William Ekong

Gernot Rohr looks set to line up the same starting XI tonight in Sfax with the one he listed against Libya in Uyo with Ola Aina the only player coming in for the injured Shehu Abdullahi.

Aina came on in the 18th minute when Abdullahi could not continue in Uyo on Saturday after he suffered a leg muscle injury.

The Chelsea loanee struggled at the beginning, but soon settled down to ensure the Eagles won 4-0 and also posted a clean sheet against the North Africans.

This means Alex Iwobi will continue in central midfield, while stand-in skipper Ahmed Musa plays from the left wing and Samuel Kalu on the right.

Jamilu Collins impressed at leftback in his official debut for the Super Eagles and so keeps his place in the starting team as well.

It was this starting side who trained for an hour in Sfax last night on arrival from Nigeria.

Kick-off time is 7pm tonight.

Expected Eagles starting XI (4-2-3-1) – Francis Uzoho – Jamilu Collins, Ola Aina, Leon Balogun, William Ekong – Wilfred Ndidi, Oghanekaro Etebo – Ahmed Musa (captain), Alex Iwobi, Samuel Kalu – Odion Ighalo
