Ndidi fantastic, can easily play for Brazil – Journalist


An Austrian-based Nigerian journalist Samuel Thompson has expressed delight with the  performance of Wilfred Ndidi in the Super Eagles training session at their camp in Austria, insisting the midfielder would easily play for Brazil.

Thompson said Ndidi has shown enough quality to be regarded among the top five midfielders in the world in his position.

“I watched closely the game against Czech Republic and I was stunned at his energy level. Many watching on television won’t see it. Ndidi played almost every position during the game. He didn’t stop running. That’s incredible,” Thompson said.

He went further by suggesting that Ndidi improves everyday as the performance he displayed against Czech Republic in the 0-1 loss didn’t match his showing in yesterday’s training session.

”I watched them in training and he appears to have improved again. His positional sense is fantastic. With or without the ball his movement is top notch. After watching Brazil at close quarters I dare say Ndidi can play for them,” Thompson concluded.
