Rohr usually plays with Ndidi and Etebo sitting in front of the back four, and Alex Iwobi in the attacking position.
Rohr could call on Frank Onyeka of Brentford City and Malmö FF midfielder Innocent Bonke to replace the Ndidi and Etebo.
With limited midfielders available for selection, Onyeka and Bonke remain the best option for Gernot Rohr.

The two boys are also good, and they also shared many similarities with Etebo and Ndidi, but the only problem is they haven't played together before, so they might find it difficult to understand to flow on the pitch.

Innocent Bonke paired Kingsley Michael against Cape Verde last month , and they did well together, unfortunately , they won't continue their partnership, because Rohr didn't invite Kingsley for the game.

Meanwhile, the ideal replacement for Iwobi, could be Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo. The Rangers midfielder is a natural midfielder and has played the position countless times for the Eagles.
Leicester Kelechi Iheanacho is another option for the number 10 position, but his lack of adequate playing time with Leicester City could be a problem.
