According to reports, Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has made three changes to his teams starting line-up for their next game in the World Cup against Iceland on Friday.
The German has decided to drop three players from the squad that lost 2-0 to Croatia on Saturday.
The coach did not, however, make wholesome changes and has kept the core of the team once again on Friday.
The trio of Kelechi Iheanacho, Tyronne Ebuehi and Ahmed Musa have returned to the starting lineup for Friday while Odion Ighalo, Shehu Abdullahi and Alex Iwobi have been dropped.
The need to inject pace and urgency in the attack of the Eagles is largely the reason why Musa will start in attack with Victor Moses moving to the left flank.
This means that Iheanacho will take the spot of Odion Ighalo in the starting line-up.
See the lineup below;
Super Eagles starting X1 vs Iceland: Uzoho, Balogun, Ekong, Ebuehi, Idowu, Ndidi, Etebo, Mikel, Musa, Ihenacho, Moses.
The Super Eagles’ opening game loss to Croatia has been adjudged as the 29th best of the 32 teams participating at the World Cup after the first round of games.
British newspaper Daily Telegraph, rated Nigeria as only better than Saudi Arabia which lost the opening game of the competition 5-0 to host country Russia and debutants Panama who lost 3-0 to Belgium.
