  • It’s quite exciting to learn that international matches are here again. More exciting is the fact that Super Eagles games against top African footballing nations as Tunisia and Ivory Coast have their confirmation. Like me, I’m pretty sure many soccer loving fans cannot wait to see the SE again in action after such a long time. The prospect of the games with the Carthage of Tunisia and the Elephant of Cote D’lvoire present the SE’s team coach, Rohr, an opportunity to experiment with new recruits and exciting youngsters as Ovie Ejaria, Bazee Noah, Zaidu Sanusi, Madu Okoye, Cyril Desserts, Dennis Emmanuel Bonaventure, Kingsley Ehizhie, to mention just a few. There is no better time to show off our emerging youngsters than now with such a pool of amazing talents to choose from. It’s also hoped that fringe players like Mikel Agu, Maja Josh çand hardworking Kelechi Nwakali would get opportunity to prove their quality after times of being ignored, while notable names as Osimhen, Eagles’ poster boy, Chukwueze, Simon, Iwobi, Ajayi, Awaziem, Ekong, Ndidi, all get their chances in the October friendlies.
    With the quality of the oppositions, soocer fans are poised to see some exciting football actions.

     
    • Wow Fidelenny, the anticipation is unbearable. I can’t wait to see the Super Eagles back in action; to see what the new recruits have to offer and how they blend with established players. I see fun times ahead. 🙂

    … Let’s begin to make overtures towards Josh Onomah of Fulham FC, he has been promoted to EPL with them and to God that guy is a baller and a midfield finished product… I watched him play and with U-20 WC with England in 2017 and Ovie Ejaria sat the bench for him. Walahi I would not say Ndidi is a better ball-player than Onomah. The sooner we approach him the better as his game is very mature before England begins turn his head because for sure he will light up the EPL as he is a starter for Fulham and signed permanently for them because he was not given game time at Spurs… I will sound it again, Josh Onomah is a finished midfield item. He will. Compliment Ndidi better than Etebo for now and if he plays in the EPL then he is definitely going to rate better than Ejaria for assessment in One to two years… Onomah is a well-rounded midfielder with good passing range and skillset… Super Eagle fans lets push his name… NFF over to you.

     
    • Na God know wetin indidi do you

        … Read someones comment and understand them before commenting, did you read where I said Josh Onomah can compliment Ndidi better? Don’t you think we need more competition in midfield if we get obvious quality we can approach?

         
        • Sorry for that…Was a little bit confused when you said and I quoted… “walahi I would not say Indidi is a better ball player than Onomah”. And I remembered you(as a former midfielder) once talk against indidi here.
          So no vex.

    Josh Onomah. That boy is a baller. A box to box midfield lynchpin. Would definitely be a good addition to our midfield. At least, let’s give him a chance to fight for his place. He’s definitely worth a try.
    Imagine a midfield of Ndidi, Aribo, Iwobi, Ejaria, Etebo, Onomah. Now, this is the kind of quality that can shake the world at major tournaments.

    Invite this, invite that, invite invite invite…..
    Is it every player that a coach must invite???

    Let the ones on ground blend with the former first b4 bringing new faces into that midfield….

    We are yet to test EJARIA to see who among the quotet of NDIDI, ETEBO, IWOBI or ARIBALL he can complement and play smoothly….

    At first We tested ARIBALL with ETEBO and IWOBI and he played well….
    Later it was NDIDI, ARIBALL and IWOBI….

    We realise that ARIBALL plays or performs well with the former than the combination of NDIDI-IWOBI….

    This is how it suppose to be done with EJARIA b4 thinking of ONOMAH….

    MY OWN OPINION THOUGH….

    If Onomah can add quality to the present squad, I don’t see why he shouldn’t be invited. I’ve watched him play, and I am of the opinion that the lad is good enough to compete with the guys we currently have. Check his youtube videos. Granted, youtube videos are not always the best way to judge a player’s worth, but in some cases, you see flashes of brilliance that can’t be ignored.
    Currently, we have 5 world class midfielders, in my opinion. Ndidi, Aribo, Iwobi, Ejaria and Etebo. If Onomah is good enough to be added to this list, which I think is the case, then Nigeria benefits! There are others like Nwakali who are coming up as well. My point is I would like us to get to a point where our subs are just as good as the starters. Let’s get the strongest bench possible.
    If we don’t invite quality players when we have the chance, and they go on and impress and other countries get interested, wetin we go talk then? Invite this, invite that will change to had we known? How we wish? Let us make hay while the sun shines. If the sun sets, opportunity to make hay is gone!

     
  • I wonder what would happen if the likes of akpoguma, uduokhai, torunigha decide to play for the super eagles. I guess it will be see you later for players like omeruah, awaziem, ajayi since Rohr prefers players who play in Germany. These players will just sit in a back three formation with zaidu and ehizibue deployed as wing-backs. The midfield will comprise of Ndidi, Aribo And either of Eze or Ejaria. The forward two will be Osimhen and either of Iheanacho or chukwueze. But I would rather use iheanacho because of his crisp through passes and sublime finishing. The goalie position is anyones guess. So far no one has done enough to justify their owning the number 1 Jersey.
    Subs should include: Ekong, chukwueze, aina, (two goalies), awaziem, Ejuke/kalu, desser/simy, mikel agu/Ramon, Iwobi/Etebo, simon/Musa.
