Nigeria's Etebo 'disappointed' to miss out on facing Ajayi in Championship clash

Oluwasemilogo 'Semi' Ajayi may be gentle and somewhat self-effacing off the pitch, but on it the West Bromwich Albion defender is a monstrous beast of a man, using his 1.93m, 83kg frame to its most devastating advantage.

The Nigeria cenreback is a study in contrasts, with his calm demeanour disappearing the minute he puts his cleats on. Teammates regularly comment on his hard-nosed approach to training, and it is a trait that serves him well as he has all but snatched a starting Super Eagles jersey...

Nigeria ride depth, central midfield partnership past Guinea and into AFCON round of 16

Kenneth Omeruo's late header saw Nigeria clinch a spot in the round of 16 at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

A swathe of relegation-threatened clubs in Spain opted to turn to Nigerian talent during the January transfer window in order to give themselves a boost ahead of the latter stages of the campaign.

Barring any unfortunate, last-minute training-ground injury, Oghenekaro Etebo should be in the Las Palmas starting eleven to face Barcelona and Lionel Messi on Thursday.

Since joining the club at the tail end of the winter transfer window, Etebo has featured in all four of his new club's games, notably stealing the show on his debut, a 1-0 victory over Malaga.

Having moved from Feirense in Portugal, Etebo is having to contend with a step up in class ahead of the World Cup, but so far, he appears...

The German has confirmed that he is advising his players to make moves, and will even help them in the process.

But who are the players who really need to explore their options? Here are five that need to seriously consider their futures:

1. Odion Ighalo

After a blazing first half of last...
