        Thank you my brother. That’s the impact the gaffer has transformed into our football over the last 3 years. Now everyone is showing their capabilities to be counted. With our current position in the Fifa rankings most of our players wouldn’t need work permit to play in European top leagues particularly in England. Akpom is also a viable option in the top striker position. Iheanacho, Success, Osimhen, Akpom, Onuachu, Okereke, Awoniyi, Odey the list is endless. OMG! I don’t know if I’m the only one loving the potentials in the immediate future. #FLY LIKE AN EAGLE INTO THE FUTURE# SUPEREAGLES FOR LIFE.

    Junior Ajayi, oshimen,Awoniyi are the men who are having the manager needs to look into on the strikers role . They are Youth internationals that needs serious looking on . They need to work harder so that they can get the chance to be in the tram

    The issue of looking for a number ten, 2 men are considered
    Dele Bashiru and Kel Nnwakali .
    I saw their match and believe me when I say this, they have what it takes to play in that position.
    I hope they will not play politics over the matter.

    Semi Ajayi should return to the team.
    Alot of work needs to be done in the team.

  • joe aribo of rangers should step in for mikel.and abdul zubairu who plays exactly like kante for as trecin.

    Something tells me this Okereke will have a successful super eagles career.
    Now he plays in the top division and I believe with hardwork he will move to a better league next summer.
    This season will be a great season for Nigerian players.Super eagles performances at the just concluded afcon and ratings by fifa has raised the bar high and we can only get better.
    By the look of things we are shaping up to take our ratings further up and rule Africa in the coming years and establish ourself amongst the best in the world.
    Gernot Rohr has brought belief back to our football.

  • but if not becos age fenando adi is the rightful replacement of ighalo.he is 29 now plays in major soccer league is very good striker even though he is not in europe.
