Former Nigeria international Ifeanyi Udeze has advised Paul Onuachu on how to bring his club scoring form to the Super Eagles.
Onuachu, who made his Eagles debut in 2019, has scored just one goal in six appearances.
His only goal for the Eagles, which was scored within the first ten seconds of the game, and the fastest ever scored for Nigeria, was in a 1-0 win against Egypt in a friendly game last year.
But it is a stack difference compared to his form at Belgian side Genk where he has netted 17 goals in 30 appearances.
And speaking on Brila FM, Udeze said Onuachu’s Eagles teammates have a big role to play to improve his goals return in the team.
“Paul Onuachu is a good player, he has the height of Nwankwo Kanu and Victor Agali,” the Korea/Japan 2002 World Cup star said.
“He scores with his head and leg but mostly he like to score with his head.
So with the form he has in his club he should bring it to the national team because we want to see him score goals.
“We’ve seen him play but we don’t see the goals as expected from him (with the Eagles). This time if he gets the opportunity I pray he uses it well. And how will he use it well, he should tell his Super Eagles teammates how he want to be served.
“He should practice it in training and tell them how he likes it when inside the box so that they will serve him. If he doesn’t tell them they won’t serve him well, he needs to score goals because he is a striker. So I pray when he gets the opportunity he should use it well.”
Onuachu is part of Gernot Rohr’s 24-man squad for the 2021 AFCON double header against Sierra Leone.
His last outing for the Eagles was in their 1-0 defeat to Algeria, in last month’s international friendly in Austria.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
