Francis Uzoho will start in goal for the Super Eagles against Ghana tonight, while late call-up Innocent Bonke is the replacement for the injured Wilfred Ndidi.
Uzoho has taken the place of Maduka Okoye, who is ill.
And as expected, Napoli striker Victor Osimhen will lead the attack and Leon Balogun has been picked ahead of Kenneth Omeruo to partner William Ekong in the heart of the defence.
Otherwise, coach Augustine Eguavoen has kept faith with the core of the team he played at the recent AFCON in Cameroon.
This means fullbacks Ola Aina and Zaidu Sanusi keep their places, so too Joe Aribo, Moses Simon and Kelechi Iheanacho.
Eguavoen has thus played it safe and so the returning Emmanuel Dennis, uncapped Ademola Lookman and Akinkunmi Amoo as well as Calvin Bassey will all have to start from the bench.
Super Eagles Starting XI vs Ghana – Francis Uzoho – Ola Aina, Zaidu Sanusi, William Ekong, Leon Balogun – Innocent Bonke, Joe Aribo – Moses Simon, Samuel Chukwueze, Kelechi Iheanacho – Victor Osimhen
