    Interesting to know who pair the other between Ogwuche,Bameyi and Frederick in the central defence after Ogwuche’s Man Of The Match performance in our last game.

  • Greenturf 1 year ago

    Alternatively,the trio of Bameyi,Ogwuche and Frederick could play in a three man defence in a 3.5.2 formation.

      @ Greenturf, yes 352 would have been idea in this scenerio but do we have ball jugglers in this team to play that 5man midfield? I will say a big NO. Apart from Daga who unfortunately is injured, there has been no other midfielder in this team that can confidently move ball about in our midfield. So suggesting the coach use that system will only amount to total collapse of the team as it will confuse the team and ultimately play into the hands of the opposition. Playing systems is dependent on quality of players available to execute.

  • How about our weak midfield.

    This can pose a lot of pressure on the defense.

    I wish you best of luck

    I know we will beat them.

      Our midfield isn’t weak becaue we were never dominated by oppositions in this playoffs aside the second half of our game against high flying senegal which incidently,are the most in-form team in Africa.

  • Gambia may be tough but winning is our target(nigeria)
