How Super Eagles Can Fly Over Sierra Leone With 3-5-2 Formation

By Olamide Oyetunji - This is not the time to duel in negativity but it is still very painful for Nigeria to throw away a 4-0 lead to draw 4-4 against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone inside the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium on Friday.

Nigeria Football Federation President, Amaju Melvin Pinnick has challenged the Nigerians to display their superiority in the return leg by beating Sierra Leone by four unreplied goals.

We knew it won't be easy but it is possible as the display of the Super Eagles in the first 30 minutes of the game showed how prolific the Nigeria attack can be.

Gernot Rohr can build a defensive wall by playing his secondary 3-5-2 formation which may sadly not involve Victor Osimhen.

Maduka Okoye should continue in goal while Zaidu Sanusi should continue his surge from the left side as the mobile Tyronne Ebuehi should feature on the left.

Leon Balogun, William Troost-Ekong and Kevin Akpoguma can form formidable combinations from the back while Oghenekaro Etebo, Joe Aribo and Alex Iwobi will be rotating at the middle of the park.

Captain Ahmed Musa must show leadership by example from the forward line while Kelechi Iheanacho will be assisting him.
