      False bro. Go and read an unbiased report of the game pls.
      Please let us be modest with our emotions and sentiments

      • @Lekan Instead of reading reports why not watch the game??.. He actually had a very good first half the only blip was the Hazard goal. like the commentator said in the match he was a little naive in that goal as the coach had him in a holding midfield role (CDM) and we all know he is actually an Attacking midfielder. so cut the boy some slack he is only getting a run now and has to build momentum. Next time instead of relying on media reports on a game try watching it.

    • @Emmanual I concur his control, balance, distribution and movement were brilliant the only problem he had was tracking back he was quite slow but like any one who played ball knows tracking back efficiently comes with match fitness and yo can only acquire correct match fitness from game time which if he gets enough under his belt he will be SOLID

  • I rejoice with you bro.

  • Eyaaaaaaa
    As good as he was on the pitch….
    Dribbling and throwing some dangerous passes….. Infact controlling the entire pitch but he could not play up 1 hour for his world class club, HEUSCA…..

    @Ugo, I agree with you absolutely, Nwakali aside from not being very fit is not known to be a fast player but what he lacks in speed he surly makes up in adapt control of the ball.He was very good.@Lekan, go and see for yourself don’t read so u can make unbiased assessment.

    it was not bad, but the guy seems to have lost some confidence on the ball, he needs to show presence in the midfield by making himself more available for first or second contact option of passes so that he can gain more distribution and possession. thats what Ndidi does. he also need to work on his general mobility on and off the ball, he needs some ruggedity too. in my honest opinion I think the likes of ejiara azeez etebo and aribo are still ahead of him. he really needs commit himself more to the game before he can take a stand in the eagles. I fear nwakali may endup like ogu that couldn’t seel a parmernet stay in eagles starting eleven up till his retirement on less he works verry hard on the ball .

    In 56 minutes….;

    Shots: 0
    Key Passes: 0
    Aerial duels won: 1
    Total tackles won: 1
    Interceptions: 0
    clearances: 0
    Blocked shots: 0


    That’s the stats of the man who had a “Fantastic performance ” for 56 mins before being yanked-off after lackadaisically costing his team 2 goals on the day. With an Ndidi on that pitch Madrid wouldn’t have scored their 2nd and 3rd goals. Yet ‘…Kelechi Nwakali is better than all super eagles midfielders including Mikel…’

    And the young boy will read such hype and think he is doin well and repeat the same performance the next week until he is dumped permanently on the bench. That is how sycophants assist in killing the careers of Nigerian youngsters.
