Super Eagles XI: Okoye, Aina, Iheanacho Start, Musa, Onuachu Benched in 3-5-2 Formation

By Olamide Oyetunji - Nigerians have been eagerly waiting for the Super Eagles starting eleven for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier with Sierra Leone as several online media are making their permutations.

But some sources are special and more reason why i am bringing you this leaked Super Eagles likely lineup from the stable of owngoalnigeria.com.

According to their latest publication, Gernot Rohr is going for a more protective 3-5-2 formation after the Leone Stars broke down the 4-2-3-1 four times last Friday.

Maduka Okoye will have another opportunity in goal and he would be protected by five defenders in Leon Balogun, Kevin Akpoguma, William Troost-Ekong while Zaidu Sanusi will feature as a wing-back on the left flank and Ola Aina is a new introduction as wing-back on the right.

The midfield trio of Alexander Iwobi, Joe Ayodele Aribo and Oghenekaro Etebo are going to be doing the business from midfield while Villarreal CF winger will operate as striker alongside Kelechi Iheanacho who replaced the injured Victor Osimhen.
