Below is how our players fared this season in Europe and their quality level.

61 Total number of players covered.

9 players in the Top Quality/ World Class bracket.
17 players in the Quality Bracket.
17 players in good form.
11 players in terrible form or very backwater leagues.
5 players injured or retired from national team.

This is a color scheme of Top Nigerian Players, League quality and club performance.
*Top Quality or World Class! Very Good standing (Top 5 Leagues and Pedigree teasms in CL - Porto, Gala, etc): Must also Play regularly for their clubs
*Quality! Good standing (Next 5 leagues - Belgium, Dutch, Portugal, Turkey, Russia): Must play regularly. Also includes super Subs in Green category.
*Good form/ Top Form. Average to good standing.(Switzerland, Ukraine, Austria, Scotish, MLS etc (BUrsaspor, Eupen, VVV venlo etc): Must Play regularly. Also includes supersubs from Blue Category and chronic bench warmers in Green Category
*. Disappointing/ Very Disappointing. LOW Leagues and unrated.(CHina, Saudi, Egypt, Somalia): Hopelessly on bench.
Injured: Leg temporary decommissioned

END OF 2018/19 SEASON

CURRENT NIGERIAN SQUAD

Goalkeepers:
1.Ikechukwu Ezenwa (Enyimba) -
2.Daniel Akpeyi (Chippa United/RSA - Kaizer/RSA) - started 6 games and made 5 on the bench after joing Kaizer second half of the season. Okay perofrmnace in a very poor league.
3.Francis Uzoho (Elche/ESP Div2/ Anorthosis/Cyprus) - started and played 8 matches for Elche first half of the season and played 3 matches for Anorthosis. Uzoho has had a very poor season.


Defenders:
4.William Troost-Ekong (Udinese/Serie A) - Top Quality. Played over 95% of the games for Udinese and can be ranked as top 10 defenders in the Serie A based on stats and MOTM awards. 1 of the 2 only bright spot in an otherwise dissapointing Udinese. He has now been nominated for Udinese player of the season alongside 2 other attackers. He is one huge season away from making the top 5 of the top 5. Arsenal could do with his services.
5.Leon Balogun (Brighton Hove Albion/ENG) - Had a bad bench experience.
6.Kenneth Omeruo (CD Leganes /La Liga) - Top Quality. Kenneth played week in and week out winning MOTM awards too. Unarguably top 5 defenders this season in Laliga. He is ripe for the Top 5 of the Top 5 and could just be called back to Chelsea.
7.Bryan Idowu (Lokomotiv Moscow/RUS) - Started 5 out of 13 played in the league out of a possible 29. 3 Champions League games and 1 sub in role in the domestic cup. He's had an Okay season.
8. Ola Aina (Torino, Serie A) - Top Quality. Once fit, he played every match. AIna's (also known as hulk in Torino) strengght is his attacking ability, skill and strenght with his coach saying that he would be a great player. One more season away from Top 5 of the Top 5 or could he be recalled to Chelsea? Sarri loves his Italian tutored players.
9.Jamilu Colins (Paderborn/ Bundes 2/ GER) - Top Quality. Paderborn was hot this season. Gained promotion in their first season in Bundesliga 2. Collins played every match when fit and available and was superlative. Congrats to him. He's now in the top 5.
10.Semi Ajayi (Rotherham/ CHamp/ ENG) - Quality. Started as a CD but was hot when moved to DM. Played over 98% of ROtherhams matches but still ended up getting relegated. He would likely make it to the Premiership this season with one of the newly promoted teams or bottom league team.
11.Chidozie Awaziem (FC Porto/POR) to (Rivespor/ Tur - Loan) - Quality. Had a nightmarish first half of the season but joined bottom 3 Rizespor by half season and took them up to the 10th position in the TUrkish league. He woudl make it to the Top 5 or top teams in the next top 5 (Lokomotiv, Gala, Anderlecht, etc).
12. Shehu Abdullahi (Bursaspor/TUR)- Was injured most of the season but once he got fit, was a starter. He's club couldnt avoid relegation though.

