Former Super Eagles utility man, Garba Lawal has urged Coach Stephen Keshi to play his strongest team against Bosnia in their World Cup clash on Saturday if the Eagles must remain in Brazil.
Garba who blamed Keshi for the draw against Iran said the Bosnia game is the one that would determine Nigeria’s fate at the World Cup and that the coach cannot afford to toy with the game
According to Garba, Keshi blundered by throwing young Ramon Azeez into a big stage like the World Cup, adding that the selection and substitution was faulty and that was responsible for the draw
“I think Keshi should take the blame for the Super Eagles inability to find answer to the Iranian tight defence. He should have found a way to break down the Iranian defence and put in a goal or two. Keshi should own up and psyche the boys up for the task ahead. It is not good for him to blame the boys
” I will prefer Keshi to start Osaze alongside Emenike in the attack while the midfield should learn to play more purposefullly while our defenders must get ready for a very difficult time containing the Edin Dzeko led Bosnia attack. I just hope Yobo will be able to marshal the defence well with Oboabona an injury doubt for the match,” he said.
The former FC Rotherdam star however believes that Keshi has what it takes to guide the Super Eagles to soar over Bosnia, adding that the players must gear up for the game of their lives if they want to progress.
