Coach Samson Siasia has reeled out a largely identical starting XI for tonight’s second group game against Egypt as the duo of Taiwo Awoniyi and Junior Ajayi will be leading the attack.
Only young defender Zaradeen Bello has dropped to the bench from the roster that struggled to a 3-2 win over Mali on Sunday.
Victory over the Junior Pharaohs will take Nigeria one step closer to qualifying for the Rio Olympics men’s football event.
