Super Eagles 4-2-3-1 Lineup Suggestion For Sierra Leone

By Olamide Oyetunji - It is a lovely Wednesday afternoon and a wonderful time for Nigerian football fans as they will be looking forward to watching the Super Eagles playing in the country for the first time in one year.

Super Eagles will entertain the visiting Leone stars of Sierra Leone inside the refurbished Samuel Ogbuemudia stadium in Benin City on Friday.

The Coach of the Super Eagles team won't have a lot of time to train the players as many of them are still yet to make their entry into the country.

However, the Franco-German could be left with no other tactical option than to go with familiar faces with his famous 4-2-3-1 formation.

Maduka Okoye appears to have stolen the gloves in the friendly encounters with Algeria and Tunisia in Austria and has also earned his first professional clean sheet at club level over the weekend.

Ola Aina was on song for Fulham last week as a right back, William Troost-Ekong could tell the story with Watford while Leon Balogun was rock solid in the last two friendlies.

Porto left back Zaidu Sanusi has won the hearts of Nigerians in his debut appearances with some familiar faces expected to return to the midfield.

It will be a reunion for the trio of Oghenekaro Etebo, Alexander Iwobi and Joe Aribo at the heart of the team and hopefully, Aribo will replicate his club with the national team.


With the notable absence of Samuel Kalu and Moses Simon, Ahmed Musa will captain the team from the left wing while Villarreal starlet Samuel Chukwueze will provide pace from the right.

Napoli most expensive signing Victor Osimhen will be gunning to add to his three goals in the qualifiers by leading the line and should be in high spirit after scoring his second Italian Serie A goal against Bologna on Sunday.

Can Super Eagles beat Sierra Leone with this Lineup?
