    lets admit it Iheanacho is in decline….I read comments here of guys saying Iheanacho is not doing well because he is being played out of his natural position…. well Rodgers played him as a 10(behind Vardy- and we saw how terrible he was get giving bad passes to Vardy………….I don’t see Rohr picking Iheanacho over Sadiq Umar
    Some of you guys need to outgrow u17 heroics…..some even said Nwankali is Nigeria’s best mildfielder atm….guess what? Baba will play in Spain 3rd div(loan) next season

      That’s the problem with most Naija soccer fans they never want to admit the truth. Iheanacho has been on a decline no be today. U17 he was great but after he left manchester city he hasn’t performed like he he used. Today’s match was a very bad performance….misplaced passes and missed 2 clear chances. Missing goalscoring opportunities is now synonymous with Iheanacho but the truth is you can’t give what you don’t have.

    Footballers normally get better as their age increases but iheanacho own in the opposite. Chukwueze won man of the match today despite villareal lost, meen dat guy is a killer desease, he can humble any one in front him, i wish iheanacho could copy chuks moves and add it to his quality shooting skills.
