Lawal: Why Onuachu Always Struggles In Super Eagles


Former Nigeria international Garba Lawal has explained why in-form striker Paul Onuachu always struggle when invited to the Super Eagles.

Onuachu is the hottest Nigerian striker in Europe presently after netting 14 goals in the Belgian Jupiler.

He continued his scoring run with a brace in Genk’s 4-2 home win against Royal Antwerp this weekend.

His impressive scoring form means he tops the Belgian top-flight..

But it is a sharp contrast in the colours of the Super Eagles as he has just one goal to his name.

And commenting on Onuachu’s contrasting fortunes Lawal said on Brila FM on Tuesday:” When it comes to playing for the Super Eagles some players need time but as we all know playing for Nigeria they don’t give you time.

“In the case of Onuachu I think he puts a lot of pressure on himself whenever he is invited to the Super Eagles.

“What I will advice him is to try and bring his club form to the Super Eagles.”
