Super Eagles Invitee Yusuf Bags Third Consecutive Assist As Royal Antwerp Draw Again

Yusuf’s Nigerian teammate Chidera Ejuke was also in action for Royal Antwerp and played for 90 minutes.

With Westerlo 2-1 ahead and just five minutes left to play Yusuf, who came on in the 63rd minute, set up former Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld to make it 2-2.

Royal Antwerp have now drawn their last two games and are unbeaten in six straight games (four wins and two draws).

The Belgian champions are fifth on 32 points in the league table.

Yusuf is part of the Super Eagles’ 40-man squad for the AFCON 2023 in Côte d’Ivoire.

    That is the Nigerian Ngolo kante, the guy will add quality to our midfield, he is very quick in is distributions and quick in recovery, i hope he make the afcon squad

    I think he is a great addition to Super Eagles, cause SE need strong and strict defensive midfielder, so Peseiro must summon him in final 27 players’ list.

    We really need midfielders who can create goals. A six men midfield group of Iwobi, Ndidi, Onyeka, Yusuf, Onyedika, and Osayi-Samuel will be great for the AFCON.

  • Yusuf is really needed in that SE midfield…..More energy,more pace,more interceptions,…..Ndidi should be moved forward to assist the attack and younger and more energetic midfielder like Yusuf should be in the defensive midfield role…..Aribo should be dropped because he is match rusty and unfit.

      @Akp hat do you mean by Aribo is match rusty . A guy that has played 16 matches in this season unless what i read in complete sport yesterday was untrue.

    U need Aribo way more than Onyedika, I don’t see Onyedika doing anything, drop Onyedika for Yusuf.
