Captain Mikel Obi is set to return for the Super Eagles for tomorrow’s final AFCON Group B match against Madagascar with fully recovered Samuel Kalu and Henry Onyekuru looking good to start also.
This is going by yesterday’s training monitored by our man on the spot KOLA DANIEL.
Mikel did not see action in the 1-0 win over Guinea on Wednesday after he struggled against Burundi in the team’s opening game.
Kalu was a late substitute against Guinea to douse all speculations about his fitness after he collapsed in training before the group opener against Burundi.
Henry Onyekuru will be another likely starter for the Eagles tomorrow evening in Alexandria.
He has yet to see action in Egypt and will most likely get his chance to prove the class that helped Galatasaray win a league and cup double in Turkey this past season.
Villarreal youngster Samuel Chukwueze was again outstanding in training with his exciting mazy dribble runs down the flanks.
He posted a decent performance against Burundi, before he came off the bench against Guinea on Wednesday afternoon.
Gernot Rohr is expected to again ring changes to his starting XI after he changed five players against Guinea.
Tomorrow’s game at the Aleandria Stadium will determine the overall winners of the group.
Nigeria top the standings on six points from two matches, with Madagascar second on four points.
Both the group winners and runners-up will stay put in Alexandria for their Round of 16 clashes.
