Siasia: Moses Simon Will Be A Big Miss In Russia

Siasia: Moses Simon Will Be A Big Miss In Russia

By Johnny Edward:

Former Super Eagles coach Samson Siasia says Moses Simon will be a big miss for the Super Eagles if he misses out on the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia due to injury, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Simon copped a thigh injury in training with the Super Eagles in Uyo and has been effectively ruled out of the World Cup.

“Let’s wait for the final list first before arguing this,” the former Super Eagles captain told CSN.

“But if he is left out, he will be a big miss for the team. He brings a different attacking quality to the team.”

Simon scored one goal and provided two assists for Nigeria as they qualified for their sixth FIFA World Cup from a group that had Cameroon, Algeria and Zambia.

Nigeria will face DR Congo later on Monday before the squad departs for England Tuesday night.

The Super Eagles will take on England at Wembley on 2 June before facing Czech Republic in their final pre-World Cup game in Austria on 6 June.

    Lokosa is ny best player so far. He holds the ball well and is very intelligent with the ball… simy is lacking the service of Mikel as every super eagles striker always struggle when mikel is not on pitch.

    I think simmy and lokosa are promising. Left to me onazi is clueless, no clinical tackles made,his passes were so odd,echiejele is weak,can’t mark neither can he contribute to any offensive play,thus have no part in this team.
    Iheanacho is yet to find his rhythm and so does etebo and both should noy be one the starting line up,they both made no significant impression in the game. Joel still have some lapses in terms of making ng good and clear markings.
    I give credit to the goal keeper,ebuehi,lokosa and simmy.

    Hopefully he will be back; I chose to remain positive.

    Lokosa and simy should go to the WC. We don’t really have a midfield,kelechi nwakali is better than every midfielder in that team. And lastly, genart with should be sacked for not letting us see what d likes of eze, agbo and Co can do
