Odion Ighalo is Nigeria’s most experienced striker – but the 29-year-old is still a relative novice on the international stage, and certainly didn’t offer much to suggest he should be kept faith with for the second group game.
Along with the ineffective Alex Iwobi, perhaps, played out of position by Technical Adviser Gernot Rohr. I felt Iwobi is the only close-to creative player in the Super Eagles squad, he should be deployed behind the Strikers.
Meanwhile, Victor Moses on his own part failed to make an impact, he was rising and falling on the Night, and offered very little threat or penetration for much of the match.
But the Eagles looked somewhat more impressive once Kelechi Iheanacho had entered as a substitute, with more movement and energy on the show, and the Super Eagles should perhaps consider starting him next time out.
What do you think?
Should Gernot Rohr start Simy Nwankwo, Kelechi Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa against Iceland?
