    Maja is a star in his own right. His supreme quality will be exposed soon enough.

  • SD Special Delivery Jones 10 months ago

    Maja has no place in the Super Eagles. Let’s keep it serious.

  • Maja is good but we are still struggling to choose from Moffi, Awoniyi, Sadiq, Dessers, Boniface and Orban to deputize Osimhen. He has to wait o! He really has to wait.

    You guys can DISRESPECT FOOTBALLERS

    Imagine people comparing BELGIAN based ORBAN even @UGO IWUNZE rated him ahead of AWONIYI….Haba

    After OSIMHEN, no NIGERIAN striker anywhere in the World on current form and STATISTICS in the last 3 years come close to AWONIYI

    Let ORBAN, AKPOM, BONIFACE etal TEST themselves in a TOP 5 LEAGUE for 2 CONSECUTIVE seasons like AWONIYI has done; first with UNION BERLIN (2 DIGITS GOALS) and NF …10 LEAGUE goals before any one can compare them
