Former Nigerian midfielder, Daniel Amokachi believes Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has failed to utilize the true potential of Paul Onuachu in the team.
Onuachu is currently the best Nigerian player in Europe after scoring 25 goals in 29 games in all competitions in Europe for Onuachu.
Despite been compared to former Nigerian striker, Victor Agali due to his gangling nature and aerial prowess, Amokachi, insisted that Onuachu deserved to spearhead Super Eagles attack ahead of the team’s 2021 Africa Nations Cup qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho.
“Paul Onuachu has a better chance to spearhead the attack for Nigeria,” the 1996 Olympic gold medalist said, as per Today.
“He’s the only one, and that’s if the coaching crew knows how to use him.
“What Onuachu is experiencing in the Super Eagles was what Victor Agali faced during his time in the team.
“We didn’t use him well. He was scoring goals when he was in Germany, but the pattern of play in the Eagles did not suit him.”
