Super Eagles Players in Constantine

Former Nigeria left back, Ifeanyi Udeze has advised Eagles handler Jose Peseiro to cancel the plan of deploying the 3-4-3 formation during the AFCON.

The Portuguese boss Peseiro made use of the 3-4-3 formation during the Super Eagles friendly game against Guinea on Monday.

Jose (Peseiro) mostly prefers the 4-3-3 and also the 4-4-2 formations.

Speaking concerning the utilization of the 3-4-3 formation ahead of the AFCON showpiece, Ifeanyi Udeze said that the team doesn't have players to thrive in that set-up.

“I think he should discard the idea of introducing the 3-4-3 formation in the Super Eagles because for you to operate the formation, your wingbacks must be fast. Unfortunately our wingbacks are not fast and also not comfortable on the ball,” he said on Brila FM.

“Another issue with the formation is the two central midfielders. While the midfielder, who will be the standing one, must be very strong the other midfielder must be someone who must be going forward and falling back to defend.

“So for me this 3-4-3 formation will expose the Super Eagles so Peseiro must do away with this idea.“

Hope that would sound a warning to Nigeria coach as he's never won a game for the Super Eagles playing the 3-4-3 formation.
