    CS Samuel Chukwueze, made his senior debut in Europa with Villarreal against Rangers in their two all draw, that alone really worth mentioning. That boy is a star in the making, he fashioned his play like that of Arjen Robben.

      Gbayiju! I wonder why Samuel Chukwueze wasn’t mentioned. The kid made his Europa league debut and was a joy to watch in his 10 minutes cameo display. He’s definitely one to watch. The 2015 Eaglets have some stars for the immediate future. Chukwueze, Nwakali, Okonkwo Orji, Kingsley Michael are all primed to take the SuperEagles to the next level. Another testament to the NFF U13 and U15 development program.

    Moses! Moses!! Moses!!! You resigned from international football to focus on club football and in five games you have only played for nine minutes. What an irony! if not that you have resigned now at least you will have been sure of playing AFCON qualifiers, rather than losing on both sides.
