    Fantastic achievement by Onuachugoalsss..in such fantastic season for almost every nigerian striker. Onuachu is just an example of what positive attitude towards competition can bring. The fear of Onuachu losing his place to just another goal bomber; Sadiq has truly forced out that inherent goal demon in him. Onuachu’s most recent type of goals are a great testimony of a sleeping giant he had been all. In all fairness to him, it’s will take something out of this world to displace him from the SE team presently and can’t see Rohr playing the devil’s divide against him in team selection.A big big congratulations Longinus Onuachugoalsss.. Sure gonna come ever green everytime you go down memory lane on this great achievement. God bless Onuachu, Osimene, Sadiq, Moffi, DESSERS etc gooooaaallllssss..

      Well said Brodaman Glory. May you walk and never tumble. I have never doubted Onuachu’s abilities for club and country for 1 minute. I am glad he is winning doubters over. Gone were the days when he was compared to Onwubukire in national team football. This is the sort of news we want he hear of Super Eagles players in club football. Jah bless Onuachu and all deserving Super Eagles players. For those Nigerian footballers underperforming in club football, I pray that the blessings of improvement fall on them.

        @Eldridge Cleaver, @GLORY
        This guy is a game-changer. He makes the most of the few minutes he grabs in the SE and poses solid performance. He stays calm and focuses on results. Gradually he has warmed his way into the hearts of sceptical fans who overlooked him because of the ranking of his league.

        I pray he goes to Liverpool and give Mo Salah some headache.
