    Williams is a good player and a deadly finisher. Dangerous to underrate him. He is hungry and wants to prove himself. Playing Nigeria is a wonderful opportunity for him to announce himself to the football world. He will do everything in his power to make a name for himself.
    The problems he has are:
    1) Can his S/L team mates give him the kind of service he routinely gets at his club?
    The same problem Lewandowski has with Poland. He is one of the world’s best at Bayern because of the quality surrounding him and their football philosophy, but with Poland, it’s a different story. Not the same quality available, and different football philosophy.
    2) He is coming face to face with battle-hardened Nigerian defenders who have done well against some of the world’s deadliest forwards in the recent past. Williams will be hoping to catch them on an OFF DAY, so he can do some damage at their expense.
    It’s a big challenge for Williams. Nigeria awaits.
