1. Victor Moses Will Be Key
He has shown his class in all their training sessions, his abilities on the ball is extraordinary, and that’s keeping it mild. So far he looks the real threat in the attack of the Super Eagles ahead of tomorrow’s game.
2. Mikel Obi’s Class Is Permanent
The captain of the Super Eagles of Nigeria John Obi Mikel appears not to have lost the quality that kept him at Chelsea for ten and half seasons as he has turned out impressive performances since the start of training.
Mikel’s link up play with Ndidi in the middle was one of the highlight of yesterday’s close door session as the team perfected their strategy ahead of tomorrow’s clash.
3. Ola Aina Is More At Home As Right Back Than Left Back
The latest in the line of players who have represented other nations at youth level but opt for Nigeria at senior level. Although his debut is still in doubt as he is yet to be cleared by FIFA, he has so far distinguished himself in training.
However he appears more comfortable playing as a right back than left back during the sessions witnessed by owngoalnigeria.com. Although he didn’t do badly as a left back, it’s clear from his performance that right back is where he can be truly efficient.
