  • What A Beautiful Strike From Ola aina.. Nice One

    And samu chukwueze scores…! Sweet goal that left the keeper rooted to the spot. Playing more through the center when the alternate side is overloaded will improve his output better than continuously hugging the touchline all the time. Nice time to get your 1st league goal of the season.

  • Wow! Happy to hear these news about Chukzy and Ola’s performances. I felt bad last time cos Aina didn’t take part in those friendlies as up till now he’s the best among the side backs we have offensively and Chukzy’s recent performance is worrisome too.
    The only way is up my gees.

    Ola offers more offensively than ebuehi,but both are good players

    @D-Cardina , same opinion with me , both Ola Aina and Ebuhehi are the main KoKo 

  • When it comes to picking a pass as a full back, I think ola aina takes it but defensively he isn’t the best we have in the full back position. So it depends on what the coach wants in a particular game. Does he want a more attack minded Full back or a more defensive full back.
    Anyways, congratulations to both aina and chukwueze on scoring their first league goal. I wish you both more goals and great performances with an injury free season.

    Super strike from a Super Eagle. Aina has always impressed in an attacking role. Good to see him getting back to top form.
    BTW, is Efan Ekoku the best commentator in football? To me, he is definitely up there among the very best. Is it possible for NTA to offer this guy a contract, so he can run commentary on Nigeria games? What a treat that would be for Nigeria fans! Also, our local commentators stand to benefit, as they observe and learn how to run a proper commentary from a master of the trade.

    What a goal!!
    Aina is an all rounded footballer. He can defend, uses both legs, good in the air,, skillful, creates and scores goals.
    Congrats Aina!!

    It was a great goal by Aina!I’m excited for the lad hoping they build on this rare victory tonight.

    Glad they have started winning after a slow start to the season.Fulham is a club that has potentially three super eagles and a club Nigerians follow with a keen interest.

    I hope Aderabioyo and Lookman’s change of allegiance is approved by the world football governing body to swell our options.
