    Even the Poster or writer is confused here starting Ndidi is dropped and still put Ndidi and Onyeka in his lineup instead of Iwobi
    Confused set of posters in the CS

    Dropping Bassey & Ndidi is a good move but playing 2 midfielders am not yet convinced unless the 2 wingers will drop back to support when we are defending but seems a better starting 11.

    Moffi should have replaced Iheabacho
    and not Onuachu in the first match. He would have provided a better support for Osimhen than. He is very aggressive and a consummate goal scorer. Let’s see what happens today with this line up.

    We must defend so strong and ferociously in defensive midfield and center defence, coaching crew must enact a code of conducts which must obligate the recalled players for Super Eagles that they must perform so strongly and ferociouly and defend and die for SE jersy just like they play and perform in their clubs, if the player does not obligate this code of conducts he must be excluded from SE for a length of time, then he can return back with hard conditions. Pesiero must put a defensive pattern of play fristly then he can attack the rival, if he loose defensive sensibility SE any team can beat SE even if in Abuja.
