Nigeria vs Sudan Team News

Nigeria will face the Eastern African nation without the services of former Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo who got injured in the 79th minute against Egypt. In his absence, Semi Ajayi is expected to slot in and fill the position at the heart of the defence.

Sudan might make changes, especially in the attacking department as they have struggled to get goals. Wali Al-Din Khidr, Muhammad Abdul Rahman, and Yasin Hamed led the attacks against Guinea-Bissau in the 0-0 draw, but Al-Gozoli Nooh could be considered for a starting role up front, replacing one of the three from the opener.
