Playing national team football seriously improves a player. Because they get extra coaching from the National team coaches. Also, playing with talented national team players from clubs around the world improves the player and his confidence, just as, tournaments and international games gives a huge confidence boost and a shopping window.

Congrats Semi.

I am still not yet sure where his best position is. I hope he makes the Nations Cup squad so we can find out.

So he has to make the Nations Cup Squad BEFORE 'we' can find out his best position. What will you discover in 6 Nations cup games (Nations cup is maximum 6 games) that you cannot discover in 46 championship games?

Hmmmmmm

It’s not the coaching...
Rather it’s the boost in confidence and often better competition.

National team coaches usually have no time to really “coach” players that will gather together for a few days of training every few months. They are more focused on tactics.

Rotherham United: Nigeria involvement has helped me grow says Semi Ajayi

Thursday 21 March 2019

Rotherham United's Semi Ajayi has put his sparkling run of form over the last few weeks down to his international exploits with Nigeria.

Ajayi was first called up to the Super Eagles squad before Christmas, but it is his form in 2019 that has made him one of the standout players in the Championship.
The former Arsenal trainee has been moved into a midfield role by Millers boss Paul Warne and has excelled, banging in six goals in the last five games. Ajayi believes working with the likes of Alex Iwobi and Idion Ighalo has helped raise his game.

“Spending time at training day in day out with top, top class players is going to help anyone improve, it makes me raise my game,” he said. “I have got different voices giving me different information that I can use and bring back to my game at Rotherham, it has been really positive.”

His recent call-up to the latest Nigeria squad was marked by him being listed as a midfielder, despite his original recognition earlier this season being as a defender. That is testament to the job he has done in the Millers. Ajayi will contest a role for upcoming games against Seychelles and Egypt against the likes of Wilfried Ndidi and Peter Etebo.

"I feel very comfortable in midfield," he said. "I've played quite a few games there now and I'm understanding my role more and more every week. Richie (Barker) and the gaffer have been really good with me in terms of giving me information to fulfill the role.
The last camp I went to I came on as a sub and played in midfield and then played 90 minutes at centre-half so the manager (Gernot Rohr) knows I can play in midfield."

“He has heard the gaffer here say a lot that I can play in midfield, they watch all of my games, so they will have seen I have been playing games in midfield and that is why I have been listed as a midfielder. He knows I can play multiple positions.
It's always a massive honour to be called up by my country, I have been asked to represent them again and I am looking forward to the two games ahead.”


Ajayi is not the only international in the Millers camp as Will Vaulks made an impressive debut for Wales in their late 1-0 win over Trinidad and Tobago. The midfielder gave a good account of himself and put himself in contention for next week's Euro 2020 qualifier with Slovakia, who have Millers goalkeeper Marek Rodak in their squad.

TRUE, BUT...


…I wouldn't entirely discount the contribution of NT coaches. After all, they've been watching his club matches and may have spotted things that he could add to his game. Let's not forget, it's the NT coaches who came up with the M/F idea in the first place to make him more versatile.

No, it was not...
Early season injuries at Rotherham compelled that positional experimentation BEFORE his SE call-up.
