After JJ okocha, Joel Obi is the most skillful Nigeria midfielder that’s still playing. If he is fit, I would gladly support the coach calling him up to access if his good enough for the World Cup. Also, barring his injury antecedents it’s kind of risky taking him to the World Cup because he can just drop injured after one game. Anyway, whatever rohr does in reference to Obi i am in support

Decent showing from Joel this afternoon. Withdrawn after 77 minutes after his team went a goal down.

Watched the game. IMHO, nothing changed -- Obi can ball and he deserves a call up.

This is only player that didnt participate in the World Cup qualifiers that I would support his call up due to the following: he is an exceptional player, has international experience, plays in Italy, would add value to the Eagles. It should be noted that he has a poor injury record and therefore would have to be managed carefully if called up.

I watched today's game and i think Obi is good but nothing has convinced me we should take him to the world cup.

He covers ground and is good in the transition from defense to attack. I don't think he tackles as well as Onazi. He seems to chase after the ball while doing very little in the sense of tackling. His decision making in the attacking phase is also not as good as Etebo's. He is good but we don't have a midfield weakness and he is injury-prone. Still a no from me.

Do you think Belgium are making the same deductions regarding Vincent Kompany or is he a shoo-in if he remains fit?

I know right, no one is saying he must start but he could give us depth and his club performances have earned him the right to at least be called up for assessment.

Thank you sir. The Obi of today is not the same one of 5 years ago. He just doesn't do enough for me and his best position is still a mystery. I will stick to Mikel, Ndidi, Onazi, Ogu and Etebo. Shehu too can play in midfield.

Lilly, remember that he plays in the toughest league compared to all those midfielders you mentioned except ndidi and has scored 5 goals this season. I would take obi over Mikel Agu but whatever the coach decides I’m supporting. No one is bigger than the country

Perhaps the most talked about issue in Nigerian football presently is the speculated and well received news of Joel Obis impending return to the National team

The 26 year old ex Inter Milan players name has been making the rounds . . . http://www.soccerassembly.com/joel-obi-phoenix-rises/

He is worthy of a call up and that’s obvious he’s a footballers footballer.
