Super Eagles Face Algeria With Unchanged Starting Lineup

Super Eagles Face Algeria With Unchanged Starting Lineup

Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has named an unchanged lineup for today’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations semifinal clash against the Desert Foxes of Algeria, reports Completesports.com.

Rohr maintains the same starting lineup that defeated the Bafana Bafana of South Africa 2-1 in the quarterfinal on Wednesday.

Daniel Akpeyi keeps his position in goal for his fifth appearance in the competition and will hope his goal is not breached after letting in three goals in the team’ last two games.

Jamilu Collins will start his second game of the competition where he is expected to have a busy evening against Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez.

Chidozie Awaziem, Kenneth Omeruo and William Troost-Ekong complete the four-man defence.

The trio of Wilfred Ndidi, Oghenekaro Etebo and Alex Iwobi will marshall the midfield.

The competition’s top scorer Odion Ighalo will lead the attack and will be flanked by Samuel Chukwueze and Ahmed Musa.

Super Eagles Lineup Vs Algeria:

Akpeyi, Awaziem, Omeruo, Troost-Ekong, Collins, Ndidi, Etebo, Iwobi, Chukwueze, Musa, Ighalo

    I expect the coach to start Aina over Awazieme, we need right fullback attacking threat. Wishing them best of luck. Super eagle winning by 2nil.

    Good Lineup, good players in a great nation, Nigeria I Wish You All the best….go for victory We are here for you

     
  • My fear is just the goalkeeping department. Mahrez is capable of taking some crazy shots outside of the box. Well i hope and pray Akpeyi is ready

    Currently watching the Tunisia vs Senegal Match …and something wierd just strike my thoughts after that harsh penalty decision on Senegal!!

    This tournament is taking place in Egypt …and I have already seen the officiating between Tunisia vs Senegal …and oh my…there is some level of biase and “favouritism” here !!

    Haba CAF … must we do like “FIFA” in our own African tournament??? Must the officiating favours a particular nation because of their location and origin against another ???

    Abeg MY SUPER EAGLES PLAYERS  …. against Algeria…just know you are playing against the Algerians, the officiating team and even against majority of the crowd in the stadium …  Be ready for their antics and try to play it out, clean tackles and 110% focus on the entire duration of the game !!!

      Believe in your team mates, play to your strengths and bury your chances when you get one!!!
    The God, we serve will be with us as always !!

    Success Super Eagles !
    God bless Nigeria !!!
