The lineup for the senior national team of Nigeria for today’s FCON 2021 game against Sudan has been made known to OwnGoalNigeria.com.
We exclusively gathered that coach Austine Eguavoen has decided to switch formation from the 4-2-3-1 the team played against Egypt where they won 1-0 to a more attacking formation.
The team per what we gathered will play 4-2-4 with the emphasis on going all out to attack with Sudan expected to approach the game with a low defensive block to frustrate Nigeria.
Same team like the one that played Egypt will be used for the game that starts by 5pm Nigerian team and a win for the Nigerian team will see them through to the next round of the tournament which is the round of 16.
Maduka Okoye will be in goal with a back four of Ola Aina, Zaidu Sanusi, William Troost Ekong and Kenneth Omeruo. Right in front of them will be the midfield two of Joe Aribo and Wilfred Ndidi.
Moses Simon will start on the left with Samuel Chukwueze retaining his position on the right. The attack will be the duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Taiwo Awoniyi.
