    Now that we have the best strikers inform can we return to the good 4 4 2 formation days?

    Imagine having osihmen and sadiq upfront. I guess any defence will have alot to do in trying to stop these guy’s, both of them are skillfull and can assist each other as we know sadiq is a master assistant just like osihmen; both of them can cross the ball into the box incase the wingers fails to do so.

    The tree man midfield which is mostly used in a 433 formation also have it’s advantage of possession and solidity in defending. But it doesn’t produce lot of goals like 4 4 2 formation onless you have scoring wingers and midfielders that can raise the goal margin like e.g., iwobi chukueze etc.

    Talking about iwobi. I am happy that he has been playing as a wingback or winger. Though I prefer him as number 10 for eagles. But playing wingback will improve his defensive qualities and fitness, wish will enable him to stand alone with Ndidi as two midfielders in a 4 4 2 formation the likes of onazi and Mikel paref in a similar role becos, Mikel, though not a defender but have good defensive qualities after been converted to a DM in Chelsea.

    I personally think a 442 formation setup starring sadiq and osihmen will be like bomb blast to even the best deffenders in the world.

    Possible 4 4 2 formation at the eagles highest capacity.

    Sadiq osihmen.

    This team can become worldchampion. Expo for Rohr.

    Sincerely speaking I’m happy he’s fully back. I also hope and pray he will stay injury free to amass playing time, poke in the GOALS and justify not only his record signing but also the faith and confidence reposed in him by the coach and the entire management

    He might also need to THUNDER his village people to have enough breathable space

    On the other hand,how I wish Gernot Rohr would not have to select this boy again in the SE forthcoming matches because it is every time he comes to Nigeria that he would have a setback. But then, even if I were the coach I wouldn’t have the liver even with the presence of the ‘club high flying’ Paul Onuachu, it is still Victor Osimhen who would always make all the difference in SE attack ever since the departure of Ighalo.

    His presence was magnificent against Lesotho and the Leone Stars. SE have only struggled all through his absence. He alone can run the stadium tirelessly for the entire match duration

    Look at his work rate, marksmanship, assists, fearless look, agility, rugged spirit, powerful play, level headed and tailored finishes, thirst for the ball and hunger for for goals. He doesn’t even wait to be worked for but would get deep to get the ball and pacy enough to rightly despatch it.

    He’s such a complete striker and goal poacher I have loved since his U-17 playing days

    Little wonder the only song Gennaro Gattuso knew then was “get me Victor”

    Nigeria should leave him out of the March AFCON qualifiers to settle down at Naples.Victor Osimhen needs both a physical as well as an emotionsl rest

    The club may not readily allow him to answer NFF call. They may want to know one or two things about the standard of the turf on the stadium he is going to play on. The Club may refuse him to honor the NFF call if the New Lagos stadium or the Benin City stadium is to be used. Uyo stadium may be acceptable to the Napoli club. They paid $80 million for Osihmen’s services.
