Nigeria have dropped CHAN leading scorer Chisom Chikatara to the bench for the more physical Tunde Adeniji with Jamiu Alimi returning to the starting XI after a disastrous showing against Niger.
Chikatara has scored four goals thus far in Rwanda, but he has been battling a muscle complaint right from the team’s pre-tournament training camp in Pretoria, South Africa.
This has made him a major doubt for today’s clash against fellow West Africans Guinea. But he has passed a late fitness test and could still feature in this contest late on.
|The team to face Guinea at 3pm|
The Shooting Stars defender put every foot wrong and was booked before he was hauled off after just 16 minutes against Niger.
The game is set to kick off at 3pm
Eagles starting XI vs Guinea (4-3-2-1 formation): Ikechukwu Ezenwa – Matthew Etim, Chima Akas, Austin Obaroakpo, Jamiu Alimi – Paul Onobi, Ifeanyi Matthew – Osas Okoro, Prince Aggreh, Usman Mohammed – Tunde Adeniji
