    Well don. Meanwhile, Emmanuel Dennis with a fine finish. He’s also won a penalty for his team.

    Aribo!!!!!! One of Coach Rohr’s handiwork/Product. Good to know that all of them are doing well in Europe. #Legacy

    And Dennis sustained a possible hamstring injury, substituted at 72 mins, hopefully not so serious to affect his chances for AFCON. Wishing him quick recovery.

    Okoye also to injured with what looked like a shoulder injury and replaced at 24 mins of the match, clean slate before the injury against Ajax who eventually beat them 1:0 in the match, hopefully they will both recover to be fit for the pre-afcon trining camp

    Dennis scored..
    Awoniyi won a penalty (after a great run beating three markers)..
    Hopefully the new coach will not be as bias as Dumbo Scam Roar..

      Hope u will not drink otapiapia when rohr leads us to nations cup

  • Aribo is beung played out of position in the Super Eagles. He should be in the attacking midfield position where he can join the Super Eagles attack at will because he is a goal threat. He shouldn’t be asked to sit back in the defensive midfield and try to be creative from there. When he joined the Super Eagles we saw what he could do when he played in ab advance position but since then its been deep lying midfield position for him. If I had my way he would play more advanced position in midfield so he can join the attack often. Then I would play mdidi and etebo as a midfielder pivot. If iwobi is fit enough, he will operate on the wings. Then lets see what happens. Although now with etebo injured we would need another ball playing holding midfielder.