Midfielders:
12.John Ogu (Hapoel Be’er Sheva/ISR) -
14.Oghenekaro Etebo (Stoke City - Championship) - Quality. 2 goals. 1 of the best 2 players in Stoke and alot of the fans think he is the best stoke player. Would be top 5 players in the Championship this season. Even Steve Bruce had a hard-on for Etebo when his team played Stoke. Last season, he got into the LaLiga 2nd half of the season and showed them that he could play ball. I expect to see Etebo in the Top 5 next season and top team in the next top 5 (Gala is interested).
15.Wilfred Ndidi (Leicester City/ENG) - WORLD CLASS. 2 goals. Best DM in the EPL, PERIOD!!He is ripe for Man Utd, Liverpool, Real and even Barca.
17.Alex Iwobi (Arsenal/ENG) - Top Quality.6 goals. When Iwobi ticked, Arsenal balled. Only Lacazzette had higher assists than him. he leads in Big Chances created and was involved in loads of pre-assists. He has the most take ons in Arsenal. He's problem was inconsistency stemming from confidence. We can safely say Iwobi is Top 5 arsenal player this season or even Top 3.

Forwards:
19.Odion Ighalo (Changchun Yatai/CHN) - Top form in CHina. 21 goals last season. 9 games so far this season.
20.Ahmed Musa (Al Nasser/ Saudi Arabia) - Top form.7 goals. Won the Saudi League this season and was one of the Top 3 in the league. Ahmed comes with alot of experience and deadliness. Hopefully, he goes back to Europe in another 1yr.
23.Henry Onyekuru (Galastasaray, Turkey and Champions League) - Top Quality 2 goals this game. Made Team of the Week in TUrkey 2 goals so far.
24.Samuel Kalu (Bordeaux, Lique 1 France) - Top Quality. 3 Goals. Bordeaux only played when Kalu was on the field. Creator in chief, Tormentor in Chief, cutter in chief. He was greatly slowed down by Injury and personal drama. He also did well in the Europa. Next season, Kalu would turn the Lique 1 upside down.
25.Simon Moses (Levante, Laliga) - Quality1 goal so far.[/b] Got injured, got back, took him time to get into the first team but did that this year. Wasn't too assuring in most games but put in a good shift. Needs to cmeout blazing next season.
36. Paul Onuachi (FC Midtjylland, DEN) - Good Form.19 goals (2 in the Europa). and 1 assist, Paul was one of the fiercest players in Denmark although he ended up as 5th highest goalscorer. He's expected to leave to a bugger club this season.
21. Victor OSimhem (Chaleroi, Belgium) - Quality.19 goals(1 in the domestic cup). He's been a huge success. Signed fully to Chaleroi, he's expected to sign with AC Milan and get loaned to Lille. Massive!



ON THE RADAR

1.David Nwokolor (SKF Sered/ Slovakia) - STarted 11 out of 35matches. Was not subbed in to any match. Not anything special.
2. Afelokhai
3. Dele Alampasu

Defence
3. Seth Sincere (Yemi Malatyaspor, TUR) - Seth was in and out of the first team especially 2nd half of the league.
4. Chima Akas (Kalmar, SWE) - Chima has been rock solid for Kalmar and is unarguably 1 of the 2 best players in the team. One more solid season could see him move up to a better league.

