    No doubt lookman is the hottest striker this season for Nigeria. He is known for scoring against big opposition morning the greay Osi and Boniface.ladt season he scored against juventus Milan and inter even against Napoli. No nigeria player is a big player occasion like him. He looks uncommitted with his play probably because of his simple free play.he plays from the wings and middle. A giant killer born player. Not a gragra type. Lookman you need to start scoring in Eagles, I understand your likes can’t perform well in a team that has no pattern or direction like eagles otherwise people with no football eyes will see you as useless. My prayer is that the coach will come up with a pattern that will make our players excel nationally

  • Super Eagles’ bane is the Coach not the players

    What the heck just happened to Bayern?
    Kane and company on the wrong end of a wotowoto.
    Bruised, battered and shattered 5-1 by Eintracht Frankfurt.
    Incredible good fortune for Leverkusen. Bayern were supposed to have won this game and gone level with them at the top of the table!

    Good game by Lookman. Two well taken goals.
    How about the backheel goal by Muriel? Similar to Jimenez’ goal against Nottingham Forest.
    Former Aston Villa striker and Belgian legend Luc Nilis also scored a backheel goal like this. Great technique.

  • At Atalanta he plays through the middle either as a main striker or support striker whwreas in the SE, he is mainly deployed as a winger even when Osimhen is not playing.This is not his strength.

    So yes, the coach should deploy a system that plays to the players strengths instead of forcing players into pattern that are not working.That is the big difference between our players in their clubs and the SE

    Lookman can be our joker in the AM position behind Osimhen. Iwobi on the right side of midfield in a 4-2-3-1. Iheanacho and Chukwueze as options anywhere in the forward role. Sadiq and Boniface too as viable options. A solid goalkeeper and great CB combo. I think our wingbacks are intact Aina and Zaidu. No better option. Ndidi must be fit or else we’re doomed in midfield. Let’s see the squad list first before all sorts, shapes and forms of insults from irate fans begins Lemaooo!!
