Nigeria vs Iceland Super Eagles starting Line Up Revealed

Super Eagles disappointing 2-0 loss to Croatia in their opening game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup have been followed by debates on some questionable decisions of Gernot Rohr.

Gernot Rohr has made three changes to the starting line-up for Super Eagles against Iceland on Friday.

The German has decided to drop three players from the squad that lost 2-0 to Croatia on Saturday, Owngoal is reporting.

The coach did not, however, make wholesome changes and has kept the core of the team once again on Friday.

The trio of Kelechi Iheanacho, Tyronne Ebuehi and Ahmed Musa have returned to the starting lineup for Friday while Odion Ighalo, Shehu Abdullahi and Alex Iwobi have been dropped.

The need to inject pace and urgency in the attack of the Eagles is largely the reason why Musa will start in attack with Victor Moses moving to the left flank.

This means that Iheanacho will take the spot of Odion Ighalo in the starting line-up.

Super Eagles starting X1: Uzoho, Balogun, Ekong, Ebuehi, Idowu, Ndidi, Etebo, Mikel, Musa, Ihenacho, Moses.
