 23 thesame strong midfield until azuibuike got injured against denmark we could defeat germany if he was there. Ndidi reminds me of olofinjana etuhu and ayila style we suffered with these guys untill we got onazi who was a replical of keshi him self to partner mikel and it pays ay afcon and world cup. Come rain come shine ndidi or etebo can never be mikel and onazi. Or azubuike. The two nwakali and ojo.rabiu ali these are few names of nigeria real midfielders. My opinion
