Nigeria's starting lineup vs Guinea-Bissau : Eguavoen tells fans to expect 'one or two changes'
Super Eagles interim boss Augustine Eguavoen did not give much away when asked if he was going to make wholesale changes to the squad for Wednesday evening's Africa Cup of Nations tie against Guinea-Bissau.

The three-time African champions have qualified for the round of sixteen with a game to spare and will top Group D regardless of the outcome of the last round of matches.

Eguavoen has repeated the same starting lineup in his first two matches but could hand Africa Cup of Nations debuts to some of the fringe players in his squad tomorrow.

Eguavoen said at the pre-match press conference : "Yes, it is always good to qualify, we have done that with style.

"Expect few changes tomorrow because everybody that has come here is ready to play.

"I have always told them your chance will come but don't expect a massive change but there will be one or two".

Eguavoen will monitor Chidozie Awaziem at Tuesday's training session before deciding whether or not to include the
Alanyaspor defender in his matchday 23 against Guinea-Bissau.

"Awaziem was a bit ill and he's okay now. The sprain of the ankle also has been taken care of.

"It's a bit difficult to say he's going to be available for selection.

"He only trained yesterday, this evening he will also partake and then we will come out with the team sheet tomorrow you will see," added Eguavoen.
