Former Super Eagles captain Nwankwo Kanu has backed the team to beat Argentina in their final Group D game in Saint Petersburg at the 2018 FIFA World Cup on Tuesday, reports Completesportsnigeria. com.
Gernot Rohr’s men sit in second position in Group D with three points following their 2-0 win against Iceland on Friday.
Argentina occupy last place with one point after they were thrashed 3-0 by Croatia on Thursday.
A win against the South Americans will send the Super Eagles into the second round while a draw will be enough depending on the outcome of the game between Croatia and Iceland.

Nigeria vs Argentina
Super eagles should play a certain 3-5-2/3-4-3 formation
Balogun – Ekong – Omeruo
Ebuehi – Mikel – Etobo – Ndidi – Moses
Kelechi – Iwobi
Subs (attack options) if we need goals as the game progresses (3-4-3)/(3-3-4) formation
– Musa for Moses
– Simy for Kelechi
– Ogu for Mikel
Subs (defence options) if we are up by a goal as the game progresses (4-5-1)/(3-5-1-1) formation
– Musa for Ighalo
– Ogu for Kelechi
– Joel / Onazi for Moses
– Our Players MUST be wary NOT to fall for various antics from factors which I don’t want to mention in order not to provoke the football powers.
– We have played our last two matches and have penalties awarded against us. So I believe our players must be calculative, exhibits sheer committed, focus and work as a team when defending and attacking. There should never be a single seconds of lack in concentration!!!
We must not pack the bus. Just play the normal free flowing game (starved them of the ball and be ready to take risks and half a chance when an oppourtity presents itself).
Coach Gohr MUST make timely substitutions and players MUST be properly gingered up before the match
The Eagles MUST play from the blast of the whistle !!!!!
We all know say FIFA no go like make Messi just waka like that so them go play politics small, but with God, we will come out tops.
All Super Eagles need is don’t panic…CONCENTRATION, FOCUS, DETERMINATION, SHEER TEAM-PLAY will play a key role to getting a good result.
Ur head is very correct
