Former Super Eagles coach Samson Siasia says the Super Eagles of Nigeria will play best if the coach of the team Gernot Rohr plays Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi in the number 10 role.
Presently captain of the Super Eagles John Obi Mikel plays as the playmaker of the team while Iwobi plays from the left in Rohr’s 4-3-3 formation, but Siasia wants Rohr to switch to 4-4-2 and play Iwobi as the playmaker of the team.
” Talking about a 4-4-2 system, Rohr should involve Watford wing attacker Isaac Success playing from the left wing, Chelsea Victor Moses from the right wing while Iheanacho should play as the top striker of the team. This would be very potent attack line for the Eagles and would surely deliver against any team”, Siasia said.
” Playing Iwobi as Eagles playmaker alongside Ndidi with Success and Moses ahead of him will bring the best out of him. Alex can create lots of goals with his good vision and passes and he can score goals too. The only thing he is working on for now is his defensive ability which I believe other players in Eagles can help to cover up.
“Like I said Alex will excel as a play maker for the Super Eagles but he can still operate from both sides of the wing attack and forward too”, he added.
