Two consecutive 1-1 draws against Lesotho and Zimbabwe have left Nigeria’s qualification hopes hanging in the balance.

Finidi is probably going to stay with Stanley Nwabali, who proved to be a hero for the Super Eagles during the AFCON campaign, even with the return of the in-form Maduka Okoye.

Full Lineup: Nwabali (GK); Osayi-Samuek, Ajayi, Tanimu, Bassey; Ndidi, Onyedika; Lookman, Iwobi, Chukwueze; Boniface

To avoid another setback, the team will need to be more clinical against South Africa. A loss would severely damage their qualification chances.
