Report: Ighalo to start against Libya


Odion Ighalo will reportedly start Nigeria’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying clash against Libya on Saturday in an attack-minded XI expected to named by coach Gernot Rohr.

The Changchun Yatai striker will feature from the off, on the back of his stellar form for his Chinese Super League club.
According to reports from the camp of the team, Wilfred Ndidi has also been handed a place in central midfield.
Ogenyi Onazi and Ahmed Musa will also start, it is claimed.
Elsewhere, Francis Uzoho, will remain in goal, behind the defensive quartet of Leon Balogun, William Troost Ekong, Brian Idowu and Shehu Abdullahi.
Samuel Kalu will likely continue to operate in the engine room, while opposition side Libya are going to stick with the same XI that earned a 0-0 draw in South Africa last month.
