Super Eagles chief coach Salisu Yusuf has said the team have fixed some of their defensive frailties in their last three matches.

The back four has been widely regarded as the Eagles Achilles Heel, but Yusuf said they have worked hard to make that department a lot more solid recently.

“The defence was a worry, but in the last three matches we have played we have only conceded a goal,” he stated on a live television programme Friday.

“We are playing with a lot more discipline back in the defence with players who are playing regularly at their clubs.”

The central defence partnership of Leon Balogun and William Troost-Ekong will be dislodged for the upcoming World Cup qualifier in Zambia following injury to Balogun.

However, Yusuf said recalled Kenneth Omeruo and Jamiu Alimi will now battle to partner Troost-Ekong in the heart of the defence with last-minute replacement Uche Agbo from Granada CF expected to come around for the experience.

He also revealed that both he and head coach Gernot Rohr have adopted a 4-2-3-1 formation for the Eagles because that is what suits the team with the talent at their disposal now.
