    Napoli all the way….. They’ll be replacing Osimhen with another Beast of different attributes, Na only headers Osigoal take pass Orban judging by all the things I’ve seen of him but Orban also possess qualities that Osimhen doesn’t even come close to, is it free kick or nimbleness??? minus bad leaders Nigeria is Blessed!!!

      After studying probably..his position in eagles line up is has nobody yet eagles have been playing without anyone to man that position for the past 10 years ..
      With oshimen as 9 this guy can hold noba 10 jersey for another years to comes ..

        Playing him as 8 is rather the best for Nigeria, by this way when opponents focus on Osimhen he’ll be left to do the damage from close. For 10 Nigeria still needs someone in the frame of the original Mikel who will be giving Orban Victor ETC the killer passings. Aribo was ideal but he’s found himself in a place he doesn’t belong at Southampton where all the Nigerian players are languishing.

      How I wish Nigeria leaders see this merited blemish meted on them

  • Imagine, he was not released by his club for the U23 qualifier to be played today 22nd March 2023. All this was as a result of negligence, inability to make decision on time and lack of organization which has characterize every successive NFF administration. The score card of this administration has started today and I pray it’s positive nevertheless they have to earn it by being proactive. God bless Nigeria.

      Who will release their best players for Salisu and NFF with poor welfare for u23 players to mess up the guys momentum with their shenanigans. Salisu might even bench him if he doesn’t rub palms and you know good players don’t bribe so poor will sit on bench and NFF will have lies to say just like their Election lies. They won’t even care if we believe or not they just say what they can and keep hurting the nation for their self gains.