Midfield
5. Mikel Agu (Victoria Setubal, Portugal) - Quality. Has won MOTM awards. Fake Mikel had a very solid season with Setubal and they ticked when he played. THough slowed down by injury. I expect him in the Top 5 next season or top team in the next top 5 (gala, PSV, etc)
7.Alhassan Muazam (Nacional, Portugal) - Disappointing.Started first few games and fizzled out to the bench before december.
8.Ifeanyi Mathew (Lillestrom, Norway) - Very DisappointingMoved to Turkey D2 in January and they ended the season 4th.
9.Afeez Aremu (IK STart, NOR) Very Disappointing From playing in D1(Prem) last season, currently in D2 with IK Start.
11.Ajagun (Korkijk, Belgium) to (Nicosia, Cyprus - Loan) - Very Disappointing. AFter a long spell out of the first team, he moved to cyprus in jan.
12.Uche Agbo (Standard Liege, Belgium) - Good form. Had a torrid first half of the season with Liege then moved to Rayo in laliga but ill health slowed him down. towards the end of the season, he played 6 games starting 5 but Rayo got relegated.
13.Anderson Esiti (Gent, Belgium) - Quality. MIssed the first month of games bcos he was sulking due to his last minute failed move to Levante. after that Saga, he bounced back badder and played every single game for Gent when fit. He's probably the top 3 in Gent and one of the strongest players in the world. I expect a top 5 move for him this season.
14.Joel Obi (Chievo Verona/ITA to Alayanspor/ TUR) - Good form. b]1 goals in the league[/b]. STarted well in Chievo, moved to Turkey by mid season and got slowed down by injuries and adapting to a new league. eventually played 4 games towards the end of the season, starting 2.

Attack
15. Simeon Nwankwo (FC Crotone/Serie B/ ITA) - Good Form. starts and scores 14 goals so far. In the past 2 seasons, Simy has proven to be a second half of the season player. And in the Serie B, he ended up as 6th highest goalscorer in the league with majority of his goals, 2nd half of the season. He has signed a contract extrension but he is expected to live to a higher league next season.
16. Anthony Ujah (Mainz, Bundesliga - Germany) -4 goals in the league.Quality. He was a supersub for mainz all season playing 22games and starting 6. I expect him to win a starting shirt next season.
17. Orji Okonkwo (Bologna, Italy) to Montreal Impact, MLS) - 2 goals so far.Good formPlayed 8 matches and started 2 in the first half of the season before moving to the MLS. Been doing well at Montreal scoring 2 goals so far.
18. Anthony Nwaekaeme (Trabzonspor, Turkey) - 10 goals in the League/ 1 in Domestic cup.Quality. first season and Took Turkey with a bang. with 11 goals, 10 assits, 11 Big chances created, Nwakaeme has shown his quality operating mainly from the left wing. He's upping his value for a big money move to china or middle east in another 1.5yrs.
19. Kayode Larry (Shanktar Donesk, Ukraine) - Disappointing Started only 3 out of 18 games. came in as a sub 7 times and the rest, his spent on the bench.
20. Emem Eduok (Kasimpasa, TUR) to BB Erzurumspor, TURK) - Quality. 10 GOals. 5 Goal for Kasimpasa, 4 for BB, 1 Domestic cup. Joined BB to help them beat them drop but didnt succeed. With 10goals and 2 assists and 5 big chances created, Eduok had a solid season.
21. Taiwo Awoniyi (Gent, Belgium) - Quality.11 GOals. 2 in Domestic cup for Gent Had a torrid time in Gent but moved to truden 2nd half of the season and showed his quality. There are speculations of bigger moves for him to Germany and Spain and Club Brugge.
22. Imoh Ezekiel (Korkijk, Belgium) - Good form.4 GOalsHE had an OKAY season. started 7 and made bench 16 times in the regular season. Played half of the matche sin the play offs and scored 3 goals. I guess he is on hhis way back to Top form after his downgrading moves to the middle east.
23. Chidera Ejuke (Valarenga,NOR) - Top form.4 GOals.He is one of the Top 5 players in Europe with the highest dribble attempts and success rate. He is a higly skillful player and the reason Valrenga are currently 4th on the table. At this rate, he'll make a leap to the Top 8 Leagues in Europe. Watch out for this one.
24. Adeleke Akinyemi(IK Start, NOR) - Very dissapointing.4 GOals last season. Dropped to the 2nd Div in Norway. and has played only 1 game for the team so far.
25. Stephen Odey (FC Zurich, SWI) - Good form.10 goals in the league, 2 in domestic cup, 2 in Europa. Solid Season.
26. SYlvester Igboun (FC Ufa, RUSSIA) - Quality. STarted as usual 4 Goals So far (1 in Eur)
27. Sadiq Umar (Rangers, Scotland) - Good form.4 GOals
28. Blessing Eleke (FC Luzern, SWI) - Good form.13 GOals in League, 2 in domestic cup. 6 goals so far
29.Kelechi Iheanacho(Leicester City/ENG) - Disappointing Very disspointing season for Kelechi. The coach gave him chances but he never grabbed it with both hands.
30. Hilary Gong (Vitesse, Dutch League) - Bench
31. Samuel Chukwueze (Villareal, LALIGA) - Top Quality.5 GOals in league, 2 in domestic, 1 in Europa HE was simply unstoppable this season. One more season and he would be in the Top 5 in the Top 5.
32. Samuel Adegbenro (Rosenburg, NOR) - Good form.4 GOals
33. Isaac Success (Watford, EPL) - Quality.1 GOal in League, 1 in Domestic cup. Isaac was a supersub for watford this season. Played 30games, started 9. HE played well in most games. I would advise he moves to Spain, France or Germany on loan in the quest for regular football.
34. Davidokereke (Spezia, Serie B) - Quality. 10 GOals. Was a revelation in the Serie B last season. Currently has numerous suitors in the Top 5 leagues. Watch out fo this kid next season
35. Denis Bonaventure (Club Brugge, Belgium) - Quality.7 GOals. Starts when fit and is always solid in every game. Also did well inthe Champions League Europa.

