Former Super Eagles attacker, Victor Agali, has advised coach Gernor Rohr to concentrate on the solid partnership of China based Odion Ighalo and Anthony Nwaekaeme, as the Super Eagles commence training ahead of the double header world cup qualifying match against Cameroon.
Agali noted that the partnership between Odion Ighalo and Anthony Nwakaeme will be key for the Eagles, adding that the team would require the presence of a physical man upfront against a very physical Cameroonian side, which according to him, Nwakaeme fits in perfectly.
The former Shalke and OGC Nice striker said: “The Super Eagles suffered against South Africa because it lacked an experienced and physical striker upfront, and the combination of Ighalo, who has the experience and Nwakaeme’s physical presence will help them to victory.
“He might not have played for Nigeria before, but this is a man that has played against some of the biggest players and teams in Europe like in the Europa League and Champions League qualifiers. I strongly believe he has what it takes to deliver for the Eagles”.
He finally posited that Nigeria’s technical bench must be very wary of FC Porto striker, Vincent Abubakar who hit a hat-trick for his club last weekend.
“He is a very fantastic striker, very physical and technical. Our coaches must work on the defenders not to be clumsy with the striker as he may cause some damage.”
