CIV VS NIG: The Super Eagles' Strongest Possible Lineup To Play Their Next Crucial AFCON Game

 The Super Eagles of Nigeria are set to resume action in the African Cup of Nations, facing an in-form Ivorian side at the Stade Olympique Alassane Outtara. Despite a less-than-promising start against Equatorial Guinea, the Nigerian National Team aims to redeem themselves in this crucial encounter against Ivory Coast, the tournament hosts. The Elephants showcased brilliance in their opening game against Guinea Bissau as they looked well-motivated heading into this match.


Well, in this article, I will be sharing the Super Eagles' strongest possible lineup for the upcoming AFCON game against Ivory Coast, employing a 4-2-4 formation.

Goalkeeper: Stanley Nwabali.

Stanley Nwabali will resume his position between the goalposts for the Super Eagles in this encounter. Despite conceding a goal in the previous game against Equatorial Guinea, Stanley Nwabali remains the team's trusted goalkeeper.

Defenders: Ola Aina, Semi Ajayi, Calvin Bassey, and Bruno Onyemaechi.

Following William Troost-Ekong's unconvincing performance, it's advisable to bench him for this crucial game. Semi Ajayi and Calvin Bassey will partner in the heart of the defense, with Ola Aina on the right-back and Bruno Onyemaechi returning to the left.

Midfielders: Frank Onyeka and Alex Iwobi.

Frank Onyeka will play in the deep midfield role against Ivory Coast, while Alex Iwobi will focus on the attacking duties in the midfield area for the Super Eagles.

Forwards: Ademola Lookman, Victor Osimhen, Terem Moffi, and Kelechi Iheanacho.

Victor Osimhen will partner with Terem Moffi in the striking position, while Ademola Lookman and Kelechi Iheanacho will handle the left and right-wing positions respectively. This lineup aims to bring balance and strength to the team in pursuit of a successful outcome against Ivory Coast.
