How Teamwork Helped Super Eagles To Tame Mohamed Salah
By on January 13th, 2022. Sports

Football is one of the most beautiful games in the world and one of the reasons is because of its unpredictability. When the draws were done, many Super Eagles fans were scared of Mohamed Salah and their fears are founded

So, in the game against the Super Eagles, Salah was supposed to be the team’s biggest threat. Few days before the game, the Liverpool forward made the final shortlist for FIFA player of the year for his brilliant form and contributions to Liverpool. He was the Pharaohs’ most fearsome attacker and has carried the team well

The Super Eagles rose to the occasion and silenced the winger. The question before the game was: who would mark Mohamed Salah? That question was answered in the game as the team defended as a unit

Wilfred Ndidi, Zaidu Sanusi, Ola Aina, Kenneth Omeruo and William Troost Ekong kept the Pharaohs talisman at bay and for most times in the game he was figuratively missing

Carlos Queiroz knew that Salah had been kept quiet on the right and his chances of cutting inside to shoot had been cut off by the Nigerian defense, he moved the forward to the left but it was worse because Ola Aina can comfortably play as a right back or a left back, so he was equal to whatever Mohamed Salah brought to the table

In difficult games like this, the Egyptian captain had shown that he can be trusted but this time round, the entire Super Eagles defense did their job and Ndidi made sure that supplies to the brilliant forward was cut short. The technical crew of the Super Eagles should also receive praise for their tactical decisions on taming Mohamed Salah. As for Carlos Queiroz, he should look for ways to take the pressure off Salah and strengthen his attack

The game has come and gone but fans of both teams would be thinking: where was Mohamed Salah?
