Finidi's invitation of Awaziem seems like he prioritises ball possession.

Awaziem is one of our bests when it comes to making good passes of the ball.

Awaziem is very good when it comes to making clearances of the ball, insomuch that his ball clearances in many instances of it look like a long pass to a team mate because he is good with long passes.
Hmmm oga Meli,Awaziem don join dem Nwakali,Ejuke,Chuckwueze,Iheanacho......well I love Awaziem style of play though career static

You're asking a known question

The plan is to market this players including sadiq to obscure leagues abroad and thereafter continue with another round of invitations like the likes of Stephen eze etc

This local coaches are good in this, it is a survival stinct

If not for the likes of rohr we won't have had so many of this foreign born players like Ademola,Aina etc playing for us today

Pasiero barely didn t discover any foreign born player for us except for Bright Osayi

I am watching what Finidi will do in that regard

Today we are hailing Ademola Lookman as our own but thanks to Rohr that convinced this boy to play for us years ago and I really wish we can get more of them into our fold


From CHAN competition we equally get some home based players too that can blend with the foreign born to make a formidable team

The bold is a figment of your imagination, everything is untrue.

Ademola made it clear at age 16 he wanted to play for Nigeria but was rejected in the screening organised in London for the NFF.

He played his last game for England U21 in 2019 and made it intrinsically clear he wanted to play for Nigeria. But it took the NFF several years to complete the due diligence required to complete change of allegiance with FIFA.

How would you compare Wayne Rooney of England, a country with verifiable records of births and deaths going back to at least 500 years back. Let Rooney look as old as Soyinka, his age is confirmed by the system, not how he looks. The reason is simple: the system is trustworthy and has been so for ages and not just for football but for all purposes.

Come down here. What's the system? Where are the verifiable records?
I don't understand how we know, we all know the kind of country we live in oo but when it comes to this age issue, we pretend that we are angels.

If not for technology, didn't we know how it used to be? Some years in the past, we got it right. Some years we didn't. Although it's gotten better since 2010.

So please we can look at a person's face in Nigeria and we can tell his age. Might not be a foolproof method but if we see the face of 17 or 20 years Olds in Nigeria, we know abeg.

Without deviating into politics.

We have very senior advanced political office holders where they don't know the primary and secondary school they attended and by default their date of birth.

Age cheating and creation is a national culture.

Don't these guys have advisers? France is stacked up. Look at Lookman today. Donning the GWG did him good. Olise should think ooo. To play for naija dey sweet oo. He should ask Plumptre

Who organized this screening, when was it organized, who were the players present alongside Ademola? where can we read about this screening? Finally, we want a source where Ademola said he wanted to play for Nigeria and was rejected.

Diaz is a benchwarmer at Madrid. Compared to Lookman at Atalanta, he isn't a vital cog in the Madrid team's starting XI.

forgiveness:


False statement, In the last 10 matches in Laliga, how times was he benched out of 10 that he didn't start?

I asked you this because of Doherty because he said the the only player there who later made a name was Michael Obafemi and that was for the 2015 U17 set. Ademola Lookman was never a member of that team, neither were you one of the organizers. Ejaria only partook in 2013 U17 screening and was supposed to go with Iheanacho and co to the U17 AfCoN and World Cup but he was excused during the AfCoN preparatory matches/ campings in Nigeria because they were affecting/clashing his studies at his club side.

There is no record of Lookman ever being a part of the Nigerian youth system both home and in the UK. Lookman's first involvement with Nigerian football was his debut for the Super Eagles.




So, you lied again.

Diaz played 31 la liga games and came from the bench 13 times. He started only 18 games. He averaged 51mins per game. How is that starter or influence material?

Lookman played 29 Serie A games, starting 20 of them and averaging an hour per game.


In the European Competitions, it is far worse.

Below is Lookman in the UEL 23/24 vs Diaz in UCL 23/24. EOD.

How about Tosin and Olise that the eagles need,
don't u think they should also indicate interest about playing for us,especially Tosin that is currently not playing for any of the English under age teams?

Don't tell me it's NFF's fault, because there is no way they must not have been approached to play for us at least once.
If they eventually fail to play for us,whose fault is it this time around, we or them?

Barca, Westham and Juventus interested in Ademola Lookman

West Ham will just be showing interest in Nigerian players above their status. We've happily allowed them go for Taiwo Awoniyi if they wish. Ademola should only play in Italy, maybe for Juventus or Inter Milan

David Moyes failed to realize early how important black players were for him. If only he had enough of them during his days in Manchester United he would have stayed longer. At Everton he had the likes of J. Yobo, Steven Pienaar, Yakubu Aiyegbeni.

At west Ham he has a plethora of black players and he is suddenly seeking for more black with a keen interest on it being a Nigerian player. For now Boniface and lookman are a bit above the club level.
