Kelechi Iheanacho is the major casualty in the starting line up of the Super Eagles for today’s World Cup 2018 Qualifiers tie against Cameroon in Uyo, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.
Leaks gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com from their final training session can confirm coach Gernot Rohr has settled for a front three of Moses Simon, Odion Ighalo and Victor Moses.
The trio were the attackers the manager spent time with in yesterday’s close door session with emphasis on exploiting the apparent lack of pace in the defence of Cameroon.
Oghenekaro Etebo was also not in the squad that did tactical drills with the coach as vice captain Ogenyi Onazi alongside captain John Obi Mikel are expected to be in the midfield with Wilfred Ndidi.
Here is how they lined up in yesterday’s close door session, which was their final tune up for today’s clash against Cameroon.
