Vincent Enyeama’s withdrawal leaves coach Sunday Oliseh with Wolves goalie,Carl Ikeme, and Ikechukwu Ezenwa of Sunshine Stars available for the crucial clash.

Nigeria began their 2017 AFCON qualification campaign on a winning note with a 2-0 success over Chad in June but currently occupy the second position due to an inferior goal difference to Egypt, who defeated Tanzania by three goals to nil.
