Why? He is already on the plane to AFCON 2019 in Cairo. Don't you think so?

Ohenhen1,

I am asking myself the same question. I am truly surprised. He is a certainty for Egypt and so why is he starting here.The only thing that I can think, if the story is accurate, is thatRohr is not convinced about his playmaking for Nigeria and wants to give him more match time to strengthen that aspect for SE.

Yeap, I agree, and the lineup validates it. I only wish he develops a cold thats only curable by staying away from Afcon 2019

I'm not sure we've ever had Mikel, Iwobi, Chukwueze and Kalu on the same pitch at the same time before.
Rohr probably wants to see how a strike force that thrives on quality feed at club level will function with the same quality feed from Iwobi and Mikel.

That's one explanation.
I expect Osimhen to come in later in the game.

For me, good line up.

And so? Does it matter? Hasn't he been part of the team from inception? The team needs every opportunity to blend and tryout new tactics and not just new players.

I suspect coach has already made his mind up about his team. This is a lineup I can leave with, so long as Etebo, does most of the heave defensive lifting.

So you know better than the coach, abi? Btw exactly what does he need rest from? From a grueling season with Arsenal where he played majority of the games or rest from the Europa final where he played all 90 minutes abi? Sometimes una no dey think this thing through very well...and that quite frankly is a shame, a damn shame if you ask me smh

That would be unfair to the rest of the team, if waltz into the AFCON lineup without going through the "trials" I am okay with this line-up, with the exception of Ndidi, this line cannot beat anyone, Brazil, Argentina Included. :biggrin:

Firstly, this is a speculative list.

Secondly, if its correct, ROhr wants to get this team blending and hot from start. Imagine wining Zimbabwe, the first game of the AFCON series, with 3-0 or 4-0. It would be a massive boost to the team.

I believe Iwobi would be restedin the 2nd half tho.

My own question is, Why is Ndidi starting? Why Mikel? If Mikel would be his DM, wouldnt Ndidi push up to the CM midfield and take over Etebo's role? Or does Rohr prefer Etebo there? Are we seeing the iminent benching of Ndidi?

Like I said, the line up is giving me goosebumps, I am completely Ok with Ndidi coming second half to replace Mikel or even Etebo. Etebo is an engine, and frankly would be more beneficial defensively. SE is back, this will not be a kick and rush team o. The ball would be played on the surface of the green grass (albeit bumpy)
