The Eagles in Flight

 Quickly, I will talk about the Poles abi Polish been Punished by the Eagles and some lapses.

●Just the 90minutes against Poland and the 45minutes vs Argentina is enough for anyone to know who our number one Goalkeeper will be.

Francis 'Odinaka' Uzoho had a poor first half but was superb in the second half. One thing was evidence, He put his body and height into good use.

The shot by Lewandowski that struck the woodwork could have entered the net!!!!!!! If it was a Goalkeeper with smaller frame, Lewandowski will shoot across goal under his armpit or in between the legs.

The Bayern forward curl it across his fully stretched body but luckily for us, he beats the goalie but not the post.

●Setplays Responsibility should be properly shared.

When Austin JayJay Okocha retired, Taye Taiwo became our Free-kick taker and John Obi Mikel was taking the corner kicks while Yakubu Aiyegbeni,Obinna Nsofor and some other strikers took turns in taking spotkicks.

En route to the 2013 Afcon triumph, John Mikel Obi was taking all the setplays until he wasted one penalty against Zambia in a match we drew 1-1 before Victor Moses won and scored two penalties against Ethiopia while Emmanuel Emenike end up scoring two free-kicks versus Cote D'Ivoire and Mali via Mikel's Assists.

In as much that Mikel could be stubbornly struck to free-kicks, he has allowed someone like Godfrey Oboabona to score one against Namibia and Kelechi Iheanacho against Argentina.

Victor Moses should simply humble himself and be taking our Corner Kicks and penalties while free-kicks closer to the box should be designated to Kelechi Iheanacho who's the most technical ball shooter in the team.

■Corner Kicks : Victor Moses, Kelechi Iheanacho, John Obi Mikel and Oghenekaro Etebo.

■Penalties: Victor Moses, Kelechi Iheanacho, Odion Ighalo

■Free-kicks: Kelechi Iheanacho, Victor Moses, Moses Simon, John Obi Mikel.

●Some players are well suited against African oppositions.

Ighalo and Shehu are such players.

Ighalo isn't in the list of Top Ten Fastest Players in this Super Eagles thereby wasting the surging runs of other attackers especially Victor Moses.

Shehu Abdullahi have shown us in the last three matches that he could become a worrisome target.

He made the slightest of contact from the blind side against Algeria which led to a penalty slotted by Brahimi, Shehu was also outpaced once again by Argentina and same thing was evidence against Poland.

Tyronne Ebuehi who is the best right back in Eredivise has proven that he's technically superior to Shehu and will seal that number 2 pretty soon.

●Ekong is a king!

William Paul is the only Super Eagle to play all minutes in our six qualifiers and the captain armband further signifies his importance to this team.

He partnered Omeruo against Zambia in Ndola, he partnered Awaziem against South Africa and it's possible that he will probably partner Eze at one point against Serbia.

Come June, Tottenham will regret letting him go starting with England vs Nigeria.

●Balogun isn't a sprinter and he has suffered for it while Idowu is more composed as a Left Wing-Back and Left Midfielder than as a Full Back.

He seem more made for 3-5-2 than any formation that will set him up for full defensive work.

■Ogenyi Onazi has added some weight and we must praise and caution his wife while it could also be some fat you gain when you're Aging e.g Anthonio Valencia.

'Eddy' should watch his weight.

●Iwobi and Iheanacho are not consistence, Reduction of shaku shaku dance will help.

■Mikel is a legend, if 'Odogwu' was part of the Polish tie, we could have scored up to 3.

Composure and Maturity let some players down which was seen with the untimed and inaccurate pass by Onazi to Musa.
