Francis Uzoho

My father beats me when I play football – Super Eagles star

Our Super Eagles goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho has revealed that his father used to beat him anytime he steps out of the house to play football, as the game was not a priority in his house.

 

 

The Naija goalkeeper says his father never supported him playing football, and he got flogged anytime he disobeyed the order.

 

Speaking with ng_supereagles on Instagram, he said: “My dad was against me playing football because education was the priority in our family. He flogged me anytime I went to play football.”

 

 

He then went on to say that his then coach convinced his father to allow him to play the beautiful game. He added: “It was my coach back then that convinced my dad to allow me to pursue my career and he loosened up a bit, but that didn’t mean I still didn’t get beaten by him.”

 

Francis Uzoho went on to become the first choice of the Naija Super Eagles at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

 

 

Was Uzoho’s father right to beat him for playing football?

Review

Man City stars: Aguero, De Bruyne

Premier League review: Manchester City

Defending champions Manchester City are 2nd on the table and the big surprise is not their position, but they are 25 points behind leaders Liverpool and the number of points they have dropped.

 

The Cityzens have won 57 points from 28 matches. They won 18, drew 3 and lost 7. The Saints have scored a total of 68 goals and conceded 31 goals. They are the best scoring side in the league, and they have three players in double figures.

 

Man City’s problem started with an injury to Aymeric Laporte. John Stones and Nicolás Otamendi did not step up, and they conceded some poor goals, and it has cost them the season. Mathematically, they can still win the league, but that looks impossible.

Leicester City and Nigeria star: Wilfred Ndidi

Ndidi named 4th best midfielder in the EPL so far

Our Naija midfield machine Wilfred Ndidi has been named among the top 10 best midfielders in the Premier League so far this season by football facts and statistics website Squawka.

 

The Super Eagles midfielder has been in superb form since he joined Leicester City in 2017, but his performances this season have been outstanding, and top clubs are rumoured to be interested in him.

 

In the top 10 midfield rating by Squawka, Ndidi came 4th, with only Jack Grealish, Jordan Henderson and Kevin de Bruyne coming ahead of the 23-year-old Naija man.

 

On the statistics of Ndidi, Squawka says: “Wilfred Ndidi has made the most tackles (92) and interceptions (61) of any Premier League midfielder this season.”

 

Is Ndidi among the best midfielders in the Premier League?

Review

Wilfred Ndidi, Brendan Rodgers and Kelechi Iheanacho

Premier League Review: Leicester City

Wilfred Ndidi and compatriot Kelechi Iheanacho have been an important member of the Leicester City team, who are 3rd on the table and they are heading for another Champions League appearance.

 

The Foxes have won 53 points from 29 matches. They won 16, drew 5 and lost 8. The Saints have scored a total of 58 goals and conceded 28 goals. They have the third best attack and defence and their success is based on the entire team.

 

Brendan Rodgers has been doing a good job with Leicester. Our own Ndidi has become arguably the most important player in the team and Kelechi Iheanacho also look to have stepped up for the Foxes this season.

Super Eagles stars: Osimhen, Chukwueze

Arsenal, Liverpool, Juventus, Inter and Leicester battle to sign Naija star

Our own Victor Osimhen has been the in fine form throughout the 2019-2020 season, banging in goals in the league and the Champions League, and his performances have drawn the attention of top clubs in Europe.

 

Premier League sides Arsenal, Liverpool and Leicester City, where his compatriots Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho play, as well as Serie A clubs Juventus and Inter Milan, are said to be interested in the Nigerian.

 

Speaking with Guardian, former Naija player Friday Elaho advised the striker to think well before a move. He said: “Osimhen shouldn’t just rush to any club, but rather he should settle down and think of a good club where he can play regularly and not where he would be benched. He shouldn’t think about money now because money will come once he starts playing regularly and remain focused.”

 

Which club will you advise Osimhen to join?

Review

Chelsea players: Tammy Abraham, Azpilicueta, Pulisic, Barkley

Premier League review: Chelsea

The Blues are 4th on the table, and club legend frank Lampard has to a level done a good job, but some fans of the club are not satisfied with some of their results.

 

Chelsea have won 48 points from 29 matches. They won 14, drew 6 and lost 9. The Saints have scored a total of 51 goals and conceded 39 goals. The Blues have the highest losses and goals conceded among teams in the top 7.

 

Goals for the Blues are spread across the team, which makes it better for Chelsea, but the problem is their defence. They concede too many goals and their defensive lapses started when they sold David Luiz to Arsenal. They have to step up or slip up.

Leicester City and Super Eagles star: Wilfred Ndidi

Ndidi urged to join Arsenal amid Partey link

Our Naija midfield machine, Wilfred Ndidi has been the in exceptional form since he joined Leicester City in January 2017, and Super Eagles legend Dosu Joseph has suggested he joins Arsenal, who are interested in Thomas Partey.

 

In an interview with Goal Dosu said: "Ndidi is a workaholic player. He has been exceptional and has been playing very well since he signed for Leicester City. If he moves to Arsenal it will be good and I have no doubt he will do so well there. If they want him it will really be good for his career. Arsenal have a lot of fans here in Nigeria and Africa, so it will be a great move for him."

 

The Gunners are interested in signing Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey for £43m and my11 takes a look at who has had a better season between the Ghanaian and Ndidi in the 2019-2020 season.

Review

Marcus Rashford and Odion Ighalo

Premier League review: Manchester United

The Red Devils, who are 5th on the table have been blowing hot and cold all season with some of their key players out injured, while some have been inconsistent.

 

Manchester United have won 45 points from 29 matches. They won 12, drew 9, and lost 8. The Saints have scored a total of 44 goals and conceded 30 goals. Marcus Rashford is the top scorer with 14 goals in the league.

Review

Nuno Espirito Santo

Premier League review: Wolverhampton Wanderers

The Wanderers, who are 6th on the log, have picked up from where they stopped last season and despite the poor start to the season, Nuno Espirito Santo's team have stepped up.

 

Wolves have 43 points in 29 matches. They have won 10, drew 13, and lost 6. The Seagulls have scored a total of 41 goals and conceded 34 goals. They have the joint highest draw in the league along with Arsenal.

 

Wolves had a poor start to the season and many thought it’s the second season syndrome, but they recovered well and are 6th on the log, and the key to their performance this season is Adama Traore, who really improved and stepped up.
