Iwobi, Ndidi, Etebo, Balogun Start As Nigeria Announce Starting XI Vs LibyaSuper Eagles manager Gernot Rohr has announced his starting line-up for Saturday's 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Libya, allnigeriasoccer.com can exclusively report.

The German has opted to name the same starting line-up which he rehearsed during the national team's penultimate workout on Thursday evening.

Elche CF goalkeeper Francis Uzoho has been preferred ahead of Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Daniel Akpeyi in goal.

Abdullahi Shehu and Jamilu Collins will occupy the right back and left back spots, while Brighton's Leon Balogun and Udinese's Troost-Ekong continue their partnership in central defense, meaning Chelsea loanees Ola Aina and Kenneth Omeruo will enter the game as substitutes if they get game time.

The holding midfielders are Wilfred Ndidi and Oghenekaro Etebo, and Arsenal's Alex Iwobi will play as a number ten in the absence of Obi Mikel.

Odion Ighalo starts in attack and he is supported by wingers Ahmed Musa and Samuel Kalu.
