    Watford is the New Super Eagles in Premiership. Last season it was Fulham, but really sad they had to drop. Etebo the 5th Naija player and also hoping Onuachu will make it 6. This shows they are really happy with Ekong signing as he has opened the door for others. I hope Isaac Success will get his groove back and Dennis will show his Champions league exploits against Real madrid 2 seasons ago is no fluke. While Etebo will be keen to dazzle the world like he did in Olympics of 2016 and became the first player on Rohr’s wish list when he picked the job during Rio 2016.

    It promises to be an interesting times so many our boys landing in the top 5 league. And Premiership with the largest contingent.
