After he maintained the same starting XI in the first two U17 World Cup matches against Hungary and Ecuador, coach Manu Garba has made four changes for tonight’s final group game against Australia.
And again the controversial Abba Bichi will not start as many Nigerians had hoped.
Goalkeeper Joseph Oluwabusola has come in for Daniel Jinadu, while Quadri Edun, Akinkunmi Amoo and Peter Olawale will all get their first starts in Brazil.
Hat-trick hero against Ecuador Said Ibrahim will start again, but striker Wisdom Ubani is dropped to the bench.
Besides the goalkeeper, Manu has also kept faith with a defence that has conceded four goals in two matches.

Joseph Oluwabusola – Oluwatimilehin Adeniyi, Charles Etim, Ferdinard Ikenna, Usman Ibrahim – Samson Tijani, Quadri Edun, Akinkunmi Amoo, Said Ibrahim – Peter Olawale, Olakunle Olusegun
