The Super Eagles of Nigeria suffered a late minute defeat to the Wild Beasts of the Central African Republic in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, and according to reports by the Nigerian coach, the absence of Ndidi and Iwobi was enough to influence the defeat.
The German tactician has stated that the absence of the Leicester City player and Everton player had impacted Nigeria's game against the Central African Republic, in the Thursday 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying match.
Despite dominating the ball without the help of the two English-based stars, the German tactician still saw the urgent need for Alex Iwobi and Wilfred Ndidi in the midfield area of the Super Eagles of Nigeria as they lacked precision in attack and creativity in the midfield area.
Pondering over the defeat conceded to the visiting nation, the Super Eagles of Nigeria need not take the defeat to heart as they are top of the group with 6 points and for the loss created by the absence of the two English-based players, the team need to learn how to start coping without the presence of their star players.
