With Final 23 man list released over the weekend, the Super Eagles will be looking to end their preparatory stages of the FIFA World Cup on a high after losing 2 – 1 to England last weekend.
Nigeria endured something of a Jekyll & Hyde performance against England at the weekend. While the Super Eagles were somewhat all over the place in the first half – Gareth Southgate’s men could have led 4-0 at the interval – they were a team transformed in the second, as a tactical switch allowed them greater possession and a fresh impetus.
Alex Iwobi’s goal was deserved, and the African side were, in fact, the better team throughout the final 45 minutes.
Thus, they will be looking for a morale-boosting victory this time out as they take on a Czech Republic team that failed to qualify for the World Cup.
Karel Jarolim’s team were thumped 4-0 by Australia last time out and have been on something of a dip in form, winning just one of their last three games, a 4-1 beating of China.
With games to come against stellar opposition in Russia, Nigeria know they must pick up momentum quickly, and this week’s fixture offers the perfect opportunity to do just that.
Kick off time for the Nigeria Vs Czech Match is 2pm Nigerian Time.
