Ahead of Nigeria's much anticipated friendly match against Algeria today in Austria, a number of online media platforms have released what they believe the starting line up will be.
If the list is to be believed, Paul Onuachu has received the nod ahead of his club-mate Cyriel Dessers to spearhead the Super Eagles attack. His inaugural game for Nigeria was against another North African powerhouse where stunned everyone with with a deft finish in just 5 minutes.
The flanks are made up of the SAS duo (Samuel Chukwueze and Samuel Kalu) whilst the midfield diamond comprises of Iwobi, Onyeka and Ajayi (who replaces Ndidi in a role to which he is familiar with in the English Championship) .
Current fan-favourite Ebuehi returns to the right full back role since 2018 world cup whilst future fan-favourite Sanusi in instated on the left.
The iconic Oyinbo wall of Ekong and Ajayi returns to the heart of defence with young Okoye given the chance to prove his worth in goal.
Afrofooty cannot independently verify this list at this time.

GK – Maduka Okoye RWB – Tyronne Ebuehi LWB – Sanusi Zaidu CB – Leon Balogun CB – Wlliams Troost Ekong DMF – Semi Ajayi AMF – Frank Onyeka AMF – Alex Iwobi RFW – Samuel Chukuweze LWF – Samuel Kalu CF – Paul Onuachu
