Head Coach of the Nigeria Under-23s Samson Siasia has named his starting lineup for tonight’s Rio 2016 semi-final game against Germany with Akwa United’s Ndifreke Udo replacing the suspended Azubuike Okechukwu, who is out due to accumulative bookings.
Top scorer Ogenekaro Etebo misses out after failing to recover from the hamstring injury that ruled him out of the quarter final clash. His absence means Aminu Umar, scorer of Nigeria’s second goal against Denmark in the quarter finals keeps his spot in the starting lineup.
Emmanuel Daniel (GK)
