The midfield duo of Etebo Oghenekaro and Joel Obi would have one more chance to impress the coach of the Super Eagles as Nigeria take on Congo in a pre-world cup friendly.
Etebo was left out of the team in the last two friendlies while Joel Obi was present and gets another chance before coach Gernot Rohr names his world cup squad.
Rohr would also be hoping that the ‘Oyinbo wall’ forge their partnership further as he names both Leon Balogun and Troost-Ekong in the starting line-up.
Elderson Echiejile would be hoping to reclaim his left back position while Junior Lokosa and Simeon Nwankwo would be hoping to bang in the goals.
Starting XI: Uzoho, Elderson, Ebuehi, Balogun, Troost-Ekong, Onazi,Joel Obi, etebo, Junior Lokosa, Iheanacho, Simeon Nwankwo
