    Great display by Nassarra. He was a constant nuisance to the Huddersfield defense throughout the game. A goal reminiscent of the great Daniel Amokachi. His hold up play is phenomenal. I think we’re finally seeing the Nassarra Success of Granada. If he can stay consistent and keep fit he will SuperEagles top striker at the AFCON next June.

  • I’m so happy he is finally fulfilling his potential. He will push Ighalo all the way.

    We now have two strikers to instill great into defences.

    Add on Stephen Odey and eventually Osimhen and we have 4 free scoring centre forwards for AFCON 2019 if they stay in shape and keep their form

  • Happy for Isaac Success. He has shaken off his initial injury setback and getting to settle down to play. This goal will imbue him with confidence and serve as a springboard to many others to come.
    His strength, intelligence on the ball and skills are great assets.
    Here comes another lad from the class of the triumphant 2013 U-17 FIFA World Cup coming through.
    The Super Eagles are getting spoilt for choice.
