Nigeria vs. Cameroon – Mikel, Chukwueze out as Ighalo, Moses start for Eagles

Nigeria are expected to welcome some key first-team players back into their starting XI for this match after naming a second-string side against Madagascar.

Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi, Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi and Chelsea loanee Kenneth Omeruo are among the names likely to return.


Moses Simon should also regain his place, while Daniel Akpeyi will expect to be recalled in goal after keeping clean sheets in the opening two group games.

Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana is also yet to concede in this summer’s tournament and will retain the gloves for Cameroon.

Seedorf made four changes for their final group game against Benin and could welcome Clinton N’Jie and Gaetan Bong back into this starting XI for this one.

Georges Mandjeck missed the final group game altogether but will win his 50th cap if he returns on Saturday, while Paris Saint-Germain’s Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is expected to start behind the strikers.

Nigeria possible starting lineup:
Akpeyi; Awaziem, Omeruo, Ekong, Aina; Etebo, Ndidi; Simon, Iwobi, Musa; Ighalo

Cameroon possible starting lineup:
Onana; Fai, Ngadeu-Ngadjui, Yaya, Oyongo; Zambo Anguissa, Mandjeck, N’Jie; Choupo-Moting; Bahoken, Toko Ekambi
