Based On Training: Victor Moses, Etebo In, Ideye & Moses Simon Out Of Starting Line Up Against Algeria

Some changes will most likely be made to the Super Eagles starting line up for the clash against Algeria on the 12th of November, as coach Gernot Rohr has maintained a team that looked likely to start in the World Cup 2018 qualifiers.

From our checks at the team training session, the Franco-German manager of the team has stuck with an attack formation that could see Moses Simon and Brown Ideye dropped, from the team that defeated Zambia 2-1 in Ndola.

The duo appeared to have lost their starting spot in the team to Victor Moses and Oghenekaro Etebo who is staging a return to the team after missing out on the last two games, no thanks to fitness and club commitments.

Etebo has been very lively in training playing just ahead of Mikel and behind Iheanacho as the main striker, while Moses has been churning out impressive performances from the right wing.

However today’s close door session in Uyo could give a lot of information on the fate of the duo retaining their spot in the team, but from the training in Abuja, it doesn’t seem so.
