Bordeaux forward, Samuel Kalu has been hailed as a ‘perfect replacement’ for Victor Moses, according to Super Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr.
The 21-year-old has been a breath of fresh air for the three-time African Champions and proved a real menace on his debut against Seychelles and followed it up with a brilliant goal against Libya in Uyo during the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
Chelsea star, Moses called it quits from the national team after the 2018 FIFA World Cup and there were calls from some quarters to talk him out of retirement. But Rohr looks to be comfortable with the impressive Kalu and showered the winger with praises.
Nigeria will play their next AFCON qualifier against South Africa in November and currently leads Group E with nine points.
