Don’t Overlook Simy For 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers – Nwosu Tells Rohr

Ahead of the 2022 FIFA World cup qualifiers, former Nigerian midfielder, Henry Nwosu has urged the Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr not to overlook Simy Nwankwo from the list of players that will be invited to the senior national team.

Simy, who has been painting the Serie A with goals, at the weekend, equaled compatriot, Yakubu Aiyegbeni’s ten-year-old record of the most goals scored by a Nigerian in Europe’s top five leagues – English Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Série A, Ligue A.

Saturday’s effort means Simy has now scored at least a goal in his last seven appearances in the Italian top-flight. In all, he has netted 17 goals in 31 appearances for Crotone this season.

The former Gil Vicente forward was omitted in Rohr’s 24-man list from the just concluded 2021 Africa Cup of Nations Cup qualifiers, where the team defeated Benin and Lesotho respectively.

In a chat with[1], Nwosu insisted that Simy’s inclusion to the Super Eagles will further create competition in the attacking position.

“I simply believe the Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr should give Simy Nwankwo another chance to prove his worth in the senior national team.

“His inclusion will certainly create more competition in the attacking position of the team and also add more value to the team. He’s a player that can add more aerial threat if well utilized.

“We’ve seen him play before in the Super Eagles and his goal-scoring form in the colours of Crotone in the Serie A should not be overlooked. He deserved a place in the Super Eagles ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.”
