Incredibly similar to Ejaria, not just in style, but appearance too.

Just found a similar video on Ejaria, though its not so new.
Could almost be one and the same person.



I just want them both to settle into one of the elite leagues, then we'll know for sure.

He (Ejaria) over elaborates in almost all those video clips. These guys are sure to put an end to VM's SE aspirations.

Okocha actually slowed our transition game due to his over dribbling. Aribo is no okocha but at least he releases the ball and doesn’t need to dribble 4 players when he gets the ball. However, the No 10 position is now redundant in modern football as creativity comes from the fullbacks, wings and even the DM. Last thing we need is another ball hog like Eze.

If these guys play well for Nigeria it could spell end of international football for players such as Etebo, Onazi, Shehu and other Mikel. We still need quality in the centre back positions and the goalkeeping area.

Not sure about Etebo completely losing out, but I agree with your predictions on Onazi (virtually out anyway) and Shehu.
I think Etebo brings something different to the team, with a phenomenal work rate.

:agree:

Okocha would have been the greatest ball player EVER, only if he hadn't grownup in a backwater football nation.

I don’t dispute Etebo’s work rate however in Nigeria’s midfield he has the tendency to give the ball away in dangerous areas and holds onto the ball for too long allowing the opposition to get back into position. This may be because he is being asked to player deeper and naturally he prefers to play further forward. With the players we have further forward he would not make the team in his natural position and with the quality additions in midfield I think if he doesn’t improve his game he could find himself an ex international

Agreed, Etebo needs to stop hugging the ball otherwise he could find himself out of the team. He lost the ball leading to Ukraine's first goal against the SE in the friendly match and also lost the ball in a dangerous area leading to Sevilla scoring against his club, Getafe. Both incidents were a result of holding too long to the ball. He needs to cut that out of his game.

Actually, I think Ndidi has more unforced turnovers of the ball in comparison to Etebo (as evidenced by their performances in the recent AFCON).
I think Etebo playing at Getafe has really helped his field generalship and I really do not see Aribo being a better player than him. Aribo's performance against Lesotho was quite disappointing for me - lost the ball far too many times.
Nigeria now seems to have some depth of decent quality midfielders in Iwobi, Ndidi, Etebo, Azeez, Aribo, Ejari and possibly Eze. They are all young and will be hitting their peak performance during the next WC.

Etebo for me is a bit of an enigma.
Seems he might be one of those 'silent performers' that hardly get noticed except when they make errors.
I say this because when I researched our team's and players' performances during the last AFCON, Etebo had one of the highest pass completion rates, not just for the SE (in which he had the highest) but for the whole tournament! I was shocked tbh.

I will dig up the thread, with comparisons and links.

Ndidi actually has a higher number of turnovers than Etebo, Ndidi for all his impeccably good tackling and recovery rates hasn't been particularly tidy in possession and has cost us goals on few occasions (I know Ndidi is our golden boy but make we talk true). Good thing he has massively improved that aspect of his game these season at Leicester. Etebo is definitely a key player for us, he's our new Onazi with a higher ceiling.

with Iwobi, Aribo, Ejaria, Azeez, Etebo and hopefully Eze with a monster like Ndidi sitting back and doing what makes him one of the best CDMs in the world, I daresay we are a team to seriously watch out for especially in that midfield. Qatar 2022 couldn't come at a better time.

You should provide statistics to back this up. You cant make a factual statement and abandon the stats. Actual statistics will help us know whether your factual statement abandons inaccuracies and is, in fact correct.

Yep....the problem is people have favorites and so don't notice when their favorites (Ndidi) make mistakes, like continuously giving the ball away in dangerous areas, fouling unnecessarily in the dangerous areas, give wayward pass after wayward pass, basically winning the ball just to dash it right back to the opponent. But they are busy collecting evidence on the non-favorites to justify why they shouldn't be playing. You can't take anyone seriously if they saw the ANC and say Ndidi is a keeper but Etebo should be out. Every Cameroonian I know after we played them was like who is that number 8 on your team, the guy dey control midfield...And I believe it was the mechanic Esiti that lost the ball for the 2nd goal vs Ukraine and not Etebo...
