Speaking on Monday to newsmen, Rohr said: “We have two goalkeepers who didn’t play against South Africa, we’ll make about six changes because we want to see everyone.

“Afelokhai and Akpeyi will feature in both halves of the game.”

The Super Eagles coach is expected to start Daniel Akpeyi in goal for the game, with Rotherham United defender Semi Ajayi partnering William Troost Ekong in the heart of the Super Eagles defense.

Bryan Idowu who missed the team’s last three games will start at right-back, while Jamilu Collins keeps his place at left-back.

In midfield, Victoria Setubal midfielder Mikel Agu could line up alongside John Ogu and Oghenekaro Etebo, with Isaac Success set to lead the line for the Super Eagles, flanked by captain Ahmed Musa and Samuel Kalu.
