As the Super Eagles of Nigeria is preparing to take on the Central African Republic in a FIFA World Cup qualifier double-header, coach Gernot Rohr will be tasked with the problem of how to reset his team's tactics to function well without the services of four key Super Eagles of Nigeria player's. The Super Eagles plan ahead of the must-win FIFA World Cup qualifier double-header clash with the Central Republic has been dealt a heavy blow with the news of the injuries of players like Wilfred Ndidi, Alex Iwobi, Oghenekaro Etebo, and Terrem Moffi which has ruled them out of the home and away encounter with the Central African Republic.
Iwobi and Ndidi
How will Rohr React?
In response to the injury of the 4 key players Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has invited Frank Onyeka, Innocent Bonke, Chidera Ejuke, and Taiwo Awoniyi as replacements for the injured Alex Iwobi, Terrem Moffi, Wilfred Ndidi, and Oghenekaro Etebo. The in-form Taiwo Awoniyi has been in great scoring form for Union Berlin and he is getting his first Super Eagles invitation after joining Union Berlin on a permanent move from Liverpool.
Nigerians will be expecting nothing less than a victory against the Central African Republic, but the Les Fauves of The Central African Republic will be looking to capitalize on the lapses the Super Eagles may face in midfield. Super Eagles of Nigeria coach, Gernot Rohr will be banking on Frank Onyeka to recreate his brilliant form in defensive midfield for Brentford in the midfield of the Super Eagles of Nigeria, he will also be looking to tweak the team's formation to accommodate both Taiwo Awoniyi and Victor Osihmen, Awoniyi will probably fit in as a supporting striker in a 4-4-2 attacking formation for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
If all goes well Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr should qualify Nigeria for the second round of qualifiers with two games to spare. Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has arrived in Lagos, Nigeria in preparation for his player's arrival at the Eko Hotel camp which was opened for players' arrival on Sunday the 3rd of October 2021.
