F/Eagles drop Uche Agbo
Uche Agbo out for Taiye Ola
The diminutive but energetic Ola will come in for the sleek Agbo, who scored one of Nigeria’s two goals in a 3-2 loss to Ghana on Friday but was seen as struggling with the pace of this West African derby.
Wikki Tourist striker Aminu Umar has also shrugged off an ankle problem from the Ghana clash and will start against five-time world champions.
Tactically, Umar will play more on the wings to ensure big centre-forward Alhaji Gero gets better service. Enugu Rangers striker Gero did not get enough service from the midfield and wings against the Black Satellites.
