Roll out the Welcome Mat. Nkufo is on his Way.


He's Coming Home

  1. not to be a debby downer… but… Kufo isn’t exactly coming off a multiple goal showing in the cup. Do you think his lack of opportunities with the Swiss team was a lack of service from his team or lack of execution on his part?

  2. Switzerland are a very defensive team anyway. When they went down to ten men against Chile, Nkufo was labouring on his own i a 4-4-1. Against Spain, the opposition had the ball for most of the match. I didn’t see today’s game, but I would expect he had more opportunities in the 69 minutes he played.

  3. I would rather think Nkufo’s play should be judged on his play with FC Twente rather than Switzerland’s play at the World Cup.
