    Give Paul Onuachu a chance to compete with others in the National camp. He is always strong and ready to go. He look a Russian material to many Nigerians.

    We only have 5 friendly matches to play.
    There are only so much trials we can do. We need experienced and accomplished strikers.
    Yes we need just one more potent striker and an attacking midfielder to sub Mikel Obi.
    And I make bold to suggest ogbeche Bartlomew and Ezekiel Imo if he discovers his Olympic form.
    Another player to be considered for the DM is Joel Obi.
    Heidi, Joel Obi and Mike Obi will be so super for a 4-3-3 style of play.

    Wether Onuachu and others make it to Russia or not I am so happy for Nigerian football’s future due to prethora of talents available. By the turn of 2022 world cup, we will rank among the contenders for the coveted trophy.

    I really believe coach Rohr needs to give Paul Onuachu a lookin. At least let’s see what he can do in the Eagles colours. The excuse that Paul plays in the less glamorous Danish league is no longer tenable. One of our US-94 greats, Uche Okechukwu spent most of his professional career in Denmark.
    Even the great Rashidi Yekini played for a lowly Portuguese club, Victoria Setubal at a time that Amaechi Otiji (Feyenoord), Efan Ekoku (Everton), Victor Ikpeba (Monaco) and Richard Owubokiri (Boavista) could not measure up to him in Super Eagles!

      Agreed. Rohr should consider a trial for Onuachi, at least in one of the friendly games. If he proves his mettle, he should be in for Russia. What counts is the skill, and not the club rank, really.

    We need him in Russia
