    I would say a brilliant no look cheeky pass from Tielemans and a great chip by Iheanacho to continue his impressive form in front of goal.
    Nacho’s form has come at a good time when super eagles first choice centre forward is struggling for form.Besides Nacho is an experienced international,he’s dependable and efficient in front of goal.
    Apparently,our best strikers at the moment are Nacho,Sadiq Umar,Onuachu and Terem Moffi.Of this four,three will be called up for the very important nation cup playoffs Later this month,a big headache for the gaffer I don’t envy his job right now.But If I should give my opinion I would leave Paul Onuachu.

      God bless you, I’m glad you greatly highlighted what most do not see of this guy, most especially his combination with Iwobi, they both thrive together as a result of their outstanding skillset and great understanding they share btw each other. I will advocate and wish for this combination but its left for our gaffer to do what he feels is the best for the country as we hope to bring down the squirrels.

        [email protected] E Samuels.If we should take a trip down memory lane when we played against Zambia away in the world cup qualifier to Russia.The combination of in form Mikel,Iwobi and Iheanacho was a beauty.
        I love the ease they strolled into the Zambian defence with flamboyance.The one two touch the amazing confidence these three displayed in that game was amazing!they entertained the crowd with great panache.
        I would love to see Iwobi,Nacho and the Rangers form of Aribo tear down Benin republic in similar style,with Sadiq Umar leading the attack but if Osimhen has fully recovered his all action style will cause the Beninoise defence a lot of problem.

          My thinking too Umar will make it impossible to curtail all of them because they all possess crazy trickery ability. It will be hell to deal with all at once as their movements and trickery will be too much to understand. Naija has weapons o this is exactly what Ronaldo de lima said recently.

  • I Agree with You Greenturf.. Absolutely.Iheanacho’s Form and Confidence Continues To Grow.Sadiq,Kelechi and Terem Will Be Very Effective

    This is beginning to look like the Iheanocho of old. Good news for the Super Eagles!

    What about maja, it’s no joke playing regularly in an epl side.. He scored few days ago and it was wrongly called off… Our best strikers according to current form iheanacho, maja,onuuchu, etc. Oshimen is not playing yet

    • Greenturf 1 year ago

      A good striker no doubt but don’t you think we need to see him in more games?yeah he scored a brace in his debut,a disallowed goal doesn’t count I’m afraid.
      Maja wasn’t successful at Bordeaux hence his move to Fulham.His coach at Bordeaux lost faith in the young forward.Now he has a chance in a modest English club to lighten up his career,i would suggest he’s observed right to the end of the season before deciding whether he has done well enough to warrant a super eagles chance or not.Just my opinion though
