AFCON 2022: Drop Your Advice For The Super Eagle’s Squad

3

1. With the influence of VAR, our defence should be less physical and more tactical. That was BurkinaFaso’s bane against Cameroon. 2. For same reasons, our forwards should be trained to hold possession around in the opponent’s box. A 4-3-3 will be the perfect formation in this era of VAR. the 3 forwards must be capable of subtle possession and clinical finish. 3. Our 9 should be capable of controlling area balls while maintaining his stand. Someone like Didier Drogba; the defenders know too well not to be aggressive for the fear of being penalized. This will give the other 2 forwards space to play around the opponent’s box. 4. This is a physical game, and Nigeria is at disadvantage in this area comparing them with other physically advantaged countries like Cameron, Senegal et al. What does this mean? A tip-tap style of football will only earn us free kicks which might not earn us anything tangible unless we have Clinical Free-kick takers like Ronaldo, Beckham or Kaka. We all know we do not have one. Hence area football will come in handy with forwards who can control ball as discussed in the previous point. 5. All the squad must be trained in Penalty Kick taking as the knockout stage will soon start. Also, we need to identify a player very good with penalties as Jorginho is to Chelsea. Add yours.
