Thus, instead of touting a perspective that leans on rebuilding, he has to demonstrate that his team is now beyond that or that it, at least, is transitioning to the consolidation phase in building a strong Nigerian team capable of becoming African champion again. Consolidation does not mean absence of new players but it does require a team playing with experience, confidence and a sense of urgency. That can be observed in two key areas: personnel and team strategy.

Comparing the use of the two defensive formations present a problem because it is clear that the three-man defense has been used in much tougher games with four out of five against higher ranked opponents! Yet, its outcomes have largely been better than outcomes using a four-man defense. It presents the flexibility of having five players defend deeply and two advanced forwards when with the ball.

Great write-up and well thought out perspectives as usual.

I truly admire the way you put this,

However, the suggestion that Nigeria should change its team based on the performance of Nigerian players in Europe is a recipe for disaster. That simply assumes an unending phase of team rebuilding based on the concept of a pick up game. Historically, performance at a club in Europe does not assure similar performance at the national team level because of several factors that include different tactics, variation in player confidence, relationship with others in a different team, and much more. Players are not robots, they are subject to human vagaries.

I would reserve my other comments for later, as you have just summed thing up perfectly for now.
Cheers!!!

The comparison of defensive formations backed by actual stats is thought provoking. Great piece as usual.

Chuka or whatever your name is, please go and sit down :oops: . This is blatant double standard with regards to the debuting of new players. This wasn’t an issue with you when local coaches were in charge right? You even supported Oliseh with statistics in the past :winking: .
