Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has retained Maduka Okoye, Semi Ajayi, Samuel Chukwueze and Alex Iwobi in his starting line-up for tonight’s friendly against the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia, reports Completesports.com.
Okoye, who plays for Dutch club Sparta Rotterdam was in goal in last Friday’s 1-0 defeat to African champions Algeria.
Hoffenheim of Germany defender Kevin Akpoguma will occupy right-back position. He’s picked ahead of Tyronne Ebuehi who put up a fine performance against Algeria.
Zaidu Sanusi will look to impress once again in his left-back role, while Kenneth Omeruo will pair Leon Balogun in central defence.
Rohr against all expectations has decided to stick with Ajayi for the defensive- midfield position.
The West Bromwich Albion star struggled in the role against Algeria.
Ajayi will be supported in midfield by Everton’s Alex Iwobi.
Moses Simon will come in for the injured Samuel Kalu on the left-wing, while Samuel Chukwueze will play from the right-wing.
Captain of the team Ahmed Musa will lead the attack, while Kelechi Iheanacho will operate behind him.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
