Osimhen, Iheanacho To Lead Super Eagles Attack Vs Benin

Victor Osimhen and Kelechi Iheanacho are expected to lead Nigeria’s attack against the Squirrels of Benin on Saturday, reports Completesports.com.

The duo paired each other in training on Thursday and showed perfect understanding.

Iheanacho is the team’s most in-form striker at the moment with seven goals in his last four appearances for Premier League club Leicester City.

    Nobody above mistake. We are not playing in Lagos this Saturday.

    However, that is a perfect combination. I have said that before now that Nacho should play behind Osimhen.

    Sodiq should come in for Osimhen in the second half.

    Sodiq should lead the attack in the second half but I don’t think the gaffer can risk that.

    He will prefer Osimhen to play the entire 90 minutes of the game.

    Hmmm. Well, good luck to the gaffer and his team. God bless Nigeria!!!

      Good if the coach stick with this combination Osimhen and Iheanacho. Because the two we’re very aggressive player and they will look for goal in every angle is a plus for us having Iheanacho with this form

    “The encounter will hold at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos on Saturday ” what an erroneous report. Don’t you edit before posting…..this is really becoming unacceptable journalism report from you guys there

  • Hahahaha a comedy of errors. Anyway, we may not know the true formation or players to start the game until match day. Owngoalnigeria.com is reporting a different thing than complete sports so who is giving concrete information. Whoever the coaches chooses, im confident the team will be victorious.

  • Season of error

  • Please is Ighalo playing, someone should help out. I will love to see Jude Ighalo in our first eleven. Someone should should inform Rohr b4 it will be too late oooooo.
