AFCON: Super Eagles' probable starting XI for semi-final clash against South Africa

1 min read


News that Victor Osimhen will be available to play for Nigeria against South Africa in their Africa Cup of Nations was greeted with joy by both his team-mates and fans on Tuesday evening.

Osimhen is expected to go straight into the Super Eagles starting XI for the match.

Jose Peseiro will likely stick to his winning formula, which means Osimhen would be supported in attack by top scorer Ademola Lookman and Simon Moses.

The 3-4-3 formation Peseiro has reverted to, has William Troost-Ekong, Semi Ajayi and Calvin Bassey shielding Nwabali in defence.

Ola Aina and Zaidu Sanusi will operate on the flanks, while Alex Iwobi and Frank Onyeka will occupy the midfield.

Kick off is 6pm WAT.
