4 Things We Learned From Nigeria ’ s 2 – 1 Win Over Zambia



The Super Eagles of Nigeria began their 2018 World Cup qualification campaign with a 2 – 1 win over the Chipopolo of Zambia . Here are four things we learned from the encounter;
1.Iwobi And Iheanacho Are The Future

It has been ages since Nigeria had a truly young frontline but in Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho , we have two twenty -year – old players who are true hot prospects .

Iwobi scored a brace in Nigeria’s friendly against Plateau United and Iheanacho scored again for the Eagles following his super strike against Tanzania .

If they keep this up , I just might be looking forward to watching the Eagles again.

2. The Super Eagles Defense Is A Mess

There was a time when I thought Kenneth Omeruo was going to become a star but he has hardly lived up to his potential . He put in a disastrous showing today and will receive most of the blame for Zambia ’s goal .

Save for Troost Ekong , Nigeria could well have played without a backline

3. Gernot Rohr Is Ticking All The Right Boxes

Newly appointed technical adviser , Gernot Rohr has made a great start to managerial life . Under him, the Eagles look more assured and at times , they were such a joy to watch in Sunday’ s encounter .

If he can fix that defense , this team will return to glory days in no time

4. Carl Ikeme Is An Astute Replacement For Enyeama

Vincent Enyeama will go down in history as one of Nigeria’ s greatest goalkeepers and his retirement last year nearly gave me a heart attack . However , Carl Ikeme has proved equal to the task since getting called up to the team by Sunday Oliseh.

He put in another immense shift today , keeping Nigeria in the match despite our defense .
