Getty Images CENTRE-BACK – Chidozie Awaziem The 24-year-old returns to the Super Eagles’ starting XI having featured as a substitute against Benin Republic and Lesotho. He must pair well with Troost-Ekong to stop the experienced Cameroonian strikers. RIGHT-BACK – Shehu Abdullahi The utility player was in action when Gernot Rohr’s men silenced the Indomitable Lions at Egypt 2019. His experience is key in this showdown.
