Predict and Win , Nigeria Vs Iceland – Lineup , Formation – Time 4PM
“Nigeria Vs Iceland : World Cup On June 22nd At 4pm”
1. Inability to defend set pieces properly (na this problem make me tire for Arsenal under Arsene. W). Against England, Serbia, & Czech we conceded from set plays or crosses into the box. So why the f*ck are they not working on this?
With tall players in that defense like Balogun and Troost, we should be imposing at set plays, but the opposite is the case. It frustrates the hell outta moi.
Iceland are a mean bunch when it comes to crosses and set pieces. As a matter of fact, it’s their ace move. That spells a lot of trouble for the Eagles. Unless we limit their opportunities to fling crosses and even long throws into the box.
2. We are not creating many chances: Another big problem that was glaring even during the friendlies. Who is our most creative player? Is it Mikel, Moses or Iwobi?
We can’t even say.
Each team possesses a clear-cut creator-in-chief. But not Nigeria.
Moses is looking to pick up that role but his crosses are too wayward and Ighalo isn’t even imposing in the air so no point sending those crosses in.
Iwobi would have been the best choice because he has immense control in tight spaces, has pace, can beat a man comfortably and more importantly can pick a key pass.
But the problem is that he can’t do all that playing from the wings. I watched him play for Arsenal against Crystal Palace on January 1st 2017. He played in that ’10’ role in the absence of Mr. Ozil. And boy was he good!
We saw against England that the dude is more comfortable dictating play from the midfield.
However, Rorh won’t let him take that role for Nigeria because of a certain Mikel Obi. These days Mikel doesn’t create anything. So why not send him to the base of midfield alongside Ndidi?
Actually, I wouldn’t drop Etebo for him. I’d prefer a midfield trio of Iwobi, Etebo and Ndidi (this midfield trio has vritually everything you need). Then up front I’ll have Moses, Ighalo and Iheanacho (on the right) as my forward line.
I don’t see Grenot Rorh having the balls to make these calls, though. And so I see us struggling badly against Iceland.
However, I still hope they find a way to win because it’s what we all want. #SoarSuperEagles.
