Poland vs Nigeria: What Super Eagles must do – Ex-striker, Olisadebe

Posted on Mar 24 2018 - 6:11am by admin

Nigerian-born former Polish striker Emmanuel Olisadebe says Super Eagles must ensure tight marking in tonight’s Poland vs Nigeria friendly.

The game kicks off 8.45pm.

The Nigeria defence is expected to be tested by Bayern Munich star striker, Robert Lewandowski inside a sold-out 42,000-capacity Municipal Stadium in Wroclaw.

Reacting, Olisadebe urged the defenders to cage the top player.

“He is their best player by many miles, he scores goals and he plays for a top club like Bayern Munich,” Olisadebe told SCORENigeria.

“The Nigerian defenders also play in Europe, but it is not often that they come up against such a top striker like him.

“This will be a good test for both teams before the World Cup and the result does not really matter.

“Poland will face Senegal at the World Cup and so Nigeria will be a good African test for them.

“Nigeria, on the other hand, will from this game know their level of readiness for the World Cup. I believe the better team on the day will win.

“They have some very good players, who play for good teams in good leagues around Europe.

“They deserve their rating because they have won some important games,” he added.

Olisadebe was born in Nigeria, but has gone on to score 11 goals in 25 appearances for adopted country Poland and also featured at the 2002 World Cup.
