Super Eagles Line-up against Lesotho
The super Eagles 11-man squad will see the action on the goalkeeper by Akpeyi. The defenders are Awaziam, Aina, Ndidi and Ekong. The mid-fielders include Iwobi, Aribo and Simon. The forwards include Chukwueze and Victor Osimhen.
Lesotho has never won the Super Eagles in two of their last meetings. However, the Likuena will try and put up a hard fight against the Super Eagles following their hunger to qualify for the AFCON. The Home team will also use the home advantage to pose a great threat to the Super Eagles campaign. The Home fans will try and intimidate the Eagles but we shall likely see the Rohr side continue their dominance of the group. The match starts by 5pm WAT and we hope to see the Super Eagles maintain their lead of the group by claiming a three points lead and maintaining clean sheet against the Likuena of Lesotho.
