Former Nigerian winger, Tijani Babaginda has revealed that the interim coach of the Super Eagles, Austine Eguavoen will have a huge task of selecting the right strikers that will prosecute Nigeria’s 2022 World Cup playoff against the Black Stars of Ghana.
The former Ajax star made this known in an interview with Completesports, where he said that the impressive form of Victor Osimhen, Sadiq Umar, Odion Ighalo and Lookman Ademola may give Eguavoen something to worry about.
“There is no doubt that the current strikers in the Super Eagles are not doing badly in the Europe. The likes of Osimhen, Ighalo, Sadiq and others are banging the goals for their respective clubs and it’s a sign of good things to come for the team.
” Again, this will definitely give Eguavoen a serious headache in terms of who to select for the game against Ghana. If he gets the right strikers to start then the team will pick the ticket for Qatar.”
Nigeria is expected to face the Black Stars on Match 25 in Accra before the reverse at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja on March 29.
The winner of the game will be one of the five representatives of Africa at the world showpiece in Qatar.
