The Nigeria Flying Eagles will later today play their first game at the U20 World Youth Championship in Poland against Qatar and we are taking a look at how the boys of coach Paul Aigbogun will line up in the game.
The coach will likely stick to the 4-4-2 formation as against the 4-3-3 used at the Africa U20 Cup of Nations even though the team now has different players from the ones that prosecuted the African championship where they finished 4th earlier this year.
Olawale Oremade retains his spot as number one while the back four will be more of the same at the U20 Africa Cup of Nations, Igho Ogbu, Valentine Ozornwafor and captain Ikouwem Udoh complete the back four.
In the midfield, Success Makanjuola will join Tom Dele-Bashiru, Kingsley Michael and Nnamdi Ofoborh with Michael the most advanced of the trio as he will play ahead of Tom and Ofoborh who is the deepest among the trio.
