Lookman, Osimhen leads Super Eagles attack against Ghana


The interim head coach of the Super Eagles Augustine Eguavoen, has made five changes for the much-anticipated second leg of the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff against the Black Star of Ghana.

In the attack, Victor Osimhen will lead from the centre with Adesina Lookman, who replaced Samuel Chukwueze, and Emmanuel Dennis to support him from both flanks.

Oghenekaro Etebo is expected to take Nantes’ Moses Simon’s place in the middle while Francis Uzoho will maintain his position between the sticks.

Nigeria is billed to face Ghana for the return leg of their 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja at 6 pm.

The first leg finished goalless at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi on Friday.

The winner of the tie will earn one of the five tickets for African representatives at the World Cup billed for Qatar later this year.
