Mainz 05 defender Leon Balogun has been given the all clear to feature for Nigeria today against Serbia in another friendly game lined up to help both teams prepare for the World Cup in Russia.
Balogun went out of the game against Poland injured, but took part in full training with the rest of the squad and was named tentatively in the starting line up subject to a late fitness test.
However he has now been given the all clear to continue his “Oyibo Wall” defence partnership with William Troost-Ekong, while Kenneth Omeruo who was placed on standby incase Balogun fails to make it for the game drops to the bench.
Here is a breakdown of how the Super Eagles will line up today in a 4-3-3 formation, an upgrade on the initial line up published by this portal earlier in the day in our usual style of dropping the Eagles line up hours to the game.
