What is good here is that he did not need an Euro manager to have him practice this skill. He has dedicated time to this art like the great ones do everywhere else and the results show. Great work. Hope he continues with it.

He has potential but he has to keep improving. More experienced goalies at the senior level will probably save those.

By the way, Nwakali had the same kind of potential at that level, which is encouraging because we know Nwakali can be brilliant with his free kicks and from long range❗️


Cheers.

Clearly, he will need to keep improving as his body matures because to get to senior level football is no beans. I am glad, however, that this kid really works on his freekick technique. Scoring like this does not occur by happenstance, as we all know.

Could it be he makes the goalies look like baskets? All those goalies can't be baskets at once.

My definition of a basket is any goalie that lets in 33 goals in 30 matches in the Israeli league. One piss poor agent may disagree, but it doesn't get any more basket than that.

Cmon Onku, those free kicks were good but a decent young goalie in most pro youth teams would save those like you save when flossing.

It's certainly interesting to see that we have not allowed ourselves to mope around for too long over our lack of qualification for the world cup. And we have taken short as well as long term view. First appointing a new manager with a different mindset and going back to the basics

By the basics, we are going back to where we have had some success in the past and moving on from there

I think that it's glaring that we've almost ended up not recognizing our team on field of play. We are only going to get better with time because we now have handlers who can draw from their experiences abroad. It's a shame really that it has not reflected in our NT.

At least, we know what works best for us and we have all seen the dangers of continuing along the path of the last 5 or 6 years or so.

Personally I want to see the team return to competitive football. I recall meeting several people at different times especially from South America in the late 90s and anytime I tell them I am from Nigeria, the topic suddenly changed to football. Then they have not forgotten about Nigeria. I don't know if this is still the same.

There is indeed a LARGER PRESSURE that is taking place which you are one of the few to acknowledge so far. :clap: :clap: :clap: As I have mentioned, in the past, Pinnick was ushered in as NFF President and he came in with the belief that local development of footballers was not working in Nigeria. He went to work immediately, not only focusing on talent developed overseas for the Super Eagles but he also did the same with all other national teams. The results have been devastating at the youth level and at the senior level it has yet to move Nigeria to a position of dominance at the Africa level. Based on these outcomes, there has been a stringent back lash and fight back. It is obvious, that the pushback has now sent Pinnick back to the drawing board to re-evalu8ate.

It might be a little too late for him, but is Pinnick finally getting it right with our youth football?

Hopefully he does not end up in Europe under the tutelage of the many coaches who would prefer he play water carrier or less cerebral roles. Otherwise, less discerning Africans would come out here and be critical that his lack of upside, thereafter, was a result of him faking his age.

I've noticed many of our people don't understand the dynamics at play here regardless of the activity.

What's really important is that the boy develops. It doesn't matter whether it's European or Nigerian coaches that work on him, the end product is what's most important and not some white v black rubbish!

When your FA Chairman/President is a fan of EPL... and of the club Arsenal, you will realize the influence it plays in his psyche. Man once abandoned our female national team to go watch his favorite club's game.

His collaborators on this site don't even begin to appreciate the overreaching import of depending almost exclusively on players whose foundation are outside of the shores of Naijaria.
