Scotland manager Gordon Strachan insists his side will come up with a formula targeted at neautralising Nigeria’s physical play, when both sides meet in an international friendly at Fulham’s Craven Cottage on Wednesday.
All 30 players called up in the African champions’ training squad- except Nnamdi Oduamadi and Sunday Mba- trained in London on Monday evening.
Coach Stephen Keshi could call on the likes of Chelsea FC duo Victor Moses and Mikel Obi, CSKA Moscow’s Ahmed Musa, Fenerbahce’s striker Emmanuel Emenike and Cercle Brugge marksman Michael Uchebo, for the London friendly.
Stratchan is confident his side are capable of evening up the firepower and pace the Nigeria squad could offer.
“If we’re not as physical as them then we have to move the ball about so those physical challenges aren’t there. We’ll stick to what we’re good at,” said Strachan.
“We’ll try to outnumber people in certain areas, use our tenacity, and our fitness levels.”
