Success And Iheanacho To Start Upfront Together?
Isaac Success And Kelechi Iheanacho Giving Manu Garba A Selection Headache
The fine form of Isacc Success and Kelechi Iheanacho is currently threatening Coach Manu Garba's preferred starting line-up against Brazil.
Manu Garba has said so many times about knowing which players will start for Nigeria in their opening game but that claim appears not to be the same anymore.
Granada's Isaac Success had a rare start upfront in his first training session with the team and pairing Awoniyi in attack they dovetailed nicely with both forwards scoring three goals each.
On his part, Manchester City Kelechi Iheanacho’s fine form for his team before joining his colleagues might see him edge out Kingsley Sokari for the role of the man behind the strikers.
Iheanacho played in the role in same training sessions but unlike Sokari who appears contented with setting up goals, the Man City wonderkid scored a hat-trick, much to the delight of the coaches.
In two training sessions, he has now scored 5 goals and that form might force the coaches to drop Sokari in his favour ahead of the Brazil game.
The dilemma sits nicely with the coaches as it proves they have the best legs in camp. Even Musa Yahaya is struggling to nail a spot down the left as in form Saviour Godwin is pushing the Tottenham Hotspurs teen star for same role.
