If only the chickens still have wings to fly, I'D EXPECT a nice touchdown after one hell of a flight but I see the sierra leonians clipping off the remaining hairs of the Eagles.

The Sherrie Lonean team left with a gun shot wound in the arms and I am scared for the Super Eagles especially with the German coach in charge

While the players’ professionalism and attitude must be questioned, Rohr must also take a considerable portion of the blame.

Time and again his substitutions have proved ineffective and have too regularly appeared to cost Nigeria momentum and control in a match, rather than helping the Eagles consolidate their authority and continue to take the game to opposition.

It was as clear as day, as Friday’s match swung in the Leone Stars’ favour, that Nigeria’s midfield was labouring, yet Rohr watched on helplessly, making tweaks and cosmetic realignments, rather than fixing the gaping hole in the hear of the team.

Certainly, it can be hard to find too much logic in some of Rohr’s substitutions, and sometimes, his changes appear to be made just for the sake of it.
Why, for example, remove the influential Samuel Chukwueze, whose movement and running gave the Leone Stars something to be worried about behind their defence?

Why remove Leon Balogun for Semi Ajayi? Why introduce strikers Paul Onuachu and Kelechi Iheanacho when the midfield requires bolstering?
The substitutions themselves are problematic, as are the timings of the changes…Rohr dithers, watching on as Rome burns, when a proactive approach is required.

Then, the broader squad selection must also be questioned.

In the past, we’ve seen Nigeria setting themselves up to fail, rather than succeed, and it feels as though the same is happening again with Rohr.

Many eyebrows were raised when the German coach named four midfielders—one of whom was right-back Tyronne Ebuehi—in his squad for the double-header against the Leone Stars.

It was hard to see, without injured Wilfried Ndidi, who would offer the defensive rigour in the heart of the park, and there were always going to be a certain issue of the practicality of a Joe Aribo-Oghenkaro Etebo midfield pairing.

Unsurprisingly, both of these two problems—both very predictable—came home to roost for the Super Eagles, as the duo in the centre were targeted and ultimately overrun as the contest went on.

Why replace injured winger Moses Simon with Onuachu?
Why replace Frank Onyeka with Shehu Abdullahi?
Why invite two right-backs and then play centre-back Kevin Akpoguma in that position?
Was there no place for Ramon Azeez, Kelechi Nwakali, Mikel Agu, Uche Agbo, Anderson Esiti or Okechukwu Azubuike?

Perhaps they haven’t always impressed with the national side, but any of them should be a competent option—should Etebo tire or get injured, say—against a side ranked 120th in the world.

These are all questions, perhaps, that the NFF and Amaju Pinnick should have been asking Rohr and his team when federation officials called for a summit on Saturday morning to understand what went wrong in the 4-4 draw.

The federation also have some questions to answer, specifically about the decision to offer Rohr a new contract in May 2020—ahead of the World Cup, before the Eagles’ underwhelming performance and first-round exit at the grandest stage of all.

While Rohr’s handling of the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign—after being drawn with 2012, 2017 and 2019 Africa Cup of Nations champions Zambia, Cameroon and Algeria—was a fine achievement for a progressive, adventurous side, the West African giants haven’t built on the promise of those years.

The coach’s desire to constantly cut the average age of the side, and oversee consistent influxes of new faces may have resulted in Nigeria being the youngest squad at the 2018 World Cup, but has it also denied the Eagles of some critical experience and calming older heads who can help the team get through difficult periods.

Introducing youth around a spine of Ndidi, John Obi Mikel and Odion Ighalo was one thing, but with the three of them absent, Rohr’s Super Eagles project may be entering it’s terminal phase.

The Nigeria National Team have arrived in Freetown ahead of Tuesday's Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Sierra Leone, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.

Upon their arrival in the Sierra Leone capital, a ferry took the players and officials to the City Center.

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen is not part of the group as he has flown to Italy after dislocating his shoulder during the second half of the 4-4 draw against the Leone Stars last weekend.

Gernot Rohr's team had a recovery session on Saturday and also trained at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium the following day.

West Brom central defender Semi Ajayi is walking a disciplinary tightrope in tomorrow's clash just as was the case in the matchday three fixture in Benin City.

The former Arsenal U23 captain picked up a booking against Lesotho, so if he's yellow-carded against Sierra Leone, he will be suspended for the next match.

Nigeria top Group L of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers and would qualify for the tournament in Cameroon if they beat the Leone Stars and Lesotho drop points at home to Benin.

After their last time out, the morale of the team must be in tatters. If you're a betting man, do not put your money on the eagles for a triumph.
