CAR Vs Nigeria: 3 Players That Should Be Benched Against The CAR In The Return Leg

Two days from now, the Super Eagles will hope to avenge the 1-0 defeat they suffered against the Central African Republic in the Qatar 2022 World Cup Qualifying campaign. 

There are some lapses that we saw in the first leg that should be avoided if the Super Eagles are to come out victorious on Sunday. 

However, one aspect that the Technical Adviser Gernot Rohr needs to work on is the team's formation. 

In this post, we would looking at three players that should start from the bench due to their performance in the last encounter. 

Joe Aribo

Joe Aribo is one player whose impact was not felt in the last game. He was practically invisible. If Gernot Rohr is serious about winning the next game, then he should consider starting Aribo from the bench. 

Leon Balogun

Balogun partnership with William Ekong appears to be failing. They couldn't prevent the Central African Republic strikers from having their ways. Leon should be dropped from the starting lineup of Gernot Rohr desires to see a different result on Sunday. 

Simon Moses 

Simon Moses has proven to perform better when he starts from the bench. The coach should consider this option if he want Nigeria to win the second leg. 

The return leg of the game would be held in Yaounde, Cameroon on Sunday 9th October 2021