Injured/ Retired
1. Tyronne Ebuehi (Benfica/POR) - out injured
2. Nura Abdullai (Perugia, Serie B) - Retired from football due to health issues.
3. Elderson Echiejile (Cercle Brugge/BEL) - I've retired him from National team :)
4. Victor Moses (Chelsea/ENG) - Retired from National Team. :bump:
5. Ogenyi Onazi (Trabzonspor/TUR) - Started 1 goal so far.


+++++++++++++++++FIrst week of rating in the 2018/19 season++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I, like many others here believe that the more players you have playing in top sides, the better their quality. Playing against African opposition, less quality is needed but the world stage is a totally different ball game.

This is a color scheme of Top Nigerian Players and their League quality. Hopefully, we woudl have 5/6 players moving up to better sides this season.


*Very Good standing (Top 5 Leagues and Pedigree teasms in CL - Porto, Gala, etc): We have 11 players in this cat
*Good standing (TOp 10 clubs in Next 5 leagues - Belgium, Dutch, Portugal, Turkey, Russia): We have NO player in this cat
*Very Average (Switzerland, Ukraine, Austria, Scotish, MLS etc and Bottom 8/10 of Next 5 Leagues (BUrsaspor, Eupen, VVV venlo etc): We have 6 players in this cat
*LOW Leagues (CHina, Saudi, Egypt, Somalia): We have 5 players in this cat


From upcoming players we have
6 in green
6 in Blue
10 in Red

You guys seem to think players simply get up one day and move
You should first get a club wanting to sign you

Yes and alot of these guys have showcased themselves in the worldcup. Some of them did well in their clubs last season and some of them have past pedigree that can get them one last chance in a good team.

Already, we hear Ekong is pulling interest from Lille.
Omeruo, Idowu and Uzoho showcased themselves well in the WC.
Simy gave a blinder 2nd half of last season in Serie A. That can get him another club in the same league, nearly all the clubs in france, Germany, mid to low table clubs in La liga., CSKAs, Sporting Lisbons and Ajaxs of this world.

Yes, your type is needed at the NFF, this is what Nigeria paid Lagerback for the free information you gave

I support this idea.

Is it possible make an updatable database of players that would be viewable by all forumers, and to which they can contribute? I suggest that it include information such as minutes played in addition to position specific data (goals scored/90, shots blocked, tackles etc).

As much as the leagues/teams in which players are associated is important, I feel that consistent play at a decent level is more relevant to development.

Finally, some will wonder what the point is: I humbly propose that when we have debates and/or discussions on this forum about players' abilities, roles, and potential contribution to SE we will be more informed with the backing of data.

Of course, if there is existing resource similar to that which has been proposed here by nfachairman then we should be open to supporting that.

