    Saka is far smarter than the whole of Super eagles players except Iwobi.

  • AJayi! Ajayi! Ajayi! Hmmmm. You may be part of the Super Eagles team but I don’t see you being ahead of defenders like Leon, Ekong, Awaziem, Akpoguma etc. If tosin also switches to Nigeria, he will also be ahead of you. I dont mean any disrespect, its just the way I feel.
    Also, Note this player:
    Abraham Marcus, remember the name, he is a future star. Plays just like saka. Currently in the Portuguese second division. Scoring goals regularly too. With a little encouragement and exposure he could over take chukwueze.

      No matter how good you are, u can’t play everywhere in a team, @ ajayi, a winning team is always a winning team, comparing players right now isn’t good at all, the coach knows what’s best the guys needs our encouragement let put sentiments away, up naija….

      @Sportsfan… I used to think you were a mature commentator. Your personal feeling about Semi Ajayi hold no weight and that your Abraham Marcus is just regular and average for now… Nothing special biko. We should be talking of getting Bobby Adekanye to stand in for Chukwueze or Joshua Zirkzee…

      Ajayi is not a bad player he just have to leave west brom to develop a winning mentality.
