Ghana vs Nigeria: Super Eagles’ likely starting XI in Kumasi

Ghana host Nigeria in the first leg of their 2022 World Cup playoffs on Friday.

The Super Eagles have touched down in Kumasi with a stronger attacking unit than they took to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations two months ago.

Victor Osimhen, Emmanuel Dennis and Odion Ighalo are part of the squad for the two games. predicts the starting XI Augustine Eguavoen is likely to put out at the Babayara Stadium later tonight.

Francis Uzoho will likely start in goal for Nigeria, with Maduka Okoye ruled out with COVID-19.

He will have ‘Oyinbo Wall’ of captain William Troost-Ekong and Leon Balogun in front of him in central defence. The fullback positions will be taken by Ola Aina and Calvin Bassey, according to reports from training.

In midfield, without Wilfred Ndidi and Alex Iwobi, Eguavoen will probably go with the trio of Joe Aribo, Kelechi Iheanacho and Frank Onyeka, who should get the nod ahead of Etebo Oghenekaro.

Upfront, Osimhen and Simon Moses definitely start, while the right flank will go to Samuel Chukwueze ahead of debutant Ademola Lookman or the returning Dennis.
