Anthony Nwakaeme, The Man Who Could Make All The Difference for Nigeria, In the World Cup Qualifier Against Cameroun

Gernot Rohr, Nigeria national team head coach, may be looking for that man who is creative enough to make something out of nothing; the man who is lethal enough to power through such rugged and tough defense formation that Cameroon could pose, to steal the ball into the back of the goal net at the slightest moment... that Man is Anthony Nwakaeme!

The Old War Horse Get His First National Team Call Up - When it Mattered Most
Little wonder most Nigeria football community knows little or nothing of this dare devil striker. And for all he has achieved for himself over the past seven years or so, Nwakaeme is getting his first National team call up at a time like this.

One thing that set Nwakaeme apart is his increasing consistence, while most players slow down as the years roll by, Nwakaeme is like a well brewed wine that gets better with age.

Who is Anthony Nwakaeme?
Hapoel Be'er Sheva striker, Anthony Nwakaeme has been voted the best player in the 2016/2017 Israeli top flight... John Ogu, his teammate confirmed to us.

Nwakaeme's Style of Play:
Power player in the mold of Daniel Amokachie. Strong and rugged attack minded player...can breathe down on defenders and cause so much trouble for them in the run of play. Something so unique about Nwakaeme is his creative ability and his brandish leg over as well as his bullish drives into eighteen yard box, difficult to pull him down. Like a war horse, speed, strength and stamina is his hallmark.

"Give Tony 10 minutes play time and he will surely find the back of the net." said John Ogu, teammate and fellow national team player.

Why did it take so long to hand him a call up to the National team?
Super Eagles coaches may have prefered players from elite leagues in Europe: Premier League, Laliga, Serial A... Isreali league is a little modest to attract top notch call up for a competitive position like that of a striker. But Nwakaeme is a more skillful and very intelligent striker... full of experience. Perhaps, he is better fit for a more physical game as excepted from the Lions of Cameroon.
