Am not surprised to see Joe Aribo name in the list. Dude has scored 3 goals in 4 matches for Rangers Fc. He is tall, quick, strong, tackles hard, very good offensively and defensively, has energy to burn, has a sweet left foot and he knows how to hit the back of the net.
At last maduka okoye has gotten his chance, let's see what he has to offer in the goalkeeping department. One day goal keepers like Sébastien Osigwe and Nwokolor will have their chance.
Ezenwa cannot be the best we have in the NPFL, let other have their chance too from the NPFL.
Tyrone Ebuehi is a lad full of potential but injuries won't let him be. When I see Liverpool RB Arnold do his thing, I always remember Ebuehi. We hope and pray Injury doesn't Mar his career, dude plays intelligently.
With the addition of a Lookman Ademola after his switch, we will be more deadlier in attack from the flanks.
