Four Best Qualities Of Latest Super Eagles Invitee, Ikouwem Udoh Which Can Profit The Team  Enyimba left-back Ikouwem Udoh has replaced crocked Samuel Kalu in the Super Eagles list slated to face Seychelles and Egypt this month.

The 19-year-old provides another interesting option for Gernot Rohr's team and after skippering the Flying Eagles to World Cup qualification in Poland later this year, will be expected to showcase his bountiful talents and prove his quality if handed game time in any of the games.  

Below, we will look at the four of his strengths which the team can benefit from..

1) His agility when coming up against opponents: The youngster is well known for his sprightly and quick moves when squaring up against rival players and this is will add up defensively for the team.

2) His marauding runs down the flanks will be a good fit for the team: During the Flying Eagles U-20 adventure in Niger, Udoh was visibly one of the busiest players through the flanks and was time and again seen getting in behind opposing defences thanks to the menacing pace which he possess.

3) A physical player who will be another option in demanding clashes: Not minding his tender years, the full-back is less likely to shy away from duels and his indulgence to physical battles in one-versus-one situations will come in handy.

4) His ability to put in pin point crosses in the box: Big players like Odion Ighalo, Paul Onuachu who are always sniffing around in the danger zones and waiting to pounce on in swinging crosses will benefit very well from him here.

His ability to make nice crosses into the area and pick out teammates with the best of cutbacks is one extra quality Rohr will be pleased to have in the team.
