  • Dennis the menace…..very pacy and direct player who I will prefer in SE…..He should be given a chance to try his luck with SE

      Some people will ask… Who will he go in to bench in Super Eagles?

      • Dr Banks 1 month ago

        Good question, please tell us boss whom you think he can bench in our squad at the moment

  • Even Ismaila Sarr, Watford Forward and super regular with Senegal will be surprised how his hot team mate, Dennis doesn’t get an invite from Nigeria. After all, Senegal is ranked ahead of Nigeria and Sarr is never overlooked in selections. What an irony!

    Are we spoilt for choice in the striker’s role or is it about playing safe and not exploring/trying further opportunities/combinations and possibilities? Good, better, best. I will never rest, until my good is better, and my better best. Josh Maja is still there o.

  • Dennis had a very poor season last year, he went on loan to Germany and things didn’t improve. Alot of people were surprised with his Watford move,because a lot of people thought he was unmanageable. But I guess some people still remembered his goals against madrid and man utd and some people still believed in his quality. Right now I think he should be focused on getting himself back to that level were he was a regular and consistent in his performance. Playing for the Super Eagles should not be the priority right now. He needs to score more goals, he plays as an attacker now. The premiership is the perfect stage for him to show he is ready for the Super Eagles. If he can cross the 10 goal mark this season im guessing he will atleast make the Super Eagles waiting list incase one of the regulars are unavailable. Right now, most of the players in the team are playing regularly for their clubs and are giving good performances and knowing coach rohr, he will not change his regular team unless he has to.
    Although I would also like to see a player like Sadiq Umar play for the Super Eagles, I feel it will be difficult for him with the current form of our strikers who are not only performing for their teams but are playing in a more competitive league than him.
    So for any player(s) who is dreaming of featuring for the Super Eagles, they have to be patient and keep on performing at a high level in order to even stand a chance of making the team.

      @Sportsfan… really? Dennis should score more goals and like Awoniyi not think of Super Eagles yet? Hahahaha… Our bias as Nigerians is the reason we will continue to borrow billions of Euros to build railways to Niger republic.

      I thought doing well and good for a premiership team like Dennis and Awoniyi are doing is already water-tight reason to earn Super Eagles callup in line with top 5 league status? Some people here like our CSN GOCs(General Officer Commanding duo of @Ayphillydegreat and @Dr.Drey) have even gone further in the past to state here that people like Musa don’t even need to be active to play for Super Eagles… hahaha.

      Emmanuel Dennis should score 10 in EPL and convince the world just like Awoniyi should do before they get a lookin. Welldone… the day we stop bias and favoritism is the day we will start winning tournaments like Afcon again.

      The problem with Nigeria is that our problems stare in the face, we have the resources and know how to apply it for progress but we will lie to ourselves and not solve them…

      @Sportsfan, if you are the player, in Dennis, Awoniyi and Nwaekeme’s position and you are told to continue doing well for your club and not think of the national team and maybe then, you will get a callup, how would you feel?

      Dennis was always a good guy and very manageable, sometimes coaches just misapply their authority to turn players to rebel… If not that Onuachu was calm even though evidently frustrated by the transfer antics of Genk, he would have been labeled an ingrate and a stubborn player… Dennis was disrespected before his team mates and humiliated and he saw that the club Brugge was being selfish even though good transfers were tabled by Atalanta and Leeds… they refused and continue holding out for almost €25mille at the height of covid…

      The player saw that as a case of the club wanting their price at the expense of his own sporting development, when all the cookies then crumbled, was it not €5/6mille that he was to be later sold to Watford?

    His playing style reminds me of SiaOne during his playing days. Skillful, daring, with an eye for goals. IMHO I think he can be an option in our attacking midfield position. He plays more on the left side of attack for Watford which gives him the chance to take on defenders and can also deliver killer passes. And also creates space to score goals.

    On the wings for the SuperEagles he’s got Chukwueze, Kalu, Simon, Ejuke, Musa, Onyekuru and possibly Iwobi to contend with. However, if he can show consistency in the Premier League only Chukwueze will be ahead of him as he’s already a member of the current SuperEagles.

    He’s the kind of player who can give us some real depth in the attacking midfield position because of his ability to dribble and hold off players with an eye for a killer pass at any given time and he’s also a real goal threat. Options aplenty let’s see how things unfolds in the nearest future. #FLY LIKE AN EAGLE INTO THE FUTURE#

    • Spot on @ Aphillydegreat on that likeness to Samson Siasia. Very very similar in style n panache.

    • JimmyBall 1 month ago

      Musa and Onyekuru should not be ahead of Ejuke and Dennis if we are considering profile of wingers for Super Eagles… in my opinion, then one has to be bold to ask what Musa and Onyekuru roles should be going forward in Super Eagles… Musa had 4/10 in his last set of callups and already has close to 100caps… I would suggest if he eventually closes up the 100cap he should be celebrated and asked to take a bow…
