    osihmen and Ndidi have proven strong and consistent in this modern days football, I urge iwobi iheanacho and chukueze to follow, in their ways, osihmen have something similar to oshoala, they both are world class strikers and they are pushing harder it shows that there is a target inside their spirit and mind and that target is bigger than just being Africa player of the year.
    osihmen Ndidi and oshoala have raised the level of our football status, osihmen is among top ten strikers of world football so as Ndidi is among top ten DM in the world, oshoala is among top ten female strikers of the world, chukueze for me is also among top ten wingers in modern football but just need a little consistency, iheanacho and iwobi can also get to that level if they put their mind to it, it’s nice to see our players getting to great levels, it happens to our music industry and football is following, God bless Naija

      Amen, thank you my brother, and same to you, we will witness the day Nigeria will lift the world cup.

  • Osimhen is a modern day striker with good feet and great pace but he needs to add more muscles and weight because sometimes defenders result to bullying him physically inorder to checkmate him….I noticed it in his game against Juventus and Roma…chielini and Pellegrino where no match for him but they made sure they bullied him and neutralized his pace….he should also work on his temperament,he should ignore those hard and unfair tackles he receives, referee will do his job as long as you call his attention to it a rolling on the ground like most European players.
