The Super Eagles of Nigeria will confront the Algerian B team on Saturday in a friendly matchup in Constantine, where they will be seeking to build on a remarkable 10-0 win over Sao Tome & Principe in their last game.
Nigeria’s new manager, José Santos Peseiro has agreed that the Super Eagles have a training match against Algeria’s ‘B’ squad on Saturday in a bid to see several new and returning players in action, ahead of the official game against the Desert Foxes (Algeria’s ‘A’ team) on Tuesday night in Oran.
The latest report from the Super Eagles training in Constantine has suggested that Wilfred Nididi has sustained an injury that will keep him out of the two warm-up games.
The Leicester City midfielder is expected to depart from the training camp for England very soon for proper treatment.
Super Eagles’ possible starting lineup vs Algerian B team:
Uzoho: Bassey, Akpoguma, Ekong, Aina, Onyedika, Ejuke, Iwobi, Moses, Onyeka, and Dessers.
The training game between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Algerian B team is expected to kick off at exactly 5:30 PM on Friday, at Chahid Hamlaoui Stadium in Constantine, Algeria.
