There are enough players in NPFL to replace ighalo and mikel(who to me are bang average)
Dont get carried away by ighalo's golden boot,he was awful in afcon and only other teams' lack of strikers aided his feat(pls dont call mane,salah cuz they were worse)
If u dont give players a chance u won't know if they are good enough
Fergie sold hughes,kanchelksis and ince and replaced em with scholes,butt and beckham
Man u fans were asking for his sack yet today those names are legendary in MUFC
Another bloke said the quality is not the same as in the 90's but that is a lie
Qualitycan never hide,it just needs nuturing and guidance instead of calling every foreign based nigerian

You have not named the players that will replace Ighalo

You are just belittling Ighalo

I am getting sick and tired of looking to lower tier leagues to fill in positions

Semilogo was very average in AFCON. Let us not populate the team with average players

Bournemouth are on the verge of completing the signing of Nigeria-eligible midfielder Philip Billing.

According to the BBC, The Cherries have agreed to sign the Denmark U21 international on a five-year deal for a transfer fee in the region of fifteen million pounds.

The future of Billing at Huddersfield has been the subject of much speculation following the demotion of the club to the Championship at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.

In addition, the 23-year-old has not enjoyed a good relationship with manager Jan Siewert since the German joined the club.

He made 91 appearances in total for The Terriers in all competition, including 43 in the Premier League and scored 6 goals.

Barring a last-minute change, the Nigeria Football Federation target will undergo a medical on Monday ahead of his unveiling by Bournemouth.

Dual-eligible trio Nnamdi Ofoborh, Jordon Ibe and Dominic Solanke have been training with Bournemouth's first team before the resumption of the new season.

Billing has clearly stated he is not a Nigerian

I wonder why you are focusing on him

I have been saying this for years here. I have even been tagged a local league player hater. This article from Colin Udoh is brilliant.

The next Mikel or Ighalo isn't going to come from Nigeria's league

While Cup Final weekend is upon Nigeria, as Kano Pillars go up against Niger Tornadoes to determine who wins the 2019 Aiteo Cup on Sunday, the talk is still on the Super Eagles' Afcon campaign.

Conversation in Nigeria remains centred on the future of coach Gernot Rohr as the team's failure to reach the continental final continues to enrage, but little has been said about the team itself. Specifically, the loss of key personnel.

And therein lies the crux of the matter. The Aiteo final, and the domestic season as a whole, has done little to showcase new talent, so where will Rohr, or the next coach, find players to replace the likes of John Obi Mikel and Odion Ighalo?

The combined retirements of captain Mikel and forward Ighalo have left two huge voids in the team. John Ogu is bound to follow suit soon, and it is possible that, being on the other side of 30, Leon Balogun is not far off. Surely there must be some concern about finding replacements?

Fans and media never seem to let up with telling Super Eagles coaches to pick players from the domestic league, with goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa the only regular home-based player in the side. But the fact remains that the NPFL has no real talent of international quality, and there is a huge body of evidence to support this.

Two wins in the CAF Champions League (both by Enyimba in 2003 and 2004) are a far cry from other top African nations. The CAF Confederation Cup (including its previous two-competition iterations) offer a slightly better picture, but the wins there came at a time when Nigerian domestic football was on a high and players from local clubs represented the country.

In recent years, performances at continental club competitions have been woeful. Lobi Stars, Nigeria's CAF Champions League representatives last season, travelled to South Africa and were soundly beaten by Mamelodi Sundowns.

It was not just about the result, but the disjointed and predictable play of the Nigerian team that left heads and fists shaking.

Then, CAF's African Nations Championship (CHAN), which offers a barometer of the strength of national teams sans Europe-based players, provides a clear-eyed metric. It is not one that flatters Nigeria.

The Super Eagles B-side failed to qualify for the first two tournaments, and then at the most recent final in 2018, were thrashed 4-0 by Morocco.

They also shipped four goals against rivals Ghana in the regional WAFU Cup of Nations final in 2017, and will hope to do much better this September at the event in Senegal.

Any manner of spin may be put on these results and performances, but the bottom line is that the players are simply not good enough until they move to Europe and have all their accumulated bad habits trained out of them.

On Sunday, Pillars and Tornadoes will square up in the aforementioned Aiteo Cup final. There will be further examples of this lack of formal football education, guaranteed. Anyone even suggesting the national team coach should be there, for anything other than ceremonial reasons, probably needs to rethink some life choices.

At the moment, what the Super Eagles need are two goalkeepers, one right back, one additional centreback and at least two midfielders. None of those who will be on show on Sunday can fill those gaps.

Prime Mikel on the ball was a wonderful sight to behold. Difficult, one might even say impossible, to shake off the ball and could ping passes with the precision of a German-engineered machine. No player in the domestic league comes close. Ighalo did not have the best first touch in the world, but as a cold-blooded goalscoring forward, his numbers speak for him.

The late Stephen Keshi spent over six months in camp with domestic players and ended up taking just six to the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, so it isn't for lack of effort on the coaches' parts. Of that number, only two - Godfrey Oboabona and Sunday Mba - played significant minutes. A mere six years later, none are currently anywhere near the Super Eagles team sheet.

Rohr - if he stays - or his replacement, are better served scouting for players already in Europe to fill those gaps. At least for now.

But suggesting that Rohr, or whomever the coach may be in the coming months, picks from the teams involved in the Final is a line few are brave, or stupid, enough to venture across.

Colin named Ighalo what he is, a cold blooded forward

I hereby nickname him Odion 'The punisher' Ighalo

Many people will still argue your first paragraph.
But I agree that Rohr has been relatively fair. I will score him about 85% in terms of getting the players we can easily get. In terms of getting players with dual-allegiance, he's been trying. But who has done better in that dept?


Rohr has sent out invitations to 7 foreign born players, 4 have been successful 3 have not. I think that's the most in Nigerian football history

But una still want to crucify the man sha
