    Rohr really needs to play this guy as 9 in the match against Algeria and also use Ogu in place of Onazi or Mikel in the middle. You guys need to go and watch Tony Nwakeme goals on YouTube. His style is different from Ighalo’s and he has a real presence in the opponent’s goal post. He’s brilliant, skilfull and inspires confidence in his team. Same with Kayode Olanrewaju and co. Iheanacho, I’m afraid you may miss the Russia 2018 flight. Keep famzing, you hear?

    Anthony Nwakeme has been around for sometime now and he’s a household name in Israeli football league, last season he was the best player in the Israeli league, the same award his compatriot, John Ogu won a season or two before. As a matter of fact, Anthony Nwakeme has paid his dues at club level and should get his reward with not just a national team invitation only but also with a starter’s shirt in the dead rubber game against Algeria in group’s last match.

    Antho is big, strong and bullish in his style, he’s a typical kind striker we need in the attack for Africa’s opposition. One still wonder why a forward of his type with a robust style of play is yet to take his bow. His attributes and that of his teammate John Ogu which include strong physicality and ballistic powerful packed shots on both feet would come in handy for the Super Eagles.

    The Super Eagles is blessed with such other top players as Kayode Olanrewaju, Onyekuru Henry, Umar Sadiq, Paul Onuachu who are still on the fringe of the national team behind the youngsters like Simon moses, Victor Moses, Iwobi, Iheanacho. The competition for supremacy is hot and the likes of Iheanacho, Simon Moses have up their game to be in reckon.
