    Please what is the excuse for not inviting you. First you have a captain that hasn’t played in months. You have benchwarmers playing for there clubs. But yet you not eagles material

      … @Kenneth. Better watch it o. You must not talk about quintessential Ahmed Musa in relation to Simmy Nwankwo before cursers rain insults on you o. They don’t want honest opinions here. You see how they ridiculed Emmanuel Amuneke for suggesting we should give Junior Ajayi another chance in the future…

      • Abeg @JimmyBall no mind dem all of dem, nah Mediocre brains full their yeye heads.. All they want is a team full of yeye low league PAST GLORY PLAYERS

  • Simy is the main striker and goal outlet for his team crotone, he scored 20 goals last season in the serie B, he has been playing with the team for a while so they understand him and know how he plays. And I believe this is not simy’s first time playing in serie A.
    Osimhen just signed for Napoli, a team with a lot of star players, this is his first time playing in serie A, he is still adjusting to how his team plays and I believe the other players are yet to fully support him in the team. He works very hard to get the ball to them and also takes most of the attention of their opponents on himself which allows his teammates score but they don’t do likewise for him. A former Napoli player has advised him to be more selfish with the ball and go for goal when he has the ball. I think this is a good idea and it will help him score more goals.
    So lets not start comparing stats for now.

  • I really like what simy is doing in crotone. His team might be the weakest team in seria A this season, with the poorest defensive players but somehow he is getting among the goals, 3 already. If he keeps this up he might get a better deal to play in a better club. He is good with the ball on his feet, and good in the air. A proven goal scorer with serie A experience. He is good to go.
    And who knows maybe he will get another chance to play for the Super eagles again.

    Samy has scored against big teams like juventus and atlanta which is good for his confidence. We can nurture him instead of onuachu who doesnt seem to dovetail with the S.E playing style
