  • I hope Kelechi Nwakali gets a chance to prove himself under Genot Rohr.
    With the imminent departure of Mikel from the Eagles set up,the former u17 world cup winning capt should fancy his chances under Rohr.
    Although he might not have the requisite experience at this level compared with the w/cup experience of Iwobi and Etebo he’s been in great form.
