Will Chukwueze struggle for game time in Super Eagles? 

Super Eagles young and vibrant winger Samuel Chukwueze faces stern competition on the flanks for the Super Eagles in 2020, suggests Afrofooty.

The reason I say these are:

- Nigeria tends to produce wingers, centre and defensive midfielders aplenty.

- In the coming months, I expect us to unearth some new, fresh, vibrant and super fast wingers.

- if you compare Chukwueze's performance this season to the last, he has actually regressed.

- if he loses his (shakey) starting position in the Super Eagles, he will struggle to regain it.

- finally, unlike Moses Simon or Samuel Kalu, Chukwueze is not that strong defensively which makes him an un-viable option in a 3-5-2 formation.

Although he is still scoring goals in the Spanish league, the 20 year old's performances have quite caught the eye the same way as last season.

He currently remains an integral part of the Super Eagles.
