Revealed – How Nigeria U20 Will Likely Line Up In First U20 WYC Game Against Qatar


The Nigeria U20 team will tomorrow play their first game at the U20 World Youth Championship in Poland against Qatar and takes a look at how the boys of coach Paul Aigbogun will line up in the game.


The coach will likely stick to the 4-3-3 formation used at the Africa U20 Cup of Nations even though the team now has different players from the ones that prosecuted the African championship where they finished 4th earlier this year.

In goal as first reported by this portal Olawale Oremade retains his spot as number one while the back four will be more of the same at the U20 Africa Cup of Nations, bar the inclusion of Mohammed Zulkifilu who is in for Mike Zarumma the right back who surprisingly didn’t make the squad for the tournament.

Igho Ogbu, Valentine Ozornwafor and captain Ikouwem Udoh complete the back four and in the midfield, it will be the trio of Tom Dele-Bashiru, Kingsley Michael and Nnamdi Ofoborh with Michael the most advanced of the trio as he will play ahead of Tom and Ofoborh who is the deepest among the trio.
