  • Hope he recovers in time for the final. Villarreal need their best players in the final against a strong man utd team. The Super Eagles dont have any serious games for the next 3 months, so his absence wont be felt there. I wish him a speedy recovery.

    For me, based on this season performance, our best wingers are:Chukwueze and Moses Simon. Chukwueze on the right while Moses Simon on the left.

    Moses is a complete footballer, he can score, assist, defend and create chances. A great team player. Despite his injuries this season still has the best stats of our wingers in the top 5 league. He is more business like and not given to show boating. His absence was greatly missed by his club while his presence gives them hope in their Relegation fight.
    For Chukwueze has greatly improved in his decision making and final ball under Unary his current coach. I wish him quick recovery and really want to see him in the Europa final.

    So others like Ejuke, Henry and Kalu (who need special prayers cos of continuous injuries) will form a competitive bench. Then when Lookman comes the competition will be even more tight for starting shirt.
