Red-hot Everton FC of England star, Alex Iwobi, Wilfried Wilfred Ndidi and Joe Aribo will marshal Super Eagles midfield in tonight’s friendly against Portugal.
Both countries’ A squads go for each other’s jugular at the 50,000-capacity Estádio José Alvalade on Portugal.
The midfielders, who ply their trade in English Premier League, are expected to provide the attackers good supplies of the ball and also bring their experience to bear against the World Cup bound Portuguese.
Francis Uzoho will man the goal post, while he gets cover from Bright Osayi-Samuel, captain William Troost-Ekong, Kelvin Akpoguma and Calvin Bassey.
Hard-tackling Terem Moffi will join Aribo, Iwobi and Ndidi in the midfield, while the duo of Ademola Lookman and Moses Simon will lead Nigeria’s assault in the attack.
The substitutes are Paul Onuachu, Chidozie Awaziem, Cyriel Dessers, Samuel Chukwueze, Tyronne Ebuehi, Duru, Onyemaechi, Adebayo, Emmanuel Dennis, Oghenekaro Etebo, Maduka Okoye and Frank Onyeka.
