Nigeria v Libya: The Right Approach to the Double Header

It is match day as the Super Eagles of Nigeria will be squaring up against the Mediterranean Knights of Libya.
Here are the few things Coach Gernot Rohr must do to ensure a favourable double-header.

Squad Utilization: The tactician must ensure that he utilities his young squad to the optimum.

Strategy must be to attack going by the weapons in his armory.

Little Loyalty: It must be said that the Franco-German is a bit conservative and doesn't like to change his line-up.

Nigeria will miss a third consecutive Africa Cup of Nations if the Coach remains too loyal to familiar faces in the starting eleven.
Squad Rotation: The team will play for 180minutes within the space of 4days ; we must apply wisdom in order to get maximum points or at least 4points.

Libya will host Nigeria in Tunisia(a neutral ground) and victory is possible.

Super Eagles destroyed the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon by 4-0 in Uyo last year and were forced to a 1-1 draw some days later due to fatigue and lack of rotation.
The team simply stopped playing after 45minutes and the African Champions capitalized to tie the game after some spell of pressure.

More of new and fresh players could have the floor while more of the veterans should be paraded in Tunisia. Failure to get 4points will lead to a gang up from South Africa and Libya to stop the Eagles from flying to Cameroon.
