Who should be the main Super Eagles striker?

SportsJournJohn 1d

The international break has come and gone,waving football fans with great and not so great fixtures. In Africa, it seems very difficult for teams to score goals, with most results ending in a goalless draw or a one-nil victory. The only teams that seem to break free of such droughts are the North African teams. Teams like Algeria and Morocco seemed to score for fun, and this can be attributed to the technical nature of the teams.

In Nigeria, it is a totally different story, we just can't score more than once in a match. We played 2 international friendlies, against two North African teams in Algeria and Tunisia. We lost the first one to Algeria 1-0 and the second ended in a stalemate, drawing 1-1 with Tunisia, both matches were played in Austria. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

Our problem against Algeria steamed from how the Desert Foxes were quick in their transition from defense to attack, their technically gifted players really came to the fore and caused problems for our very lacklustre defenders. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

In attack, we were toothless, wasting the few chances we had. Paul Onuachu, the starting stroker that night was terribly abysmal. He was a waste of space in the side and didn't offer anything going forward. Kelechi Iheanacho was a better replacement in the second half who almost delivered with a goal in stoppage time.

Against Tunisia, we took the lead through Iheanacho, although he went on to not convert a penalty which could have made the match very comfortable for us. We were left to rue his mistake as Tunisia scored the equaliser, the match ending on a draw. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

With such abysmal performance, I ask the question

WHO SHOULD BE NIGERIA'S MAIN STRIKER?

We already know that Odion Ighalo has retired from international duty. We are therefore left with the following options;

1. Kelechi Iheanacho (Leicester City) View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

2. Victor Osimhen (Napoli) View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

3. Paul Onuachu ( KRC GENK) View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

4. Cyriel Dessers (KRC GENK) View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

These four men are our available striking options. So who should be the man to help us in attack?
