    Nigeria vs Argentina

    Super eagles should play a certain 3-5-2/3-4-3 formation 

    The players 
    Uzoho
    Balogun – Ekong – Omeruo
    Ebuehi – Mikel – Etobo – Ndidi – Moses 
    Kelechi – Iwobi 

    Subs (attack options) if we need goals as the game progresses (3-4-3)/(3-3-4) formation 
    – Musa for Moses 
    – Simy for Kelechi
    – Ogu for Mikel

    Subs (defence options) if we are up by a goal as the game progresses (4-5-1)/(3-5-1-1) formation 
    – Musa for Ighalo
    – Ogu for Kelechi
    – Joel / Onazi for Moses

    Hints: 
    – Our Players MUST be wary NOT to fall for various antics from factors which I don’t want to mention in order not to provoke the football powers.
    – We have played our last two matches and have penalties awarded against us. So I believe our players must be calculative, exhibits sheer commitment, focus and work as a team when defending and attacking. There should never be a single seconds of lack in concentration!!!
    We MUST NOT pack the bus. Just play the normal free flowing game (starved them of the ball and be ready to take risks and half a chance when an oppourtity presents itself).

    Coach Gohr MUST make timely substitutions and players MUST be properly gingered up before the match 
    The Eagles MUST play from the blast of the whistle !!!!!

    We all know say FIFA no go like make Messi just waka like that so them go play politics small, but with God, we will come out tops.   

    All Super Eagles need is don’t panic…CONCENTRATION, FOCUS, DETERMINATION, SHEER TEAM-PLAY will play a key role to getting a good result.

    Argentina ARE BEATABLE !!!
    Croatia would not have beaten us. We all know that. But they humbled, humiliated and trashed Argentina
    Iceland drew with Messi and his colleagues and that same Iceland we beat comfortably!
    I know it is not the way matches goes but check am na……ARGENTINA IS BEATABLE !!!

    God no dey sleep !!!
    Soar Super Eagles !!!!!!!!!

      I agree with your formations suggestion, but the analysis: Onazi/Joel Obi for Moses? That a dumb ass request!

    Dis is futball anytin can apen.
    Woteva apen i stand wiy my super eagled ..
    Let d team play d game wit fighting spirit.. Argen sure are cornered dey will sure giv us tough time …

    I dnt wish for bryan idowu to play dis game..
    Am very sure joel obi will tak d chancr and perform well..
    Rohr shld play ebuehi dere bcos our opportunent knws datd not his position dey explore him wella…

    And one more tin pls rohr dont use ighalo again in dis worldcup he can play in nations cup but he is damn too sluggish for dis tournament ,,, nwakwo can be a gud sub …

    Rohr pls knw wen to defence nd wen to attack if nigeria can withstand d attack till 60+ mins den change ur plan and try anf defence …..

    My opinion

  • Four world cup matches were lost to Argentina with all the winning goal coming through set pieces. From cannigia,bastituta,Heinze to Rojo.

    My verdit avoid unnecessary tackles and corner kicks. Remember this statistics and remember you heard and read it first from here before it happens but am sure my boys will shock messi.
