Former Super Eagles boss Sunday Oliseh expects teams to take more risks and attack more as the Qatar 2022 World Cup progresses.
The tournament has produced more goalless and 1-0 win more than the 2018 edition in Russia at this stage.
Oliseh who is member of FIFA technical study group believes teams are being careful this time, but expect them to be more adventurous as the tournament goes on.
“As the tournament progresses we will see teams become a bit braver,” Oliseh predicted.
“This is a very different World Cup in that players get to sleep in the same bed every night and each team has its own base. There is no traveling from venue to a different venue.
“It’s like they are all playing at home. They are not facing the fatigue that comes with constant travelling around and I don’t see the players getting tired any time soon,” he said.
Qatar 2022 has recorded four goalless games in the opening 16 matches – an unprecedented 25 per cent return in the first round of group games.
