To give them credit, they've been able to ride Forlan and Suarez deep into the past few tournaments they've played in. Unless Nigeria can pull off a mega-upset of Spain, they'll be through to the semifinals in the Confed Cup.
Though I don't get why they won't play Gargano and Lodeiro in the MF together. Those are the two players most likely to give the team some fluidity.
