Reports from Russia indicate that the Super Eagles’ Coach Gernot Rohr is planning massive changes in theNigeria team to face Iceland
Rohr is taking the drastic steps after Nigeria were condemned to a 2-0 defeat by a superior Croatian side on Saturday.
As reported on AOIFootball.com. players like Simeon Nwankwo may be given the nod over Odion Ighalo who has been Rohr’s preferred choice in the striking role, and the manager may also rest captain Mikel John Obi and give either John Ogu or Joel Obi the chance to pair with the duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Oghenekaro Etebo. Ogenyi Onazi may also be given a look- in the report stated.
It is also understood that one of Ahmed Musa or Kelechi Iheanacho may also be picked to start ahead of Victor Moses who is yet to find his rhythm in the past 3 games he has featured for the team.
Abdullahi Shehu and Bryan Idowu may keep their places but will be under pressure as Tyronne Ebuehi and Elderson Echiejile are breathing down their necks to return to the starting lineup.
