Good one Dyt, but you need to learn work from Robosky02. In the event of a big match like this, you have to do some basic analysis.

That is, present the 23-man squad of both Nigeria and Iceland, their head to head (H-2-H), their big players, both teams' chance of winning, and more.

Nevertheless, to make the thread a good one to follow, you would have to put down the details of the match Venue, time, stadium and capacity e.t.c and a lot of pictures.

With is, more people would have interest in following the thread keenly and religiously. I hope you'd do some little research about the above-mentioned tips, then modify your post.

Based on my observations, I believe A 3-5-2 would be the most compact, most balanced, highly effective system based on our strength...the midfield (We have way too many midfielders in the team). This formation would emphasize our structural, and positional integrity, due to the fact that players are never far off from each others thus ensuring we retain possession and position, whilst pressing very hard with a semi-high-line defense. If you look at it you can easily see the triangular clusters

Triangle 1 : Iwobi-Ighalo-Mikel

Triangle 2 : Mikel-Etebo-Ndidi

Triangle 3 : Ighalo-Mikel-Tyronne

Triangle 4 : Iwobi- Moses - Etebo

Triangle 5 : Moses - Etebo- Omeruo

Triangle 6 : Etebo-Omeruo-Balogun

Triangle 7 : Ndidi-Tyronne-Ekong

Triangle 8 Ndidi-Balogun-Ekong

E.T.C

We have Moses and Tyronne on the wings, two strong fast players who aren't strangers to defensive or offensive responsibilities. I trust this formation and hope this is what the coaches put out.

Well said bro. The most annoying part is supplying of aerial balls upfront with little or no attempt from Ighalo. Whatever happens to playing through the flanks, I dunno. They should stop this high ball mentality against the Iceland team otherwise what happened in the past will repeat itself. Its not paying at all. They played same thing against England and their last match before the world cup proper. Mikel is guilty of this high ball mentality even when opponents are taller than our lone striker Ighalo.
Arsenalholic:
Two things that are very glaring in this current Eagles set up:

1. Inability to defend set pieces properly (na this problem make me tire for Arsenal under Arsene. W). Against England, Serbia, & Czech we conceded from set plays or crosses into the box. So why the f*ck are they not working on this?

With tall players in that defense like Balogun and Troost, we should be imposing at set plays, but the opposite is the case. It frustrates the hell outta moi.

Iceland are a mean bunch when it comes to crosses and set pieces. As a matter of fact, it's their ace move. That spells a lot of trouble for the Eagles. Unless we limit their opportunities to fling crosses and even long throws into the box.

2. We are not creating many chances: Another big problem that was glaring even during the friendlies. Who is our most creative player? Is it Mikel, Moses or Iwobi?

We can't even say.

Each team possesses a clear-cut creator-in-chief. But not Nigeria.

Moses is looking to pick up that role but his crosses are too wayward and Ighalo isn't even imposing in the air so no point sending those crosses in.

Iwobi would have been the best choice because he has immense control in tight spaces, has pace, can beat a man comfortably and more importantly can pick a key pass.

But the problem is that he can't do all that playing from the wings. I watched him play for Arsenal against Crystal Palace on January 1st 2017. He played in that '10' role in the absence of Mr. Ozil. And boy was he good!

We saw against England that the dude is more comfortable dictating play from the midfield.

However, Rorh won't let him take that role for Nigeria because of a certain Mikel Obi. These days Mikel doesn't create anything. So why not send him to the base of midfield alongside Ndidi?

Actually, I wouldn't drop Etebo for him. I'd prefer a midfield trio of Iwobi, Etebo and Ndidi (this midfield trio has vritually everything you need). Then up front I'll have Moses, Ighalo and Iheanacho (on the right) as my forward line.

I don't see Grenot Rorh having the balls to make these calls, though. And so I see us struggling badly against Iceland.

However, I still hope they find a way to win because it's what we all want. #SoarSuperEagles.

Mikel is not an attacking Midfielder. Etebo should take that position, because he's more energetic and fast and always love to advance with the ball. Let Mikel come back to 4, his sluggishness and tendency to make backward passes won't be of much disadvantage there.
