Confirmed Nigeria starting XI: Prediction spot on as ex-Chelsea stars, Chukwueze, Ndidi, Iheanacho start

Interim Super Eagles manager Augustine Eguavoen has announced his starting lineup for his side’s second group game of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

In naming his starting lineup, Eguavoen has adhered to the principle of not changing a winning team, meaning there is a start for Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze and former Chelsea star Kenneth Omeruo, just as predicted by allnigeiasoccer.com.

SD Huesca star Kelechi Nwakali, who was spotted training with the probable starters earlier this week, misses out.

It looks like the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations-winning fullback has set up his team in their most preferred formation, 4-2-3-1 with Watford loanee Maduka Okoye getting the nod in goal.

In front of the German-born shot stopper is a back four of Ola Aina, William Troost-Ekong, Kenneth Omeruo and Zaidu Sanusi.

Wilfred Ndidi and Joe Aribo remain as the holding midfielders, with Kelechi Iheanacho deployed in an advanced midfield position.
