    Glad to hear he is finally doing better healthwise. It’s been a long, long absence. Hope he finds his way back into the Super Eagles. Always a good option to have in the squad when fit and in form.

     
    • Well he needs to work damn hard, I don’t see him being able to upstage any of our current midfielders for places in the current squad. To be honest Onazi payed his last good game for the Super Eagles 5 years ago at the World cup 2014 in Brazil. That World cup 2018 warm game against England in Wembley Stadium defined his calamitous performances for us over a 4 year period he should have never made the World Cup squad also against South Africa in Uyo 2 and a bit years ago as the only senior player in the squad that day he failed to lead by example and was the most woeful performer for us in the field of play. Onazi for now is not needed in the Super Eagles squad.
