Head coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has refused to rule out the possibility of Victor Moses playing as a wing back when Nigeria take on Algeria on Saturday in the World Cup 2018 qualifiers.

Rohr was asked upon arrival in Uyo if there is a possibility of Moses playing in the same role he has excelled this season at Chelsea under manager Antonio Conte.

” Too early to talk about tactics and formation but we have a way we hope to play, and regarding Moses he will play in a position that is best for the team, for him and for the entire nation as a whole” He said.

However from our checks at the team training session, the 25 year old has been played as a winger from the right and once operated from the left, with another showing just behind the striker.

Today’s close door session of the Eagles in Uyo could decide the likely formation the team will play against Algeria, although they are insinuations that Rohr could stick to his preferred 4-3-3 formation.
