Lagos - Former Nigeria international Daniel Amokachi
believes that West Bromwich Albion striker Brown Ideye is set to make a big
impact in England.
Ideye made a slow start to his career at the Hawthorns after
moving from Dynamo Kyiv In June 2014, and was linked with a move away from West
Brom during the January transfer window.
But four goals in three matches and things have turned
around for the 26-year-old former Ocean Boys marksman.
Ex Everton striker Amokachi says it was always going to take
Ideye a while to settle down in England, but feels the player is now ready to
take the Premier League by storm.
"I am not surprised that it took him this long (to
stabilise), but I believe he will shine in the EPL.
"What people don't understand is that the Premiership
is different from every other league in the world.
"You know he is coming from Ukraine and the league in
the country is not as fast as the EPL. But after about four months or
thereabouts he has picked steam and I think he would continue this way."
Amokachi also feels that Ideye is on the way to forcing
himself back into contention for the Nigerian national team.
"I am not speaking now as the assistant coach of the
Super Eagles, because I do not know the fate of my boss yet.
"But I think any coach would look the way of Brown
after scoring four goals in three matches. So, I am sure he could be on his way
back to the Super Eagles," he said.
The Super Eagles face Bolivia in a friendly game on March
26, before taking on Ghana in London three days later.For
