Coach Gernot Rohr will today against Liberia stick with the 3-5-2 formation, which served him very well against Central African Republic last month in Cameroon.
This means Chidozie Awaziem, who was outstanding in Cameroon, has retained his place in a three-man defence, while Moses Simon and Jamilu Collins will again play as wing backs.
Otherwise, there are no surprises in the starting XI as Wilfred Ndidi, Alex Iwobi and Joe Aribo all return.
As expected returnee Odion Ighalo will start from the bench.
Kick-off is 5pm in Nigeria.
