Super Eagles forwards Moses Simon and Samuel Kalu both play from the wings, and the two were teammates at least for Last season at Belgian Jupiler Side, KAA Gent.
So, who should start for the Super Eagles on Saturday? remember Samuel KALU’s performance against Seychelles in Victoria last month?
Meanwhile, all through the qualifying campaign for the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup, Moses held onto his role in the left wing of the Eagles attack with Coach Gernot Rohr opting for the 4-3-3 formation.
The 4-3-3 worked with Moses Simon on the flanks, as the results attested. The former Gent man was restrained in his attacking movements, but was disciplined enough to fulfill his tactical duties.
He was providing a counterweight to Victor Moses’ roaming from the left, allowing Shehu Abdullahi – a converted midfielder – to tuck inside rather than bomb forward, and also protecting the right full-back zone in defensive transitions.
Losing Moses to injury just before the FIFA World Cup necessitated a switch to a 3-5-2, but Rohr did not seem convinced by that shape, and stubbornly tried to plug Alex Iwobi, a totally different sort of player, into the role for the opening group hame against Croatia.
Right now, into the new season with two different clubs, As Simon nursed back to full fitness at Levante in the Spanish La Liga, Samuel Kalu seemed to be rising out of the blue in the French Ligue 1 with Bordeaux.
