    This guy deserve another opportunity with the team.. if a Sadiq and olayinka are getting caps for the super eagles , it will be so unfair this man isn’t getting any..

    He has been consistent for many years in turkey and has been getting the goals.

      Well said @ Ololo. I struggle to understand why a player like Nwakeme will continue to be overlooked. He n Osimene are about our only forward players that have got that intimidating built defenders hate to come against. Well, too many options and as such really hard to fault the coaches

      • Ugwudede 2 years ago

        and he can compliment Osimehen because he plays 11 for his club and both with intimidating figure can be a huge problem for opposing defenders.

    Me sef wonder tire who dis Nwakaeme offend for NFF. If he like make he scored 100 goals per season dem still no o look him side. Na wa o.

  • In the same league. Nwakaeme or Musa? no contest.

    Musa is just taking up space in the Super Eagles. Until we call players up on merit we do not deserve any success.

    This man has 9 all over him. Scored 9 goals, has 9 assists. Scored 9 minutes into stoppage time and his club has won the last 9 games. So therefore, he should come and strike for Naija ( Top 9).

      You have an eye for rhythm and poetry. I wish the NFF has such qualities. They are so discordant in their decisions. Many fans have warned that they ditch the quota system of player invitations. . . but for where? Dem no go listen.

      Based on merit, this guy should be in.

    Anthony is so Good that he was honored with a look alike giant artwork in a city in turkey. In Turkey he is one of the dominant players with high pressing ability and match influencer. We need him right about now that he’s inform.

    • Igbekun Abo 2 years ago

      Nice one @Chima. Nwakaeme is a very good striker. If the NFF forgive him maybe he will return to play for Nigeria.

    They will not invite him, he has no Godfather, then again is from the south we have enough players from the southern part already, they will invite Musa and Sadiq to balance the equation. Sorry Nwankaeme next life choose a meritocracy country.. to some people who lives in denial truth is bitter.
