    Guy!!! You seriously don’t need any soothsayer or prophet to tell you where your promise land is.
    Now now you have been able to produced two goals. You might have gotten to your promise land just keep the fire burning.

      But he equally did well in Belgium.So you guys are wrong with your impression on Onyekuru.He may have had a difficult time in Monaco probably could have performed incredibly with a different team in France or playing in another top 5 European league.

      Greenturf Henry’s mentality aside Gala is the problem and nothing else.

    Monaco coach is the problem. They wanted to kill his carrea there. Onyekuru is very talented he proved it with the supereagles, among the strikers that was given opportunities prio to 2019 afcon, onyekuru performed better, scored two goals and an assist, did very well against egypt in frendlies, even osihmen and chukwueze didnt perform better than onyekuru, i was surprise how rohr rendered him useless in that turnament, he could have done better than moses simon who was consistently confused with the ball and couldnt achieve one dribble all through his numerouse games. I think onyekuru is doing well with galatasary becos of the confidence he gets from the coach and fans, turkish league is not easy aswell, victor moses, emenike and manyothers failed in turkey where onyekuru won titles with huge impact, i pray he get back to his highest form, its not about the league its about the club, salah and debron was nt good enough for chelsea but they have won premieleague titles with other teams.

      Thank you for pointing out the truth @Collins id.

      We don’t like to say the truth in this our country called Nigeria.

      How many minutes Onyekuru played against Algeria?

      He had a chance almost immediately he came in that match.

      The gaffer brought him against Algeria for how many minutes? Samething with Simy Nwakwo and Dessers.

      We are still expecting other new players to join Super Eagles but my big concern is that instead of giving these new players 20-30 minutes to show their talents but I’m pretty sure that they can only get 5 to 10 minutes of action which is nothing to me.

      Many of the followers of our national coach won’t like what both of us are saying today but we can’t keep deceiving themselves.

      Onyekuru is a very talented player that deserves some minutes in Super Eagles matches.

      Dessers also needs the help of the gaffer but it looks like they are forcing Dessers on the coach.

      We have so many options of players to choose from but Eagles is lacking in terms of coaching crew.

      No matter how great our players may be without an expert with the team, Eagles can’t do anything.

      The results are there if you in doubt my people. We have players but we don’t have a team we can Super Eagles team.

      We have players but to form a solid team shouldn’t be a problem now.

      We have so many great young goalies still, they wanted to bring Akpeyi back into the team. Can you imagine that?

      Amaju will run away from our football sooner or later and Nigerians will fight their battles alone in the end.

      I appreciate the manager in terms of man management which is the only aspect of the game that our ingenious coaches are lacking till today.

      Truth is bitter. God bless Nigeria!!!

      Hehehehehe…..all the 4 coaches Onyekuru has played under at Monaco hate him so much…that was why they kicked him out of the team. What an excuse. @Jimmyball come and carry your disciples o. Each one comes in, plays him for a few games, drop him to the bench and then out of the squad completely….same trend…all 4 of them.
      So Onyekuru was ahead of Osimhen and Chukwueze b4 afcon but those 2 overtook him during and after AFCON…but I thought Gernot Rohr already knows his first team……LMAO…so how come new players come and relegate those who were starting b4 to the bench…??? LMAO. How come Okoye has suddenly bcom our No 1 goalie…how come Sanusi seems to have snatched the no 3 shirt from Collins….how come Aribo seems to have become untouchable in the SE midfield. Lolz….LMAO
      If you love Onyekuru, so much better advise him to work on his attitudinal problems. This coach is this…that coach is that…this one doesnt play me on “my preferred” left wing (I no know say na player dey dictate to coach now)….than one knows his starting XI….that one wants to be my manager…..that one doesn’t greet me well. (Even C.Ronaldo no get this kind wahala to handle). Otherwise he should just remain with Galatasaray for the rest of his career since that is the only place where they worship him like a god.
      By the way…Emenike and V.Moses NEVER struggled in Turkey…they were key players and constant regulars in a big team like Fernabache.
