    Ujah is back and banging like the days of Werder Bremen. Two substitute appearance and 2 decisive goals for Mainz. Blessing Eleke also seems to be on fire cuz he also got on the scoresheet for Luzern before the International break. Thanks to Sporting Chaleroi for giving our Super eagles future Star-striker game time unlike when Wolfsburg were busy destroying the youngster’s career. @CSN, Is Taiwo Awoniyi playing for Anderlecht or KAA Gent? Please confirm.

    • Yes it seems completesports have got their teams mixed up. he plays for KAA Gent who play Sint-Truiden on Sunday.

      And yes, hopefully Ujah can force his way into the first team and be a regular. He has played a bit part since he returned from China this year. Two subs, two goals (23 minutes in one match and 17 minutes in the second today)means he should be knocking on the managers door asking why he cannot get more game time. Blessing also doing well as is Oday (4 goals in 7 this season). Osimhen an average of 23 minutes a match (16 games over two seasons is a very poor turnout at Wolfsburg. Funny enough both Club Brugge and Zulte-Wagerem turned him down in August after trials. I wonder why? Maybe he will get a chance at a lower league club or a smaller club?
