Sudan Team News
Sudan have now failed to score in any of their previous six games since scoring two past Guinea back in October, and we anticipate Tia to make some changes in attack following Tuesday’s goalless draw with Guinea-Bissau.
Al-Merrikh striker Al-Gozoli Nooh is one of the few players vying for a starting spot, and he might replace Yasin Hamed, who failed to make an impact last time out before being substituted in the 66th minute.
Mustafa Elfadni, Salaheldin Nemer, Mustafa Karshoum, and Mazin Mohamedein are expected to start in defence, sheltering Abou, who produced a miraculous 82nd-minute penalty save to deny Pele against the Djurtus.
Nigeria Team News
Nigeria will be missing former Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo, who was stretchered off the field in the 79th minute against Egypt last time out due to an injury.
Semi Ajayi, who plays for West Bromwich Albion in the Championship, should replace him in the starting lineup and form a defensive partnership with William Troost-Ekong.
Following his winner against the Pharaohs, Iheanacho now has four goals for club and country, and we anticipate the Leicester City midfielder to lead the attack with Taiwo Awoniyi, who is 24 years old.
Joe Aribo of Rangers drew attention when he turned on the flair in the middle of the park, and we anticipate the 25-year-old to keep his place in the Super Eagles’ midfield pivot with Wilfred Ndidi of Leicester City.
Nigeria XI: Okoye; Aina, Troost-Ekong, Ajayi, Sanusi; Aribo, Ndidi; Chukweze, Iheanacho, Simon; Awoniyi
Sudan XI: Abou; Elfadni, Nemer, Karshoum, Mohamedein; G Omer, Khidir, Al-Rasheed, A Omer; Nooh, Abdelrahman
