    Another sweet player Finidi invited. I must commend Finidi for his invitations but are the other guys in camp or they are still striking in Lagos?

      Hope your opinion about him doesn’t change on Friday

  • What formation will Finidi play and which tactical approach will they adopt?

    It will definitely be different from the extremes of Jose Peseiro who swung widely between all out attack to ultra defensive.

    I think Finidi will settle for just a mildly attacking approach. But their defence was porous against Mali. They left gaping holes to be exploited and allowed themselves to be hopelessly drawn out of position. If these continue against South Africa, we will be punished.

    The goal scoring opportunities must be sufficiently imaginative and our coach should be able to read games in real-time to change course if needed.

    I do have trepidations on the one hand but feel Finidi is driven to succeed. And the players too.
