Sporting Charleroi of Belgium striker, Victor Osimhen, Villarreal of Spain’s Samuel Chukwueze and Levante of Spain winger, Moses Simon continue staging bold claims for starting spots in the Super Eagles, following their dazzling performances in the team’s training sessions.
Footballlive.ng gathered that Osimhen, Chukwueze and Simon got back to where they stopped before the match against South Africa on Saturday, as they were all at their best once again in Asaba.
Such it was in the final training toward Tuesday’s friendly against Uganda, that Osimhen, Chukwueze and Simon all showed greater determination for starting shirts against The Cranes, but Eagles’ coach, Gernot Rohr appeared to have made up his mind for the trio to start from the bench.
Nonetheless, Osimhen looked very lively during the session with his pace, tricks and skills proving to be a handful, but he twice wasted big chances from open net situations.
Similarly, Chukwueze produced quick interchange of passes with Osimhen that saw him come up against Theophilus Afelokhai, who spread out to block the ball, but the Villarreal kid expertly slotted his effort home.
On his part, Simon is battling hard to outwit Samuel Kalu, who already has the trust of Rohr on the right side of attack, as the Franco-German gaffer seeks to fill the vacuum of an unceremonious retirement from the national team by Chelsea winger, Victor Moses.
However, in Monday’s session, Simon was the main man on the flanks, while Kalu was casual and was limping towards the end of the session.
