Rohr Retains Okoye, Akpoguma For Super Eagles Starting Lineup Vs Leone Stars

Gernot Rohr has retained Maduka Okoye and Kevin Akpoguma in the Super Eagles starting lineup against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

The duo struggled in the first leg of the match at Benin last week Friday which saw the Eagles throw away a four-goal lead.

However, Kelechi Iheanacho will replace Victor Osimhen, who was flown back to Napoli to treat a dislocated shoulder, in leading the attack for the Eagles.

Ola Aina will however take the place of Zaidu Sanusi at left-back, while Leon Balogun and William Troost- Ekong kept their place in defence.

Oghenakaro Etebo, Joe Aribo and Alex Iwobi will take charge of the midfield.

Captain of the team Ahmed Musa and Samuel Chukwueze will also play from the left and right wings.

The Super Eagles hope to gain all three points in the return leg at Sierra Leone.
