  • Ikeme, Balogun, Ekong, Mikel, Brown, Iheanacho, Iwobi, Moses must play. The remaining 3 slots can be filled in by any one. Iwobi and Iheanacho combination will be too much to handle by the Zambians, Algerians, and Cameroonians.

  • Nice selection i also want nice featuring of this players because that is where the problems will start.

  • Wow…am excited that Arsenal prodigy and talented mildfielder Alex Iwobi is back in the team. Now Zambia should be ready for fierce battle in Ndola. I wish the guys the best of luck in Jesus name.

    Brown Ideye up front, Kelechi behind him. The 2 Moses in the flank. Onazi and Mikel to play in the park while the back four should consist Troost-Ekong, Balogun, Ejiejile and Musa Mohamed. Iwobi should come as Substitute, so also Ahmed Musa and any other one, depending on the need for Substitution that arises.
    All Hail Nigeria – Proud of my Country forever.
