TEAM NEWS: Brown Ideye and Ogenyi Onazi return for Nigeria against Cote D'Ivoire

The Super Eagles have a slightly changed line up against the Elephants for Sunday's crucial quarter final encounter in Rustenburg

Ideye Brown and Ogenyi Onazi will start for Nigeria in Sunday’s Africa Cup of Nations quarter final game against Cote D’Ivoire in Rustenburg.

While Dynamo Kiev's Brown replaces Ikechukwu Uche who started against Ethiopia in the striking zone, Lazio's Onazi comes on for suspended Fegor Ofude.

Apart from these two players, the team from the game against Ethiopia remains much the same and will play in Stephen Keshi’s favoured 4-3-3 formation.


Enyeama; Ambrose, Omeruo, Oboabona, Echiejile; Onazi, Mikel, Mba; Moses, Emenike, Brown
