Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has revealed that his side are aiming to score more goals and will play offensive football at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Nigeria has included nine forwards in her 23-man squad list for the biennial showpiece.
Changchun Yatai’s Odion Ighalo leads the frontline with Ahmed Musa, Samuel Chukwueze, Moses Simon, Henry Onyekuru, Alex Iwobi, Samuel Kalu, Paul Onuachu and Victor Osimhen all included.
“We have a lot of strikers which means we want to score more goals and play offensive football, we also have good defenders.
“Some of our strikers could play in the midfield or in the plan 3-5-2 on the side, so it is good to have the opportunity to change in our offensive methods.
“We have quickness and ability to change in the offensive department, We can also give them the chance to rest,” Rohr told Goal.
