    If they like they can call you Onwubikire but you are far better than their underperforming Everton flop! Lolzzzz lolzzzz Za Za Za. Some players have been encouraged for 3 whole seasons by their rotten teeth fans because they continue to play poorly whereas Onuachu the Real Great had been scoring goals like pure water throughout that time. They spend 3 seasons consoling their flop but we spend that time praising our genuine hero, a true legend Paul The Magnificent..
    Lolzzzz, Lolzzzz. Soon we will rid the super Eagles of all flops. Heaven bless Onuachu and all performing deserving Super Eagles players.

      You talking about the Super Eagles of our united Nigeria.

    • One, you cannot compare a striker to a midfielder, secondly u cannot compare a player that plays in Belgium with a player that plays in England.

  • This Salzburg of a team seems to have a whole lots of Nigerian players God…okafor,adamu,adeyemi and and tijani. Wow

    • Chima E Samuels 2 years ago

      And of all of them only Tijani is committed to Nigeria. The rest na okrika…..

    Far better comparing Paul with Iwobi is an insult to Paul. Iwobi should up his game and improve.

  • Edoman 2 years ago

    Paul is far ahead of Osimhen at the current form. No Nigerian has won the Golden Booth in Belgium in recent memory which Paul won last season.

    • Chima E Samuels 2 years ago

      Paul is ahead of Osigoal because of what? Ashawo don change cloth again.
