Rohr set to name unchanged Nigeria team vs. Libya

If it's not broken, don't fix it.

With barely enough time for rest and recuperation between Saturday's game in Uyo, five hours flight to Tunisia and the reverse fixture on Tuesday, Gernot Rohr is not looking to shake up his Nigeria team.

The German is expected to name essentially the same side which started and hammered the Libyans 4-0 over the weekend, bar one enforced change.

Shehu Abdullahi, who suffered a muscle injury and did not travel with the squad, will be replaced in the starting eleven by Ola Aina, the man who came on for him when he was stretchered off after 18 minutes.

The Super Eagles climbed to second on the log with that victory on Saturday and now need at least a point from Tuesday's game to stay ahead of the Libyans as the race for qualification enters its final stretch next month.

Kickoff is at 7pm local time (7pm Nigeria time) at the Stade Taieb Mhiri in the Tunisian city of Sfax.

PROJECTED LINEUP: Uzoho, Aina, Jamilu, Troost-Ekong, Balogun; Etebo, Ndidi, Iwobi; Musa, Kalu, Ighalo
