Today's Europa Cup game v Valencia. Think we're gonna have to start calling this boy a WC player. World class! He was super again today but his team lost 3-1. Abeg, this boy is too good for U20 or U23. Too valuable to be playing African youth ball at this time. We're not gonna win the U20 WC with or without him, so why waste his time? Even if we do its a just a developmental tournament. He is too good for that.

Two things, I noticed today. First, people know him now, at times, they had one player close to him, with another on backup. So he's no longer an unknown quantity. Noticed this in the past few games as well. Secondly, he needs to work on his shooting, if he will fully embrace that Worldclass label.
Right now, I'm loving his decision making, but when he breaks free at times, his shooting lets him down.
I would say also, his getting back to help his full back needs work. As a coach like Rorh at this point will pick Simon Moses, and Kalu over him. Regardless of all these, the boy is a star.

I just like the fact that no matter what team he is facing, the guy is not intimidated. He got off at least six shots on goal in this match. Yes, his defending needs work, but that is within a team concept and is easier to teach than the offensive. He will come good.

Should have put away some of those chances.

He still needs tournament experience. It also helps with 'bonding'. He will also start to appreciate our 'jaga jaga' ways of doing things.

If he is FREE and healthy let him play!

He missed 3 chances. His team should have been ahead a long time ago. I am sorry but this boy is being overhyped. I won't start him for the SE, he has a lot of improving to do

He did well.
As noted, he needs to work on his shooting.
But his overall game has come on sooooo much since the beginning of the season. He's bringing variation into his game.
I hope he goes to U20; he'll be the best player there.
And he belongs in our ANC squad at least, a possible starter depending on how Herr Rohr lines things up.
But he's certainly the most exciting prospect we have right now.

With the result, one wonders who is the terrorist and who got terrorized?

Olodo, the goalie made 2 excellent saves, nothing he could’ve done better.

Do you think the boy is a machine? You want him to play at wyc then return to play again 1 months later at ANC. When he experience burn out and flip, you will be the first to suggest we discard him. He should only go to 1

I saw the game and while I am not going to comment on the game as a whole, I can assure you that the result doesnt tell the story at all.

Game was 1-1, Villareal had a chance to make it 2-1 and missed. Valencia "ogboju" them and scored! 1-2! Villareal, playing at home, an being inexperienced in knockout tournaments, decided to IMMEDIATELY angrily attack! Valencia, sitting deep, got the ball and hit them on a counter and scored! 1-3!

The second and third goals were within 2 minutes or less, I think. They pretty much hit them on counter, when Villareal was trying to score because they were at home and this is a derby-- they didnt want to lose a derby.

But why would the NFF let him go to the U20 World Cup?Everyone knows the NFF gets involved in team selection so why would they take a backseat when it benefits their chances in this years premier competition the AFCON?
There's no way Rohr would think Chukueze isn't ready especially now that Kalu seems to be miss due to injury (Kalu wasn't even on the bench against St Ettienne today 17/4/19)!

This young boy is dragging a La Liga team away from relegation. That's a level of maturity players of his age don't have. If he can do that in Spain, he's ready for the SE.

What’s oops about that comment? Does telling the truth that he should have put away at least one of the three chances prevent him from growing? You guys are always anti-truth, but I’m a keep dishing the harsh truth. I’m sure even his coach encouraged him to take his chances and might have even given him more finishing practice, that is how a player grows by recognizing the truth and working on it.
