Nigeria’s friendly match against Tunisia on Tuesday will be the second time they play this year.
The first was a 1-0 loss to another North African team, Algeria, last Friday.
That match was resolved with Ramy Bensebaini’s goal in minute 6.
With Gernot Rohr preparing his team for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers later this year, he was able to put on some new faces and try new tactics.
Ideally, one should expect a much better performance against Tunisia. But Wale Adigun, sports director for Top Radio in Lagos, disagrees.
“I don’t expect any improvement from the team. They have barely played with each other so I will continue to take care of the individuals.
“Chidera Ejuke is a player that I would love to see. Zaidu Sanusi impressed Algeria and Rohr could give him another chance. Cyril Dessers has to start and an unimpressive performance could spell doom for Onuachu. “
Adigun expects a tough test from the Carthage Eagles, whom Nigeria defeated last year in the play-off for third place in the AFCON.
“Tunisians are a group that lives at home. Hope they are better than us as a collective. I won’t be surprised if they beat us again, ”he added.
