Coach Augustine Eguavoen has handed a start to in-form Union Berlin striker Taiwo Awoniyi, while regular faces Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho are also in the line-up. Egypt manager Carlos Quieroz has named fearsome attacker Mo Salah, as well as Premier League stars Trezeguet and Mohamed Elneny in his Starting XI.
Both sides have met 18 times previously – with Nigeria amassing eight wins, Egypt has five victories, while the other five ties have ended in draws. Though, the Pharaohs are the favourites to edge this one as they boast of one of the world’s best players in Mo Salah, while Kelechi Iheanacho will be one of the leading lights for the Super Eagles.
