According to leaks gathered by owngoalnigeria.com interim manager of the Super Eagles Samson Siasia is planning on dropping the trio of Moses Simon,Stanley Amuzie and Kelechi Iheanacho from his starting line up against Egypt in tomorrow’s must win AFCON 2017 qualifiers.
While a decision have been reached on dropping Kelechi Iheanacho following his poor peformance against Egypt, the duo of Moses Simon and Stanley Amuzie will mostly likely not be in the starting line up on the ground of experience.
We gathered the coach is going for experience as he expects the atmosphere to be fully charged at the Borg El Arab stadium in Alexandria which might be too much for the young players to take.
Nigeria know only a victory in Alexandria can guarantee them a spot in next year AFCON and as such are not taking anything for granted regarding the game.
The team will arrive Egypt this afternoon and have their first session on the pitch later in the evening.
