Very attacking lineup..Eguavoen is a brave coach. Rhor will never try that. Go Super Eagles!!

Always puzzled why we never take advantage of Chukwueze’s talent!

Wow.
That is attacking.
Iwobi has lost his place.
Would be interesting to see if this operates as more of a 4–1-4-1 to get Aribo further up the field.
But it’s adventurous and creates all sorts of problems for the Egyptian back line.

Awaziem must be wondering what he’s gotta to to earn a place in the middle of a back four

You mean while he was injured? Because he was a key part of our attack before his injury.

To Simon to form tag team partner with Sanusi for Salah

Eguoaven should play Awaziem in this game oh... Perhaps a starting position of Right back..
Aina & Chukwueze on a single flank is suicide.. Egypt would play strong defence, this game could be a cagey one..

I don’t trust Omeruo. He makes at least one crucial mistake per game.

We have 2 error prone CDs starting and I believe the Egyptians will target them.
This same pair played at AFCON 2019 and didn't convince. I hope Eguavoen knows what he's doing.
I am happy

At least they can run. Have you seen the Egyptian centre halves? I’ll take ours over there’s any day, calamities and all.

Hopefully someone can cover for him if that happens, but hopefully he plays within himself and intelligently with few errors.

Iheanacho will need to do a lot of work on both sides of the ball, I hope he's ready!

Rhor never started him consistently, even before injury. He should be a regular starter.

This would have been Rohr's starting 11 except maybe Kelechi instead of Awoniyi and Iwobi or Onyeka for Kelechi in the midfield. I think Kelechi is being asked to play in the wrong position, which effectively is the number 10 role. But lets see how it will go.

And we have quickly forgotten the games he did not play well and even fans were calling for him to be substituted? Chukwueze blows hot and cold, but he is still a good player who should improve with age if he listens to his coaches.

Aside from Awaziem for Omeruo this was my lineup form the get go. I doubled up Sanusi and Simon to checkmate Salah on the left while unleashing Aina and Chuks on them on the right. This game is going to be a battle of the wings and whichever team blinks first will lose. Simon is going to be busy all game and I hope he has the stamina to play at least 75 mins.
I also see Iheanacho and Awoniyi back to their U17 combo days. Hopefully, the magic is still there.
A Person convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.
