KPOM

It's not just the Olympics, but also WYC and U17.

To me it's nothing more than an opportunity for player exposure. The Nigerian in me means I will root for them during matches but once it's over, I couldn't care less if they win or lose.

The Super Eagles is where it's at.

I read a match report on the first leg saying Awoniyi was missing chances left and right!
To make matters worse, David Okereke, Osimhen and Success are all unavailable.
Where will the goals come from today? I am very, very worried.

The problem is most European teams refuse to release their best players for the Olympics. With the exception of Brazil at the last Olympics most of the teams, Nigeria including had several star players missing.

They have NO choice with the Olympics as it’s a FIFA event...
As Barcelona learnt when it tried to preclude Messi from the 2008 Olympics.

It’s the qualifiers that clubs are not required to release players...
However CAF tried to get around that by scheduling this last round in a FIFA Window.

Sadly, the SE merely seem to make up the numbers these days...
Personally, psyched to watch ANY/ALL Nigerian NT - male, female, HB, youth, senior, U23!

So in 2 legs against "mighty" Sudan, Awoniyi could only score once?
If all eligible players are available, no way he makes the Olympics.

That was in the past, Clubs can now withhold players from the Olympics. FIFA no longer enforces clubs to release players for the Olympics.

Especially as the guy he's been rubbishing Awoniyi for has been even less impressive.

He may not start, but should make the squad. If we qualify the 4 strikers that may be selected could be Osimhen, Okereke, Awoniyi, and possibly Sanusi (top scorer in the NPFL).

Osimhem should already be an established top class striker by then, no need to include him. I don’t know why we feel we have to every developmental tournament. Regular members of SE should be excluded.
