    The much overhyped Kalu still has to develop his decision making… Iheanacho had a good game Simon still getting back to fitness Henry onyekuru suffered from lack of supply John Ogu has always been good but yet ignored by the sentimental chief coach. Iwobi gone awol I hope he makes the qualifying game no comments on Ighalo our coach will one day tell us what’s up after receiving sack later
