Super Eagles coach, Samson Siasia will have no choice but start with Dele Aiyenugba in goal as Nigeria plays Guinea on Saturday in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

With Vincent Enyeama dropped, it was a no brainer that Aiyenugba would start in goal.

Fengor Ogude will play in right full back with Chibuzor Okonkwo currently injured while Taye Taiwo (In pic), Efe Ambrose and Joseph Yobo will make up the defence.

Mikel Obi, Joel Obi will pair in central midfield while Chinedu Obasi and Obina Nsofor will operate from the flanks while the center of attack will have Ozasze Odemwingie and Emmanuel Emenike in what looks like a 4-2-4 formation.

On the substitute’s bench will be Austin Ejide, Ike Uche, Dele Adeleye, Ekigho Ehiosun, Elderson Echiejile, Ahmed and Brown Ideye.

A one zero win by Nigeria will see the Eagles qualify as group leaders for the Cup of Nations next year, but if Nigeria concedes a goal, the Eagles will then have to win by two clear goals to top the group.
