    27 goals in 30 games across all competition!wow amazing!stats like that normally should put anyone in strong position to start games for any national team well especially in Africa because of the league the goals were scored.
    Unfortunately that’s not the case for this beanpole striker what a shame.
    I could imagine,the reaction of most African football fans that one of Europe’s leading goalscorers not good enough for Nigeria.I bet they would wish he is from there country haha…oh dear,good for some indeed haha.

  • When he was invited , what did he do at the national team. Don’t let us be emotional about this decision. He was very poor in the the games he played for the national team. So what is this clamor about.

      Put all the blame for non-performance on Super Eagles duty squarely on the player… That’s Nigeria, the more you look, the less you see! Abracadabra!

      @Ayo I wasn’t clamouring for Onuachu,apparently,I am not one of his fans rather I was astounded that a 27 goalscorer in an ongoing season in Europe is not considered for a place in his national team in the African continent.Of course a large number of Nigerian football fans are aware the reason he’s not in the team and are very much okay with his omission despite the numerous goals he has put away so far,but someone from the continent would be amazed that Nigeria has that luxury of talent,whearas they would celebrate a player with that stats in there country.Why I said good for some.

    Hater’s go hug transformer
    The Guy has really done well for him self. Imagine 27 goals in 30 matches all through Rohr need to play him regularly in super eagle with good right and left wingers to supply him with crossing ball and passes.let us not pressure him in super eagle

  • Your 3 goals away from reaching my target for you of 30 or more goals in a season. I know you can do it. Your on your way. I just hope that when the time comes to choose a new club, you choose the one that plays to your strengths like genk and not the one that will try to make you into a different kind of player. Congratulations Paul onuachu, for giving a good account of yourself this season and flying the Nigerian flag high.

    Go and score 27 goals in EPL, Serie A, La Liga or Bundesliga then I will join the people that believed in your abilities as a prolific goal poacher otherwise Simy of Crotone with 12 goals, Sadiq Umar and Nacho are way above you based on where they play truth hurts for real and if you don’t get invited now you will later work on giving same thing you give at club to country and no one will doubt your inclusion in subsequent games.

    Nice one Paul.

    Once more I say a big congratulations to you Mr. Onuachu. Stay strong and stay focused, and Keep banging in the goals.

    Since the technically bereft technical crew of the Super Eagles led by Rohr see no cause to extend you an invite, remember that your career success is not tied to playing for the Nigeria. Again, put your head down, stay humble and stay focused. You are already a success!

      Shameless idiot. Dy there dy impersonate another person. You’re soo shameless that you feel so inferior and continued to hide your identity. This is the highest level of stupidity and foolishness I’ve ever seen in a public space. Anu offia

    • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

      Hehehehe…@Jimmyball…come and carry your people o. Ndi impersonators and fake Identity peddlers. Birds of the same feathers flocking together. That name Dr.Drey so much intimidates them they all wish they could be Dr.Drey….LMAO.

      The technically bereft Rohr took Onuachu to AFCON as 1st choice but he ended the tournament has 3rd choice. The 2nd choice became tournament top scorer and the 3rd choice is the current Top scorer in the AFCON qualifying series under this same technically bereft Rohr…..LMAO. Onuachu is still struggling to trap ball in a SE shirt…..LMAO. Clearly Onuachu’s success is not tied to Nigeria, same way Tosin Dosunmu, Joe Akpala and Peter Ijeh’s successes were not tied to Nigeria.

      Rohr might be technically bereft but he isnt as dumb as to name Ebeuhi and Sanusi in central defense and flank them with Chukwueze and Olayinka……LMAOOoooo.

      Congrats to onuachu, let him keep scoring. This current SE has no time to wait for no man. When you are ready to be an national team player pls let us know.

  • I didn’t watch the match, but it is very likely he scored the goal with his head or through penalty. For somebody that has scored 30-goals, 2-assist is just too paltry.
    Onuachu should learn how to use his legs better.
