  • Doctor Koyemi Oderinde 3 years ago

    Simmy Nwankwo is far better than Paul Onuachu.

  • Omo9ja 3 years ago

    This is why I don’t think Oga is worthy of coaching the Super Eagles no more.

    He invited this Simy and wasted his time in the national team.

    I read a news on one sports site today that saying Oga Rohr is proposing to another young golie but how about those goalies he invited before now? They were not good enough or what?

    On the other hand, what did Simy, Sadiq, Adi have done to Mr. Rohr that one of these strikers are finding it difficult to play for Nigeria?

    They are putting Onuachu down each and every time and labeling him as a bad striker in the Super Eagles but wait a minute, how about Simy and Sadiq and other strikers?

    Are they bad too? Let’s call a spade a spade period.

    If the style of Onuachu is not working with the Super Eagles, Oga Rohr should try other strikers. That is simple to do now. Abi no be so ni kę?

    I understand what Oga Rohr is trying to do. He’s trying to have variety of strikers to choose from in the team but that doesn’t mean he should keeping wasting time on one striker.

    Since Onuachu style is not suitable for his tactics then, he should call on another striker kę.

    He has Simy against Argentina at the last world cup but he opted for Ighalo, in the end, we lost the match.

    He abandoned Simy in that tournament and after the tournament he refused to call him back.

    I hope we still remember Onyekuru ba? Yowa. What happened to him at the last Afcon?

    This is one of the reasons why I don’t support Oga Rohr to continued.

    Nonetheless, he waited so long on Ighalo, Osimeh and now Onuachu. Why is he too rigidi like that?

    Still, his fans believe he is not the problem Eagles is facing at the moment likewise president Buhari that some of us believe he’s still have something to offer Nigeria. Who is deceiving who?

    We don’t learn from the past mistakes and we are still making the same mistakes till today. NFF should get Amunike, Egbo, Enyeama and Ikeme on board to manage the Chan team.

    My point here is that we have players but it shouldn’t have taken Oga too long to build a solid team for us.

    We are not Lesotho and Togo. No disrespect to these countries but we are Nigeria.

    If at worst NFF have no trust in our ex players, NFF should hand over the CHAN team to Amunike, Egbo, Enyeama and Ikeme for a start.

    Let see what they can do with Chan team first which is B team. If the B team is stronger than A team which is Super Eagles within the short of period, I think Amunike, Egbo, Enyeama and Ikeme should be migrate to the Super Eagles team. I have been saying this almost every year but NFF keep ignoring this move.

    We can’t continue like this. NFF need to step up their game. Oga Rohr will keep inviting quality players into the Super Eagles but that is not enough.

    We are thirsty of not winning trophies.
    We are thirsty of not having a strong team under Oga Rohr.

    Bronze medals is nothing to Nigerians. Yes ww definitely deserves more from NFF and Oga Rohr from now on.

    Congrats to Simeon Nwankwo. I’m happy for him.

    I love Super Eagles and I hope you do too but we all need to do our very best this year to make Super Eagles stronger. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

  • Simy is making a statement for a recall to the National team. He has been playing regularly in the serie A this season and although his team has remained rooted to the bottom of the table, he has been doing his best to score goals.
    I read in another publication that taribo west said aina and ajayi should be starting games for the Super eagles because of their consistency in the premiership this season. If thats the case then simy also deserves a look in. I dont want to go into the fact that as consistent as these players have been, it hasn’t lifted their clubs from the bottom of the league table this season. I just want to focus on their playing regular football in a top 5 European league.
    7 goals so far this season should put simy up there on the list of strikers to be called up by the coach of the Super Eagles. After all, Osimhen (who is the Super Eagles number one striker) has scored just 2 goals this season and he plays in the same league as simy. If he will be invited then simy should also be considered.
