Nigeria vs Uganda: Super Eagles coach reveals line-up to face Uganda


Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, is set to make at least six changes to his starting line-up to face Uganda, for their international friendly match on Tuesday.

Ikechukwu Ezenwa, who was in goal for last weekend’s 1-1 draw in South Africa, will play no part in the game billed for the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba, Delta State.

“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,” Rohr revealed during his pre-match conference on Monday ahead of the game.

The German tactician 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.
