Since the Super Eagles of Nigeria resumed training for their AFCON 2017 qualifiers tie against Tanzania, the one attacker that has remained consistent in all of their session is Olympiakos of Greece forward Brown Ideye.
The former West Brom forward has won the coaches over with his strong showings in tactical drills and positional awareness, and in the test game against Akwa United he was simply un-playable.
Aside the fact that he scored in the game against Akwa United and in yesterday’s practice session, the 28 year old appears fitter than the rest of the strikers in camp.
Yesterday during the drills on goal scoring, he scored with almost all his efforts with his head and legs and in the practice game, he used his body very well to trouble the defenders he was up against, effectively bringing his teammates into play.
It appears he will lead the line against Tanzania on Saturday due to his consistency in training, as Gernot Rohr starts his reign in Uyo with eyes on next month World Cup 2018 qualifiers against Zambia.
