I just pray that Nigeria coach should know that he has the following problems
1.his left and right full backs.
2. If either of his central defenders is injured there is no replacement that is either Balogun or Ekong
3. The moment Onazi cant play Mikel is in trouble at the midfield whether heplays as defensive or attacking midfield
4. There is urgent need for good finishers from right and left wing.
5. The bench should be stronger than it is currently constituted.
6. Our keepers height may be a problem everybody in that defense line is short

These are key to making the team stronger.
