Nigeria suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of the Czech Republic on Wednesday in Austria in their final friendly ahead of the World Cup.
Eagleseye Footy highlights five things we learned in Super Eagles.
1.Wilfred Is Important To The National Team
The Super Eagles midfield looked more comfortable with anchorman Wilfred Ndidi back in the side.
2. Uzoho Can Do A Decent Job At The World Cup
Uzoho made some quite outstanding reflex saves with his hands and feet and the consistent game spell in the warm up matches has surely done him a world of good.
3. There Still Problem In Defensive
The Super Eagles defensive promblem was evident especially in the first half. They couldn’t properly clear their lines for the Czech’s fifth corner kick, leaving Chelsea player, Tomas Kalas to fire home from inside the box after Uzoho saved Tomas Soucek’s header.
4. Rohr’s Second Half Game Plan
Gernot Rohr is trying several things. In the friendly against England on Saturday, Rohr changed his tactics in the second half which confounded his England counterpart Gareth Southgate. Rohr switched from his more preferred 4-3-3 formation to a 3-5-2 system which saw John Ogu forming a back three with the duo of Leon Balogun and William Troost Ekong and Brian Idowu pushing forward to support the forward players (instructively Iwobi is naturally a midfielder but has been deployed on the flank from the start).
5. Ebuehi Outshines Shehu
Abdullahi Shehu was poor today.
