Why will Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr not recall Emmanuel Dennis after the winger shone again for Watford to bounce back from a big home thrashing by Liverpool with a goal and two assists in a win at Everton?
The dribbling wizard has been picked ahead of youngster Akinkunmi Amoo, who was the match winner for Swedish club Hammarby at Ostersunds. Ejuke drew the home team level against Krylya Sovetov for CSKA Moscow to win 3-1. It was his fourth goal of the season and he was also named the official Man of the Match as CSKA Moscow shot to third place on the Russian league table.
‘Samu’ continued his comeback after several months on the sidelines with a goal in stoppage time to extend Villarreal lead in a 4-1 win over Young Boys of Switzerland during the week in review. His lack of match fitness was obvious in the La Liga clash against Atletic Bilbao at the weekend when he played for 70 minutes, but once he is fully fit, he will again play a big role for the Europa League winners.
The former Liverpool signing followed up on his goal in the UEFA Conference League Thursday with his seventh Bundesliga goal in a 1-1 draw at Stuttgart. Awoniyi opened scoring with a superb goal from counter attack. He is most certainly one of the on-form strikers in Europe.
There will now not be any reasons why Gernot Rohr should continue to overlook Emmanuel Dennis for the Super Eagles as the former Club Brugge winger has continued to shine in the Premier League with promoted Watford. He scored his third goal of the season and provided two assists in 26 minutes of action for Watford to bounce back from a home humiliation by Liverpool with a big 5-2 win at Everton.
Napoli Europa League campaign is now back on course thanks in part to the on-form striker, who came off the bench to score in a 3-0 home win over Legia Warsaw of Poland. His form is such that he has now been linked with the richest clubs in world football – Newcastle United, Manchester City and PSG. And should he carry on such a form, it will not be long before he lands at one of these top clubs.
