How Super Eagles May Line-up without Oghenekaro Etebo

Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr will be forced into another tactical switch ahead of the high profile international friendly between Brazil and Nigeria.

Stoke City midfielder, Oghenekaro Etebo is the latest player to withdraw due to injury.

The Egypt 2019 Africa Cup of Nations winner is certainly a regular starter following the team smart football in the 2-2 draw with Ukraine last month.

Francis Uzoho will be protected by Jamilu Collins, Stand-in skipper William Troost-Ekong, West Brom defensive shield Semi Ajayi and Leganes newest recruit, Chidozie Awaziem who may be chosen ahead of more traditional full backs Shehu Abdullahi and Tyronne Ebuehi based on his Africa Cup of Nations contributions.

Reliable Wilfred Ndidi will pivot the midfield alongside Joe Aribo while Everton's' Alex Iwobi takes responsibility from the arrow.

Attack line will have Yellow Submarine's Samuel Chukwueze, in-form Victor Osimhen and Nantes winger, Moses Simon as they will be saddled with goalscoring responsibility.
