At the Jan Breydelstadion, Raphael Onyedika put up a fine performance in Club Brugge’s 2-0 home win against Atletico Madrid.

Onyedika was in action for the entire duration of the game.

Ghana forward Kamal Sowah and Ferran Jutgla were on target for the hosts in the game.

In another game, Calvin Bassey had a torrid evening as Ajax were destroyed 6-1 by Napoli.

His compatriot, Victor Osimhen missed the game for Napoli as a result of injury.

    Napoli doing perfectly well without Osimhen.

    • I said it Osimhen needs to stop the shoulder Raising egotistical behaviour he has been showing. Becausse he may have just lost his place as a starting No. 9 just as he has lost his place as the star of the team to the Gerogian guy Khvara…. In life they say if you are not humble Life will teach you Humility.. Osimhen over to you now. Lets see if you can stop with the Social Media Memes and actually start scoring goals at a frightening nature.

        People like you are the reason he may be ‘raising shoulders’, if i were to use your words. Sometime last year you were wailing that instead of the then captain, Insigne, Osimhen should be saddled with the responsiblity of taking penalties ahead of senior players. Now you are saying he is raising egocentric shoulder. Ajala ta nna o? Thats hypocrisy in my opinion.

        • Elhaj Arafat 2 years ago

          @Muyiwa, this isn’t hypocrisy but really expressing it the obvious way it is. Osimhen has been struggling to convince since the start of the season as he is involved in some distractive acts such as the bruhaha with the elder sister and her husband over financial transactions, the training pitch duel with his team mate,, racist taunts, etc . Really he needs to focus on his job and shun distractions otherwise that unsung boy would take the shine away from his fledging career

          • @Elhaj Arafat thank you for stating the obvious that my comment meant no harm it is just a obvious word of encouragement to Osibobo who needs to focus on his career and be as serious and humble as european players e.g. a specific Haaland comes to mind who people in this forum know I have in the past stuck my head out and said that Haaland and Osimhen have the same ability, I am feeling alittle let down by Osimhen that is all. People in this forum know that Nobody has backed this boy pontential more than me..

            @MuYiwa yes I suggested that because of the huge belief i have in Osimhen but the way he is handling this lime light is similar to Balotteli and god forbid that I will want Osimhen to be another Balotteli. the Boy needs to tone it down and really ask himself what is more important focussing and working hard on being the best in his trade or focusing on Social Media and Nigerians will do well to call a spade a spade with this boy and stop the bias praise like they have done with Ahmed musa all his career and as we can see it did Musa no good in his career. Do we want Osimhen to be another Musa or Obafemi Martins?????????

  • I hope Peseiro will begin to work on the midfield as he is working on Goal keeping. Atleast 6 midfielders must be invited henceforth. Modern football is won from the middle.

  • The midfield is already working itself out.
    Indidi/ Raphael or Alhassan (as our defensive midfielder)
    According to their current form.
    Iwobi is our central (our pirlo) , he will just need to switch position with Aribo. Under Rohr and Other coaches, Aribo played behind Iwobi but this time, I’ll suggest Aribo play upfront the way he plays for Southampton. That’s all. Then may be we try and convince Eze and Olise to join them as we all know those two need serious competitions.  Then let our new Chairman arrange friendlies for us to blend the midfield that’s all. Iwobi and Aribo already have good understanding.
    And by now, I expect our coaches to be calling all goalkeepers they come across to the camp now, either he plays for reserve or division two or play in Tokyo  at least one will work one day. Bazunu was once an unknown league player, now, he plays Southampton (the guy should have been our number one by now)

     Okoye /Uzoho (as we never get other choice)
    Scouting report:
    Owen Goodman -Crystal Palace
    Noah Atubolu – Germany
    Keeper from Denmark 
    Arthur Okonkwo – Crewe Alexander

    Aina / Osayi-Samuel/ Ebuehi (Scouting report… Alex Agu)
    Akpoguma/Awaziem/Ajayi/ Bassey/
    Scouting Report:
    Mowit Celtic
    Torunarigha Kaa Gent (left)
    Udokhai , lefty but Injury prone  – Augusburg
    Adewoye The Netherlands
    Caleb Okoli (lookman to work on that)
    Zaidu (report Udogie)

    Indidi/ Alhassan/ Onyedika
    Lesley Ugochukwu Rennes
    Eze, Oliseh

    Lookman/Chukwueze/ Simon/ Ejuke/(may be Savior) i
    Kevin Schade – Germany

    Osimhen/ Moffi/ Dessers/Awoniyi/ Onuachu

    • Ugwudede 2 years ago

      As for me from what I saw alst night I will prefer Onyedika ahead of Ndidi

  • Monte 2 years ago

    Ghanaian players are doing very well. Kudus scored again, Sowah scored for club Brugge and Denis Odoi had a fantastic night

  • pompei 2 years ago

    When you score one, but your team was WOTOWOTIZED with 6 goals, is that doing well?
    Collecting 6 in front of your home fans is the stuff of nightmares. The Ajax coach wanted the ground to open up and cover him, but the ground refused. So he had to just stand there and take it on the chin. Ouch.

    • You are so funny!

      • pompei 2 years ago

        Hahaha, the poor guy looked nonplussed on the touch line.
        Total bewilderment.

    • Monte 2 years ago

      He’s scored in almost every champions league game he has played in this season. That’s even doing more than well. He can’t be a goal keeper, a defender, a midfielder and a striker at the same time. He’s done great in his position

  • pompei 2 years ago

    Alright then. Let him continue to “do well”, scoring goals and losing key games heavily.
