As the Super Eagles step up their preparations for the international friendly game against Egypt in Asaba, coach of the team Gernot Rohr experimented the 3-5-2 formation in training, Sports&study.org reports.
Rohr lined up his wards in his favorite 4-2-3-1 formation against Seychelles but he could switch to a new formation judging by the team’s training session earlier today watched by our correspondent.
The coach lined up the possibles with the trio of Leon Balogun, William Troost-Ekong and Kenneth Omeruo playing as the three in central defense while Moses Simon and Jamilu Collins occupied the right and left wing-back roles respectively.
Wilfred Ndidi, Semi Ajayi and Alex Iwobi were the three in midfield with the duo of Paul Onuachu and Ahmed Musa leading the team as central strikers during the session.
Rohr’s decision to try out the formation could see him use it in the game against the host of the Africa Cup of Nations Egypt on Tuesday although a final decision will be reached in their final training session tomorrow.
