Rohr retains 3-5-2 formation, same starting line-up against Argentina

As Nigerians wait in anticipation of the cracking World Cup encounter between the Super Eagles and Argentina in St. Petersburg Russia, VON can authoritatively confirm that team coach Gernot Rohr will stick with the 3-5-2 system deployed against Iceland on Friday.

It has also been confirmed that Rohr will use the same starting line-up he deployed against the Scandanavians.

Typically, Nigerian football teams are set-up to play the 4-3-3 or 4-4-2 formation.

But having tested the 3-5-2 formation against Argentina in a friendly match last November and also against England in Wembley a few weeks ago, it is not surprising the German tactician has decided to use this strategy again.
