Musa, Ighalo dropped: How Super Eagles of Nigeria will line up against The Swallows of Burundi

There are no spaces for Ahmed Musa and Odion Ighalo as Gernot Rohr preferred other players in their position.

According to various reports, Eagles will line up a 4-3-3 formation against Swallows of Burundi in their first match at the 2019 AFCON.

Surprisingly, Samuel Chukwueze is preferred alongside Alex Iwobi on the flanks with Paul Onuachu getting the body ahead of AFCON qualifiers top scorer Odion Ighalo.

The midfield will be led by returning John Obi Mikel and with him will be Wilfred Ndidi and Oghenekaro Etebo.

Daniel Akpeyi will be starting in goal instead of Francis Uzoho and Ikechukwu Ezenwa.

Super Eagles vs Burundi: Daniel Akpeyi – Ola Aina, Abdullahi Shehu, Kenneth Omeruo, William Ekong – Mikel Obi, Wilfred Ndidi, Oghenekaro Etebo – Alex Iwobi, Paul Onuachu, Samuel Chukwueze.
