Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi sticks with the squad that upset their West African neighbours Ivory Coast on Sunday.
“We are happy to stick with the team that did so well against Ivory Coast,” he explained.
Keshi, who was sacked by Mali in 2010, has a fully-fit squad to choose from.
There is no place in the starting line-up for midfielder Fegor Ogude who is available after a one-match suspension.
Expectations of a third trophy, following successes in 1980 and 1994,
have been increased by their last-eight win against tournament
favourites Ivory Coast.
Nigeria XI vs Mali: (4-3-3) – Enyeama; Echeijile, Ambrose, Oboabona, Omeruo; Onazi, Mikel, Mba; Moses, Emenike, Ideye.
