Super Eagles Probable Starting Eleven and Roles vs Poland

Uzoho

Shehu-Ekong-Balogun-Idowu

Onazi(c)-Ndidi

Iwobi-Iheanacho-Moses

Ighalo
●The team will flaunt the typical 4-2-3-1 formation with some familiar faces leading the line.

●Idowu having his first start on the left side behind a stamina freak in Victor Moses.

Idowu's offensive appetite isn't in question but his defensive prowess will be tested as the Polish right flank is perceived to be very strong.

●Balogun will be up against the hottest poacher(Robert Lewandowski) in the German Bundesliga.

It must be said that Leon has been performing below par in recent national team appearances.

●Onazi saddled with the responsibility of leading the team yet again in the absence of John Obi Mikel, Eddy let down the team in the 0-2 embarrassing defeat against Bafana Bafana in Uyo.

The problem between Onazi and Ndidi is division of labour.

Onazi will prefer to do the distribution leaving 'Onyinye' with the dirty work.

Both must stay disciplined hence Ndidi should be the destroyer while Onazi as a better passer should be the distributor before the introduction of Joel Obi and John Ogu.

●Victor Moses is the only line hugging winger in the first eleven.
The burden of creativity is upon the trio of Alexander Iwobi, Kelechi Iheanacho and Victor Moses with the Arsenal youngster experienced in such role at club level but the Shehu Abdullahi factor could inspire the spark of one touch football for Iwobi and Iheanacho who will both be Inter-switching roles as Attacking Midfielder and Right Winger.

Recall that all the four goals IWOBI scored for Nigeria came from cutbacks or short crosses from the right side and a good example of that was Shehu Abdullahi's assist against Zambia.

Iheanacho ball possessive skill will be put to test.

●Ighalo is the only out to out striker in camp and the formation could switch to 4-4-2 if Iheanacho provide a helping hand.
●Enjoy Uzoho, He's our tallest stopper!

Prediction: Poland 2-3 Nigeria
Man of the match: Kelechi Iheanacho
