Aina Wins Battle For Left Back , Ogu Ahead Of Nwakali In Race To Start Algeria GameOwnGoal Nigeria


On loan Chelsea defender Ola Aina is favourite to start for Nigeria tomorrow against Algeria going by the various training session of the team.

Aina who made his debut for Nigeria against Zambia in Uyo as a substitute for regular left back Elderson Echiejile will most likely retain his spot despite his abilities to play as a right back.

Shehu Abdullahi is certain to retain his spot despite coach Gernot Rohr hinting at a possible debut for ADO Den Haag Tyronne Ebuehi against Algeria ‎two weeks ago.

The midfield of the team which has been decimated by injuries to vice captain Eddy Onazi and Rohr’s preferred deputy Mikel Agu is somehow settled as John Ogu has been very impressive.

Ogu is presently ahead of the likes of Kelechi Nwakali and Uche Agbo and will likely start in a midfield three of himself, Ogehenekaro Etebo and Wilfred Ndidi.
