1 - They should switch to the 4:3:3 formation: The players struggled to perform well in their match against Liberia yesterday and that was because the players are not very familiar with the 3:5:2 formation that was used by the coach. Most of the players did not play in their usual positions and it affected the match.

The formation itself was nice t effective for the team as the team was not creative and the defense line was very shaky. The had to depend on two penalties to defeat a team like Liberia, they could struggle against Cape Verde next week if they do not use the 4:3:3 formation that they always use.

2 - Paul Onuachu should replace Kelechi Iheanacho: The Leicester city striker could not perform well in his last game for the super eagles, so he should be replaced by Paul Onuachu who is a very prolific striker. He is always more threatening to the defense of the opposing team and he can help to score more goals.

Paul Onuachu is better with aerial duels than Kelechi Iheanacho, he can score many headers and his height is always giving him an edge over the opposing defenders.

3 - Joe Aribo should switch to the attacking midfield position: Joe Aribo is always playing in the attacking midfield position in his club, but he has been playing in a more defensive area for the super eagles and that has affected his performance for the team.

He could perform at optimum level if he is used in the attacking midfield position with Alex Iwobi, he has a lot of creativity and he can also score many goals for the team.
