    He is surely good…needs more time with the super eagles to gel with the team philosophy.

    As far as attackers are concerned Nigeris is spoilt for choice. The Super Eagles defence is well-manned. Doubts over the midfield and goalkeeping persist.

  • GentleD 2 years ago

    Hmm! “Spoilt for choice”. Na so, it was really evident at AFCON that we are indeed spoilt for choice

    • Yes spoit with strikers, at least four strikers were absent from SE squad in Cameroon. Defence and goalkeeping area need reevaluating

    • Mahmud Shuaib 2 years ago

      Oga, all our strikers scored at Afcon! Aside Cameroon, pls mention any country that their three main strikers all scored at the AFCON (ESPECIALLY among the teams who crashed out in the group stages and second round)!

      Haba! That’s even considering the fact that aside IHEANACHO, AWONIYI and SADIQ were making their first ever STARTS in a SE jersey at the competition. Infact SADIQ arrived late and had less than 3 days of full training with the team. That they both missed glaring chances were testament that contrary to wide held belief; that team created TONS of chances! Creativity was thus never a major problem.

      Infact am salivating at the prospect of that team playing together for much longer period. They will be difficult to beat.

        So it is no more a crime for a striker to miss GLARING CHANCES. All I can say is God help Super Eagles against Ghana in the play-offs.

          Read properly for better compression pls. I said “that the strikers missed glaring chances was TESTAMENT TO CREATIVITY…” Emphasis obviously was on CREATIVITY here.

          World best IGHALO was a serial misser of sitters. Infact game to goals ratio for SE; Awoniyi and Sadiq are better than him.
