No Plumptre, Ordega starts as Waldrum makes changes to Nigeria’s XI against Botswana

There will be oyinbo defender Ashleigh Plumptre as Super Falcons of Nigeria tackle Botswana in a must-win game at Stade Moulay Hassan, Rabat.

With Asisat Oshoala out of the tournament through injury, Francisca Ordega will be starting in her place. Leicester City defender Ashleigh Plumptre will also not play a part due to injury.

The defender reportedly carried a knock and trained separately from others but failed in her race to be fit for the clash.

Goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie also returns after missing out on the first game through suspension.

Here is the starting XI

16. Chiamaka Nnadozie
3. Osinachi Ohale
5. Onome Ebi (c)
7. Toni Oyedupe Payne
9. Ifeoma Onumonu
10. Rita Chikwelu
15. Rasheedat Ajibade
18. Halimatu Ayinde
20. Michelle Alozie
13 Ngozi Sonia Okobi-Okeoghene
17 Francisca Ordega

That is about three changes to the team that played the first game with Francisca Ordega coming in for Asisat Oshoala, Chiamaka Nnadozie for Tochukwu Oluehi and Ngozi Sonia Okobi-Okeoghene for Ashleigh Plumptre
