Cameroun’s Belgian coach, Hugo Broos, has given Gernot Rohr tips on how the Super Eagles could exploit the weaknesses he noticed in the Algerian team when both teams met in Algiers, reports owngoalnigeria.com.

Algeria forced Cameroun into a 1-1 draw at home in their first World Cup 2018 qualifiers, a result which Broos felt could have been better for his side if they had exploited the weakness he noticed in the defence of Algeria.

The Belgian coach lamented his team’s inability to convert the numerous chances they had in the game as the Algerians were naive defensively, with the lack of pace of central defenders, Liasinne Camaduro and Carl Medjani, also mentioned by the manager.

His strikers failed to thread ball behind to exploit the lack of pace of Algeria’s central defence duo, something he thinks Gernot Rohr should exploit when both teams clash on November 12 in Uyo.

He also pointed out that the Algerians are not coordinated in attack, with the likes of Islam Slimani and Riyad Mahrez getting in the way of each other during the game.

Nigeria is expected to unleash their striking force of Ahmed Musa, Moses Simon, Victor Moses, Kelechi Iheanacho, Odion Ighalo and Alex Iwobi on the Algerians when the teams clash in Uyo next week.

But there are concerns that the Algerians could capitalize on the Eagles’ concentration on attack to shock Nigeria in front of their home fans.
