That Etebo is good, has that suddenly changed because we are seeing the emergence of another good midfielder?

Aribo get stamina, no be small! There was a ball he won back towards the end of the game that Ndidi appeared to have given up on as he was tired.
I am happy

Aribo is good, quite possibly current SE best player. But Etebo is needed if not for anything for his free kick ability. His free kick against South Africa, reminds of Okocha’s 2004 free kick against Cameroon.

He's a good scorer and times his runs well, that's for sure.

I am worried about his play in midfield though, ball distribution, tackling, positioning, control of the game...don't think it's at that elite level yet.

I am more interested to see how Aribo does with Ndidi beside him and against strong opposition. This could be the game that cements his place in the side and relegates Etebo to the bench or vice versa.
After Aribo’s performance vs Brazil this your post is getting closer to reality. Ukraine is one this but Brazil is just about as good as it gets or there about. In both things he’s gone above and beyond from etebo’s contributions. That said it’s still early days but he’s on the right path towards being a regular starter for the SE.

:thumbs: Rohr is gonna have a serious selection headache which is a real positive for the team as we were almost bare after ANC losing Mikel and Ogu.

Aribo developing under the wings of Steven Gerrard at Glasgow Rangers is a major blessing. Aribo seems to have that positioning and impact thing that was the hallmark of Stevie G.

Rangers are under pressure to snatch the scottish championship from long reigning Celtic this year, which means Aribo will have to keep delivering some serious performances.

Long may his rapid development continue.

Not the most important, but I am not comfortable with him wearing the number 10 shirt. In our "culture," that shirt is heavy. Its a gift. its something that is earned. He shouldnt just walk in and pick it up.

In fact if we get Ejaria and Eze those will also be a better acquisition than Abraham IMO.

Let Abraham get his customary 2 or 3 minutes at the end of each game.
wow if we can get those 2 now - super eagles is done and finally cooked for me.

Blame Iwobi for not having the balls to pick up the 10 jersey with all man in naija waiting and expecting him to pick it up with confido. Aribo has jumped into the shirt and scored 2 goals from 2 games. Now fear will not gree anyone to ask him for the shirt given his current form while wearing 10 :rotf:

Finally we are getting a good player wearing a number that had been inappropriately kidnapped as soon as JJ put it down and you guys are complaining? I guess you guys didn't mind when the previous owner couldn't even get PT at our last tournament, basically wasting the number....tufiakwa! :curse:

Thats not what your statement meant...but who cares..

Etebo is good but wont start before Aribo, shirt is Aribos and only him can lose it now.....Etebo needs to leave stoke to be taken seriously...

Other than Okocha and maybe Nwosu (who both got the number at 20) which ICONIC player wore it for Nigeria?

SE needs a coach that believes in them like Keshi, Siasia but can also leave the poor management, ego and bribery temptations on the side like Rohr
Offense or defensive formation did not prevent him from shielding his ball better, making the right passes, losing the ball and having the awareness of a 5 year old in some cases. He was the absolute worst player on that pitch today and no formation led to his diabolical play.
Now think...what wrong with Ozil at Arsenal? He doesn’t care? He is not talented? Or it just a shiiiit team? Or maybe Ozil don’t fit in Emery’s plan?

Now replace Ozil with Iwobi or anyone that ever played AM for the SE in that sentence and Arsenal for SE.

Mba looks more talented now than Iwobi, is it because he is or is it becos Keshi played good his strengths?

Iwobi is the centre of the team and the SE should be built around him or find someone else but I can guarantee you that whoever that is will find same fate.

Do u think that if Iwobi had 3-4 options to pass the ball to he wouldn’t? What is he shielding the ball from monsters? When is football about shielding the ball? How many times did Neymar with all his talent shield the ball?....

Am busy to continue this lesson....

I said this was Aribo’s match and he pulled it off despite some ppl here telling me that he was average and my judgement is based on one game....lol

I do this for a living not an arm chair coach throwing worthless insults.
we need a like button in this forum. This analysis is spot on. Where is the movement? Where are the outlets? Iwobi is a creative AM. He is the creative attacking link of our team. His job is not to hold up play. His job is to spring our attack. To open up the opponent. When he's receiving the ball and there is no movement or attacking intent around him, it does not play to his strength. He needs attacking options. The game was too conservative and defensive and he was left to do too much. We will never win anything with that kind of football. Play to his strengths.
