Former Nigerian forward, Victor Ikpeba has urged the Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr to play Odion Ighalo and Victor Osimhen in the attack against Cape Verde in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers at the Teslim Balogun Stadium today.
The home side come into the game on the back of a routine 2-0 away victory over Liberia on Saturday. Victor Osimhen and Ahmed Musa scored penalties in either half to help the Super Eagles secure maximum point.
This will be the third meeting between the two sides. Nigeria have one win to their name while the other game ended in a stalemate.
Ikpeba, during Monday Night Football Show on Supersports, said that the German tactician must pair Ighalo and Osimhen to unsettle the Cape Verdian defenders.
“I think Ighalo’s recall will be a wake up call for the young lads in the Super Eagles. However, Gernot Rohr can decide to play both Ighalo and Osimhen in the attack due to their different features. One is tall and the other is strong on the ball due to his physical nature.
“The Super Eagles must score early enough to be able to control the possession of the game. This will also help to relax the nerves of the players if they score first.”
