From what i saw at the under 20 competition, Udoh is not yet good enough for the super eagles. I would have preferred someone like Dennis drafted in.

The games are meaningless, why not try out fringe players?

Rohr is gonna be using the two games as build ups towards the AFCON. He knows over 90% of his squad already and obviously doesn't want to go into a wide chase.

Who's there to nod?

The only good nodders we have in SE are Osimhen and Ekong


Ekong is average at best but crossing doesn't always have to result in headers.

I don't agree with this. We will not have that many games to try out new players. These are the games we must take advantage of. Our goalkeeping department is stale. Why not invite another goalie and see him in training? The new goalie does not have to play but you can get a glimpse of his quality.

It does not mean, he should change his team. 2-3 fringe players will not hurt.

We may not also have that many games with which to blend the team either. You should know Rohr by now. He only gradually infuses new players . At least u have seen Onuachu and Ozornwafor as the newest inclusions. A few others will likely get called up in subsequent friendlies.

He has adopted consistency while gradually infusing new players. Not a bad approach IMHO.

He may actually chose to start a couple of fringe players particularly against the Seychelles.

What exactly did Iwobi did yesterday? I thought he received an elbow to his nose and touched his nose to check for blood...or maybe he covers his mouth to conceal his lips.

You have to target a person when crossing otherwise it will be easily cleared by the opponent

Imagine Victor Moses crossing 100 balls, 98 will be easily cleared

Their form in the Europa has been near perfect though.

It's amazing that Victor Moses is the worst crosser of the ball I've ever seen, and he's a winger which is his primary job grin

So do you think Leicester were playing kick and chill when Mahrez was there?

No not all, infact he was outstanding that's why the creme de La creme of Europe were queuing up to buy him.

For the most part of the season their defending was not good enough for a much improved la liga but they are getting it together and the proof is the pudding. Their only problem is that Valencia is equally much improved but I believe they have better depth.

Samu resting was massive for them and I back him to kick on from now till the end of the season
