The Super Eagles stepped up their preparation for their second game in the World Cup 2018 qualifiers, which will take place this weekend against Algeria with coach Gernot Rohr trying out various formations in attack.

Spoilt for choice in attack, the return of Brown Ideye to training added more spice to the team’s options in attack but with the coach still looking for the right pairings, he tried out so many options in training which Owngoalnigeria.com witnessed.

The session started with the trio of Victor Moses, Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho leading the line in a three man attack while Oghenekaro Etebo played just behind the main striker Iheanacho.

For the other team Moses Simon, Odion Ighalo and Ideye started upfront. It gave us a little hint that the duo of Simon and Ideye who started the game against Zambia could be dropped for Etebo and Moses.

Although Simon dazzled during yesterday’s session, the abilities of Moses in defending could give him an edge above the Gent man when Rohr names his team for the tie against Algeria on Saturday.
