Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has named the same starting line-up for the third successive 2018 World Cup qualifying game.
Rohr will send out the same Super Eagles team, that defeated Cameroon 4-0 at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo and drew 1-1 in Yaounde last month, against the Chipolopolo on Saturday.
This means Odion Ighalo will lead the Super Eagles of Nigeria’s attack and will be supported from the flanks by Victor Moses and Simon Moses.
Home-based Super Eagles Captain, Ikechukwu Ezenwa retains his place in his goal, while the Leon Balogun-William Troost-Ekong partnership starts in central defense.
Tianjin TEDA midfielder, Mikel Obi, will captain the team.
Kick-off is 5 pm.
DF: Shehu, Balogun, Troost, Elderson
MDF: Onazi, Mikel (c), Ndidi
FWD: Simon, Ighalo, Moses
