What exactly are you talking about? If everyone is healthy, he is no.3 on the totem pole, which is what he was at the AFCON.

Bros, for all Boniface has done in Germany, he has done diddly in a Nigerian shirt. At this point, he cannot even shine Osimhen's shoes. He is still contesting with likes of Iheanacho and Sadiq. What matters is what he has done in a NIGERIAN shirt.

I really don't understand why it hasn't clicked for Terem granted he has had limited opportunities for the team. He seems the most versatile of our attackers. He is mobile, quick, has a cool head on his shoulders, can bring other attacking players into the game, he is not one dimensional in his style.
It's head scratching why it hasn't worked for him.

Agbako,

The problem with most on CE is that they think because someone does well at his club it automatically translates to SE. The lesson of Akpoguma has yet to sink in. People should learn that performance at your club simply earns you a call up at SE level but the player must perform in training and friendlies to earn a starting position. BONIFACE has done nothing with the SE so far to earn the status he is given by CE. He has to prove his mettle in the GWG first.

Osimhen. Boniface is #1 in a logical world.
Bros, for all Boniface has done in Germany, he has done diddly in a Nigerian shirt. At this point, he cannot even shine Osimhen's shoes. He is still contesting with likes of Iheanacho and Sadiq. What matters is what he has done in a NIGERIAN shirt.
He had an assist on Chukwueze's goal in his debut vs Sao Tome. He also scored/caused the first goal vs Saudi Arabia in the friendly. Osimhen's recent nations cup performance shows that mere "goals scored" does not always paint an accurate picture of a players contribution Boniface has also only featured in 5 games. So its a bit harsh to summarize his appearances to "diddly"

He says that we are currently "brainwashed" into believing that the Premier League is the best competition in the world, and that we are now a long way off dominating the Champions League again.

I think Spain’s by far the best league.

Metalalloy,

We can look at stats and compare that to others and you will note that he has done nothing spectacular that comes close to fan expectations, given his play at his club. Nigerians remain expectant. The hope is that Boniface shall produce far more than you have mentioned above. If what you mention above is zenith of what fans can expect and will get from Boniface, then I am afraid that he will not earn that valued position as the next best striker beside Osimhen.

Right now, the only thing that gives him an edge over the likes of Moffi and Iheanacho is that he is a big-bodied fellow with physicality as a leg up. But is that not what Onuachu, Sadiq, and Awoniyi also bring to the table?

Why do you guys like to disrespect Iheanacho like that? Pound for pound, he’s our best player🤔❗️

Please, what did he show?

Oga, when someone is on the fringes you take your opportunity with both hands. You have to do a Julius Aghahowa... come in and when the chance presents itself, SCORE!

He was given an opportunity in a tightly contested position. No of the replacements made any case to replace anyone.
THERE WAS A COUNTRY...

...can't cry more than the bereaved!

Are you talking about the 100 cap, AFCON winner, former Captain, Coach King Yobo? Good luck making that comparison.

Nope. Right now, Lookman has shown more value to the squad than Boniface. That much should be apparent. If you think otherwise, then let us know why.

As far as I am concerned, Boniface is just a media hype. He has to start doing it in the NIGERIAN COLORS. That is simple. I do not care what he does in the Bundesliga.
