Super Eagles club-less captain Ahmed Musa would lead the team as they seek redemption against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone in their AFCON qualifiers clash in Freetown.
Just as he did in the first leg, Ahmed Musa is leading the team as they look to bounce back from their dismal second half display against the same team.
William Troost-Ekong who plays in the English lower league with Watford is also preferred over Semi Ajayi who has started in almost all the games for West Brom in the Premier League.
Former Chelsea player, Ola Aina is preferred on the left back ahead of Jamilu Collins and Sanusi Zaidu. It is the first time Aina is playing for Eagles since AFCON.
In what looks like a 4-2-3-1, here is our the Super Eagles will line up this afternoon.
Nigeria who sit top of their group with 7 points will be out to redeem their image after throwing away a four goal lead against Sierra Leone in Nigeria on Friday.
