    Very good news!A very important player for the super eagles.In his absence Bruno Onyemaechi showed convinction,should be proud of his performances which i would rate 7/10.
    However,all in all i think Sanusi edges Bruno in quality though both aren’t far apart which makes having both left fullbacks available is good for the super eagles giving Peseiro quality options in that department.
