Returnee Eagle, Odion Ighalo, has been named by Gernot Rohr in the starting 11 against the Blue Sharks of Cape Verde, a clear indication the Eagles want to attack the Islanders. Ighalo takes the place of Kelechi Iheanacho – the only replacement to the team that started against Liberia last Saturday in Morocco.
The Super Eagles need a point to stay top of Group C and qualify for the last phase of qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup scheduled for Qatar.
The Super Eagles must be cautious and not sit back, inviting the Blue Sharks to attack as the visitors have nothing to lose by losing in Lagos.
Ahmed Musa has assured Nigerians that the pressure not to lose will bring out the best in the team as they seek another step towards their sixth participation in the World Cup.
