Wilson Will need Time
Edward Junior Wilson
By Wleh Bedell
Indonesian club Semen Padang finisher Edward Junior Wilson
is the man been called upon to replace temperamental striker
Francis Doe for the Nigeria clash as well as the other two
meetings with Malawi and Ghana.
The player who last played for the Lone Star then as a local
against the Sparrow Hawks of Togo in a joint 2006 Nations
and World Cup qualifier has been in the international
wilderness for more than six years and will thus need time
to readjust to the international folklore.
Known as the “Liberian Adriano” for his strong left foot and
artillery shots, Wilson can certainly help the Lone Star,
but there will be time as such is needed for one to settle.
There is however no doubt that he can also deliver on his second coming,
there should nonetheless not be huge expectation but much
hope as the lad has been on the sideline for more than a
month due to a hamstring, and having resumed training for
less than a fortnight, the net buster will have to be
patient with as time is just the right word for him as far
as performance is concerned. Wilson is quite a consummate
finisher who was top scorer in the 2009/’10 season of
Indonesia who will need time to form the partnership with
any of the front men.
