Nigeria played out a 2-2 draw with Ukraine in Tuesday’s international friendly which drew a lot of reactions from football fans on social media. With the fans singling out a player Gernot Rohr should not invite into the Super Eagles set-up for now declaring that he isn’t good enough.
The Super Eagles enjoyed an outstanding first-half display over Andriy Shevchenko’s men and deservedly raced into a 2-0 lead through Joe Aribo and Victor Osimhen’s strikes. In the second half, the three-time African champions surrendered their lead, allowing Manchester City midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko and Roman Yaremchuk level for the Yellow and Blue.
On the back of the drawn result, football enthusiasts took to Twitter to express their feelings concerning the inclusion of Anderson Esiti as most fans think he’s not good enough to play for the national team.
But can we agree that Moses Simon is surplus to requirement and new boy Anderson Esiti is not yet Super Eagles Material??

Ukraine 2-2 Nigeria.
– Uzoho is back as number 1.
– Aribo with number 10 shirt secured.
– Chukwueze & Kalu must learn not to be selfish and do more of final passes.
– Osimhen is the new number 9.
– Esiti should not come back.
Good performance, good game.

At least we now know that Esiti has no place in this team . He came on and the team broke down, losing balls upandan and chasing chicken

Osimhen is hungry and on fire
Chukwueze needs to play more with his team mates
Uzoho remains our best for now
Aribo dream debut and ready to fit in
Kalu exciting artist
Aina here to stay
Bonaventure glimpse of hope
Esiti not needed. #UKRNGA

Friendlies are for experiments and the inference today is that Anderson Esiti is not good enough to play for Dominion Chapel FC Houston tallness of Super Eagles.

Rohr should never play Esiti abeg, the guy na akpa.

May we never see Esiti again.. he’s shit! Semi Ajayi, Simon and Etebo should be squad players at best.
Many positives tho.. first half we saw a glimpse of how dangerous this team can be with creative midfielders. WE CAN BE FRIGHTENLY GOOD #UKRNGA

Still on the #UKRNGA game
– Uzoho is still average
– Torino is lucky to have Aina
– The no. 10 guy is a modern day footballer
– Osihmen is our No.9
– When will Iwobi know how to score?
– Kalu and Chukwueze are there to stay
– Esiti is not ready yet.
– Super Eagles at the way.
