Official - Super Eagles Lineup Plus How 4-2-3-1 Will Work Against Egypt, Simon To Pin Salah




The senior national team of Nigeria will line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation when they take on Egypt in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in their opening game of the tournament.

Interim Coach Austine Eguavoen lined the players up in a 4-2-3-1 formation in what is his first game as coach of the team and Owngoalnigeria.com has obtained details on how the formation will work.

Eguavoen in his bid to pin the dangerman of the Egyptian team has told Nantes wing forward Moses Simon to help left full back Zaidu Sanusi in tracking the forward who will operate from the right of the Egyptian attack.

Simon’s primary aim is to ensure that at no time is Zaidu isolated against Salah. The coach also expects him to use his energy to help in transiting defence into attack when in possession.

With the back four expected to be protected by the duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Joe Aribo, the coach has instructed Kelechi Iheanacho to play close to them but to also work off the shoulder of Taiwo Awoniyi who is leading the line.

Samuel Chukwueze has the license to attack the left full back of the Egyptian team cutting in with his ability to dribble and always on his strong foot which will enable him to aim for goal or pick a pass with ease.
