    Osimhen is the perfect striker that the SE have wanted as a replacement for Ighalo. Give him the chance and he will prove to be worthy of being the SE striker. Quite honestly, I am surprised I did not see his name in the list of the upcoming friendly against Ukraine. Mr Rohr, pay attention or walk.

    Moses Simon nominated for player of the Month in Nantes,

    Okereke nominated for player of the month in Bruge,

    Ndidi nominated for goal of the month in Leicester city FC

    It is however a shame that the NFf invited 52 players for both the match against the Ukraine and the Under 23 matches against Sudan, but Okereke was dropped for both
