    Good news, great news indeed. Onyekuru wins Turkish league, Akpom wins Greek league, Etebo wins best player in his club, Ndidi wins best tackler in the EPL, Osimhen wins best player in his club, Jamilu gets promoted to the bundesliga. Show me which other African team has the pedigree of this Nigerian outfit. A team with a strong bench that can possibly displace the first teamers. This is the ingredient you need to be a title winner. And I have no doubt that this year’s AFCON belongs to Nigeria. Insha Allah.

      I say a big amen to that prayer. Henry as been very consistent over the years…from Eupen to Anderlecht to Gala, he has shown that his time at the prestigious Aspire football academy in Qatar, same academy that gave us francis uzoho, was not a waste of resources. He’s really one to watch at the AFCON next month
