Ikpeba: Eagles Lack Midfield Leader

By Johnny Edward:

Nigeria Football Federation technical committee member, Victor Ikpeba, believes the new-look Super Eagles team need a leader in midfield.

The Eagles struggled to find their rhythm against Tanzania in Dar Es Salaam with the trio of Obiora Nwankwo, Izunna Ugochukwu and Lukman Haruna in midfield, and were not much better against Niger.

Former Nigeria forward Ikpeba urged the technical crew to recall some tested players to beef up the squad for subsequent games.

“No doubt I was not impressed that the Eagles failed to perform but I still think if the Eagles play to Oliseh’s philosophy they can rise again.

“Oliseh’s midfield still needs a leader and he alone will find that missing piece that can make his team play swift and compact football,” Ikpeba said on SuperSport TV.

On the win against Niger in Port Harcourt, Ikpeba added: “The Eagles were not that convincing but the win will help their confidence.

“There is still lot of work to do and I hope they maintain the tempo.”
