Super Eagles: Getting selection right is the magic wand

    Jose Peseiro

    The magic wand Jose Peseiro displayed against Indomitable Lions of Cameroon on Saturday was the dropping of Samuel Chukwueze from the starting line and eventually left out of the game.

    Chukwueze must raise his game while wearing the national colours of Nigeria. He is a fantastic player no doubt about that, but he has been coming short of expectations in recent games for the Super Eagles.

    Peseiro was able to put smiles on the faces of Nigerians and one of the factors responsible was that, he got his selections right. The substitutes like Kenneth Omeruo and Paul Onuachu did not disappoint Nigerians.

    I hope if Chukwueze is given the opportunity to play against Angola, he will be thorough in the discharge of his duties, no faulty final third that puts the team under pressure.

    The AC Milan winger should also realise that Ahmed Musa is patiently waiting for the chance to play, and if given, he may come into the team with more fire play to ensure victory for Nigeria.

    The bottom line is that any player who did not live up to expectations should be dropped.

    Zaidu Sanusi is another player that needs to increase the quality of his game, although, I think Sanusi was not fully fit against Cameroon.

    Anyway, Peseiro could bench Sanusi and push Calvin Ughelumba to play his role, while also giving Omeruo the starting shirt in the defence. That was how the Super Eagles in the last minutes of the game against Cameroon, which fetched Nigeria the second goal.

    Peseiro, I love your smiles and I wish the smiles continues against Angola on Friday.
