Former Eagles captain and coach, Christian Chukwu has harped on the need for a creative player in the squad heading to this year’s World Cup, as he reckons the team need a playmaker who can help the attackers rain goals.
With that in view, Chukwu advised Eagles’ current handler, Gernot Rohr to pay attention to lining out quality midfielders that can create chances for the strikers to score at Russia 2018.
He, however, noted that the Eagles have not been scoring many goals because the team lacks a playmaker that can spread good passes to the strikers.
The one fondly called ‘Chairman’ then called on the team’s technical crew to work hard to find a solution to all the ills, as Nigeria cannot succeed in Russia if the strikers fail to their chances during matches.
He stressed that bringing out the best in the players from all departments of the team should be the focal point for the coaches when assembling their team for the World Cup.
Chukwu, however, acknowledged that the Eagles have quality young players that could stun their opponents at the World Cup.
