Former Nigerian International, Victor Agali has suggested a possible formation to use against Sudan at the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cameroon.

The Super Eagles will take on Sudan in a 2021 AFCON tie on Saturday evening.

Nigeria had defeated Egypt 1-0 in their first game on Tuesday, thanks to Kelechi Iheanacho’s goal while Sudan drew with Guinea-Bissau.

But Agali the Super Eagles Interim Manager, Austin Eguavoen to retain the strike partnership of Taiwo Awoniyi and Iheanacho against Sudan.

He also wants the Super Eagles coach to maintain the 4-4-2 formation he used against Egypt.

Speaking on ‘No Holds Barred’ on Brila FM, Agali said, “Iheanacho is not someone you want to play as a point man, so it is better to have him support someone and Awoniyi coming with his form from the Bundesliga and after missing Osimhen, it is better to leave Awoniyi and have Iheanacho roam around him and that has happened.

“Iheanacho is someone that can drop in the midfield and looking at the formation against Egypt we played a classical 4-4-2 where we had Aribo and Ndidi in the middle.

“Iheanacho was like a pyramid in front and supported the guys behind. So it worked for us because we were very aggressive and we controlled the game, so I expect the coach to maintain that.”

The kick-off time for Nigeria vs Sudan is 5 pm.
