Nigeria Coach Names Same Starting XI Vs Libya, Tweaks Tactics & understands that Nigeria coach Salisu Yusuf has refused to press the panic button in the wake of his side's goalless draw with Rwanda in the African Nations Championship, as he has named the same starting line-up for Friday evening's clash against Libya.

Whilst it is confirmed that the same eleven players will step out onto the Grand Stade de Tanger (Tanger) turf, Yusuf has tweaked his tactics and will use a different approach against the Libyans.

The Super Eagles have studied the previous games played by the Libyans and the coach has urged the players to capitalize on the weaknesses of the North Africans.

Enyimba goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa starts in goal and he will be protected by defenders Osas Okoro, Daniel Itodo,Stephen Eze and Kalu Orji.

Ifeanyi Ifeanyi was heavily criticized for his performance against Rwanda but Salisu Yusuf has kept faith with him, and the former Flying Eagles star starts in midfield.

Lobi Stars frontman Antony Okpotu will lead the charge for goals.
