    Now… what baffles me about this lad at his club level is that since last month, Coach Gerard have been playing him as a Winger in a 4-3-3 formation and not as a Midfielder anymore! He has been performing well as he as always been doing even at the Middle role though scoring goals too…But, Could this spell doom for Nigeria?? Knowing fully well most of us were happy we now have a Box-Box midfielder and a potential No.10 as at last year and then this is happening!

      It’s not a problem when we have Etebo/Azeez and Ndidi in our medfield. In my own opinion, the best formation to use with this set of players is 4-4-2 Iwobi from the right side-Ndidi-Azeez-Aribo from the left side, Nancho and Osinmen as strikers.

  • I guess it will affect his defensive game negatively as a box to box midfielder but his offensive will improve.

    Sorry i dont see him as a box to box midfielder. Though he scores against brazil and ukraine he still havnt displayed much on that midfield role to guarantee him automatic start i still think we need onazi back to that role he his so natural in that role. Aribo and iwobi should battle for one shirt while aziz and onazi battle for the other etebo and ndidi can also draw same rope until the likes of ovie ejiara and ebere eze comes in
