Sports Nigeria's starting 11 vs South Africa

Coach Stephen Keshi has made two changes to his starting line-up that will play against South Africa this evening.

In midfield, Keshi brought in Raheem Lawal for the injured Hope Akpan who suffered a dislocated shoulder in Nigeria's last match against Congo in Pointe Noire.

Following his impressive display in the heart of defence for Nigeria in the last game against Congo, Azubuike Egwueke will partner the returning Kenneth Omeruo in defence following the suspension of Godfrey Oboabona for this tie.

The Rizespor defender is serving a one-match suspension for two yellow cards.

Keshi also retained the duo of Ikechukwu Uche and Emmanuel Emenike in attack, with the team needing maximum points to be able to qualify for the 2015 African Nations Cup tournament.

Starting Eleven:
Vincent Enyeama, Efe Ambrose,Kenneth Omeruo, Azubuike Egwueke, Juwon Oshaniwan, Ogenyi Onazi,Raheem Lawal,John Obi Mikel, Ahmed Musa, Ikechukwu Uche and Emmanuel Emenike.
