Nigeria vs Lesotho: Where the game will be won or lost

It remains to be seen if Nigeria’s boss plays Wilfred Ndidi from the off or chooses to rest the Leicester City anchorman against Lesotho.

If Rohr gives the ball winner a breather, that leaves him with only Oghenekaro Etebo and Joe Aribo in the middle of the park, neither of whom is a natural defensive midfielder.

There are still questions over Aribo’s place in the team particularly as his undoubted talent barely shows in a two-man midfield.

Semi Ajayi or Abdullahi Shehu may start in defensive midfield, but the former’s best body of work is in central defence while Shehu is a natural right-back.

This leaves Rohr with somewhat difficult decisions to make and getting it wrong could draw the ire of an insatiable fanbase that were critical of his decision to invite only three natural central midfielders in the first place.
