Nigeria only need to avoid defeat, to qualify for
the round of 16 and hope Croatia beat Iceland in
the group’s decisive encounters on Tuesday. Both
matches will be played concurrently.
Ahead of the game, Rohr is worried by Moses’
attitude, as the Chelsea player has failed to play a
pivotal role at the tournament.
For the second Group D game against Iceland,
Rohr was forced to switch to a 3-5-2 formation,
with Moses playing as a wingback and captain
John Mikel Obi dropping deep in midfield.
But Moses apparently did not like the decision
that restricted him from “expressing his talent”.
Although Rohr told reporters afterwards that he
was satisfied with the player’s display against
Iceland, but he showed his frustration during the
match, with Moses strolling back after misplacing
a pass or losing the ball.
The Guardian also claims that Nigeria Football
Federation (NFF) President, Amaju Pinnick and
many other dignitaries had to go to the dressing
room, to specifically convince Moses to play in
the role before the game.