I like this thread! This is what planning is all about, you dont start planning on world cup year, it starts today, Nigerian players have to work harder so they can attract the big clubs, i feel in 4 hears, we should have at least 5-6 world class players in that team

Having players in top clubsides does not guarantee the SE of our dreams esp if such players play in EPL
EPL teams are notorious for putting pressure on nat team duties. How many SE on display this 2018 WC have the quality of Bright Omokaro/ Frday Ekpo/ Thompson oliha/John Ene Okon/ Wole Odegbami? Sunday Eboighe......... The way fwd for SE is to strengthen local league once again. Nigeria strength has always been BEST wingers on the continent. Wingers are a must for SE
Let us not put all eggs in foreign based basket........I dare say no one in today SE backline is GOOD enough for SE of my dream ...fact

I don't think this thread should be limited to tracking our players in top European leagues alone.

Africa has some top sides with history. We have a few players in South America. Those should also be considered as well IMHO.

Some CE member don't want to give homebase players a chance,
claiming they have low IQ Blah Blah

They can't make Foreign trials

GONG!!!

This is a high profile transfer in a high standard dutch league. They shelled out $4m meaning they expect him to be one of the live wires of their team. He's just one great season away from the likes of PSG, Barca, Man U, dortmund, celtics etc. Now he needs to deliver then maybe an SE callup could happen.

Dutch top division side Vitesse Arnhem recently announced the signing of AS Trencin Nigerian winger Hillary Gong on a four year deal for a fee in the region of almost €4m.

Owngoalnigeria.com has tracked the winger right from his formative days at Jos where he turned out for the famous GBS Football Academy, which is owned by popular youth coach Ahmed Ibrahim, the one most people refer to as ‘ Coach Bros’.

Hong started his football with the Academy and didn’t play for any team in the various leagues in Nigeria before joining Trencin 18 months ago, where he grew in leaps and bounds.

In the only full season he played at the club, the 19 year old showed why he is widely regarded as the closest thing to have come out of Nigeria in terms of wingers since the exit of Finidi George formerly of Ajax ‎.

Here are five things fans of Vitesse should expect from the forward, who is widely tipped to be a big hit in the Dutch Eredivisie at same club where Nigerian forward Abiola Dauda failed to sparkle.

1. The indigene of Jos in Plateau state Nigeria is quick, strong & skillful.

2. A cultured winger who can defend when the need arises without neglecting his main duty in attack. Simply put, he is very good at both ends of the pitch.

3. Hong is rated as one of the most technical player in the Slovakian league last season due to his ability to know when to run at defenders, shoot, pass or even go for goals with the balls at his feet. His positioning without the ball is also top notch.

4. He finised last season with 14 assists in all competitions. Which increased his total contribution in terms of goals to 26 as he also found the back of the net 12 times. Meaning he can create and also score goals.

5. ‎Fans of Vitesse should be rest assured that their new signing won’t miss games due to injuries or suspension. Since moving to Trencin his health and disciplinary record is about the best in the division.

I, like many others here believe that the more players you have playing in top sides, the better their quality. Playing against African opposition, less quality is needed but the world stage is a totally different ball game.

This is a color scheme of Top Nigerian Players and their League quality. Hopefully, we woudl have 5/6 players moving up to better sides this season.

WRONG DIRECTION

The goal should not be to push players to the top European clubs. The goal should be to have respectable domestic or regional leagues around the world. I don't know how anybody, moreso FIFA, could tolerate the the present state of soccer where the center of gravity appears to be western Europe. Why's it that only people in these countries get to see their players and others live while the rest of the world can only see them on TV? And where is the healthy diversity of playing styles if all play like these Europeans?

It irks me when the rest of the world act as though this is the inevitable condition, and not only accept it but push it. No, I'm not unrealistic and I know that players around the world are attracted to these few countries for economic reasons. I'd do the same myself. This points to the fact that the state of world football is in disrepair and the effort should be to fix it. Not perpetuate it.

It is an indication of how good their agent was at that time.
