Futbalgalore.com’s Ademetan Abayomi looks at his best XI who did not make the Super Eagles squad for Seychelles;
Sebastien Osigwe (Kriens)
If the call-ups were indeed based on current form, I would have gone for Sebastien Osigwe.
The ex Flying Eagles glovesman has had a reinvigorated season with Kriens and contributed immensely to the team’s inspiring position in the Swiss Challenge League table.
Benefit of the doubt to the coach, he knows best.
Chima Akas (Kalmar FF)
Akas is very agile, pacey and defends so well.
He has been an ever present member of the Kalmar side since his move from Enyimba in the winter transfer window.
Sincere Seth (Yeni Malatyaspor)
The quiet assassin needs no introduction to football lovers.
He was practically ever present and a rock for U23 team at Rio 2016.
Seth is one of the most complete defenders I’ve watched and he surely will hit the top with such high standard displays and excellent technical ability.
Coupled with his exposure and national team experience, Seth is most definitely a player fit for the bill.
Adesoye Oyewole (Orenburg FC)
He has adapted so well into the team.
The man who does majority of the aerial and hard tackling blocks is the Orenburg FC player.
He lays exactly like Leon Balogun.
Godswill Ekpolor (Haecken)
Godswill Ekpolor is one of the few players at Haecken who have that utility quality. He’s so adept at both laterals and can also be used effectively in the defensive midfield role. If there was any defender who merited a call into this team, it was Ekpolor.
Ichull Lordson (AC Kajaani)
AC Kajaani lively performer this season. He is destined for the top but has had so many parking spaces along the way to the top.
So glad he has finally rediscovered the touch of class that made him a toast.
He has been in an electrifying form. His mates know his quality already. I need not extol his virtues myself.
Ifeanyi Matthew (Lillestrom)
The Lillestrom man is exceptionally good in shielding the back line, he’s fantastic in breaking the opposition attack as well as initiating attacks of his team.
The bruising bulldozer never plays at anything less than full throttle, and he is not one to pull out of tackles due to safety concerns.
His energy and physicality are much appreciated by Lillestrom fans.
Arnaut Danjuma (Club Brugge)
Moved from a more advance role to a deeper position, Danjuma is a proficient instigator of attacking play from his deep-lying position, but is especially adept at running on the wings and cutting in from the inside.
Dennis Bonaventure (Club Brugge)
Few players are as crucial to a team’s style and system like Bonavebture is to Club Brugge.
He is an elegant dribbler who constantly caused havoc going forward.
Such is a gem like him.
Nobody, absolutely nobody can question Bonaventure’s talent and work ethics.
Chisom Egbuchulam (Falkenbergs)
The Falkenbergs winger has been phenomenal this season and scored 11 goals in all competitions, emphasizing his potency even in the thick of events.
He’s got fine statistics too and has shown such great class in him.
Anthony Nwakaeme (Trabzonspor)
The former Hapoel Beer Sheva striker enjoyed a phenomenal game with Trabzonspor in a 4-0 win over Galatasaray. He scored a brace.
Nwakaeme combines his physical stature with his supreme athleticism and technical ability.
With the physique of a bruising target man but the sublime skills honed mimicking moves and a powerful right foot like Romario in his prime.
