He played well and looked like a decent player, hopefully his ball control when running with the ball gets closer as he develops, would be a much more difficult player to deal with.

Henry played well all through the 90mins. He is fast, has a fast response, he is decent on the wings. I wish he would get a work permit and get called back by Everton in January.

I am still keen to know what is his best position. I suspect he will be a better striker if played centrally.

To best accommodate Onyekuru, Rohr may have to switch formation to 4-4-2.

With Bazee, Iwobi, Victor Moses, Musa, S.Moses we are overloaded on the wings. What we haven’t sorted out is a pure out and out finisher. Osimhen may not be ready. Tammy hasn’t committed, Kayode hasn’t lit up the place. Isaac Success is off form, so Onyekuru is our best option here.

He reminds me a lot of Andy Cole. He has the pace but needs to be a bit more clinical and a bit more intelligent with his play (his instinct is to always run with the ball and dribble his marker). Rohr just needs to work out who will be his Dwight York/teddy Sheringham partner. Nacho has the potential but is going off the boil a bit. Since Ighalo isn’t going to be called for the Algeria game. It will be interesting to see who he gets paired with. Maybe Bonaventure will get a call up...

We don't have the personnel to play 442. Playing 442 would leave out midfield vulnerable. Onyekuru seems like a decent talent but his not benching Moses or iwobi on the wings nor ighalo or iheanacho up front. He needs to compete with Simon, musa and bazee for a place in our 23. I really want to see that haze guy

Bazee has not played at all this season
Iheanacho is out of form

We need to see a lot of our players up the game in the second half of the season. At the moment, things are not looking good.

Onyekuru is someone to play off the bench. He is a better option than Ahmed Musa. He can dribble and is relatively quick. He's not yet a starting player.

Imho Rohr is looking for:

- DM
- Strong physical No 9 that can play in the box
- WB

We can manage our striking issue but DM and at least one good WB is critical if we are to go anywhere at the World Cup.

Abeg, tell dem, He was playing against one of the top sides in the world and he gave a very good account of himself. He was by far Anderlecht's best player and his talents is far above that of a poor team like Anderlecht.

I like Onyekuru. he reminds me of Neymar--- a player that can destabilize defenses with his movement and skills, but he has one thing extra -- HE SCORES! Even hazard doesnt have that. As amazing as Hazard is, one criticism I always had about him and why I said he will NEVER reach the level of Neymar, talk less of Ronaldo and Messi is that he doesnt score enough.


This is from a post a mere couple of scrolls up from both of you.

No he doesnt! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: That is not how you select a team! In fact! that is specifically the way you should NOT select a team. thats how you end up with a player like Flamini! A player who will play like a beast when it serves him (i need to go to world cup) and then once selected, he will return to his normal uselessness.

You select a player based on the body of his work, during that whole season and his attitude in handling difficult circumstances/pressure/

One good wingback? What is Victor Moses?
A DM? A DM is the least of our worriers with Ndidi and Onazi. At best we need a back up DM, but those two are class.

We need:
GK options
LW
LB
and a bit more depth never hurt anyone.

We do not need a DM and a wingback.

Anderlecht
Onyekuru, the blaster 6
Of course, the young Nigerian nugget still has waste in its game. But Henry Onyekuru had the merit of daring, trying, pushing, dribbling, in short to try to accelerate the game of his team. At the beginning of the game, when his team moved the Parisian rearguard, he was all good, almost. Without a nice exit of Areola (12th), he could even equalize for his own after leaving Dani Alves on the spot. He could also have reduced the mark at the end of the match but his powerful shot was crashing on the bar. At just 20 years old (he had them in June), the player loaned by Everton has a bright future ahead of him.

We already have along list of non scoring strikers that is why it is important that he does score other wise we may as well stick with the more experienced crap strikers Ighalo, Brown ,Kayode Ujeh and Success. At international level football there is no body of work over any period of time. 9ja is lucky if they ever use the fifa international break for a friendly. you are as good as your last game and this guy has only the Togo friendly and he didn’t score and didn’t play well. He has not scored in the champions league yet. he has only scored in a very poor Belgium league therefore his quality is still unknown and he is fighting for a place in 9ja’s World Cup squad. For get about him replacing Simon Moses or Iwobi those guys are on the plane. He is in competition with Ighalo for the strikers position. For first time in our qualification campaign our top scorer is a midfielder rather than our strikers which speaks volumes about the striking position.

It's not an "excuse" (he's their top scorer) because Anderlecht has really been POOR...
But I agree that every player still has to EARN an SE place based on his SE performance.

His pace is electric. The way he flew past Dani Alves in the first half (after giving Alves a 2 yard head start) and ended up 5 yards ahead of Alves within 5 seconds was breathtaking. He made Alves look 54 rather than 34.

He looks like a very promising player. Pace to burn, quick feet, and needs tactical fine tuning. I think being on loan at Anderlecht is excellent for his development. He can work on his game while playing against elite players in the Champions League, and away from the EPL shin saboteurs.

Hmm ok agree
So how did Musa who starts for Leicester U 18 team earn his place in the super eagles team?

Anderlecht are 1-0 down due toa goalkeeping error and could have conceded a 2nd due to a short back pass. Other than that Anderlecht have been the better team


Dammy,

All the above does is get him an invitation to SE. He already has that invitation. Nothing more. The fact that he took Alves to school does not get him an SE starter's shirt. After all, did Musa not take Argentina to school at the World Cup? Just stating.

That was three years ago though. I do not think we can use the form of 2014 to make decisions in 2017/18.

However, I do agree with you that Onyekuru has to earn his shirt once invited to camp. He has to deliver in friendlies and Nations Cup qualifiers if he wants to go to Russia.
