NIG VS CAR: 3 Super Eagles Players Who Trained Hard But Might Not Start Today's Game.

1. Francis Uzoho.

The 22 year old is one of the best young goalkeepers in the Super Eagles set up. He plays for AC Omonia in Cyprus and this season, he's been quite good for his club side hence the call up from Genot Rohr. Ahead of today's game against Central African Republic, Uzoho looked bright and hardworking in training but the chances of him starting the game is pretty slim. The coach could prefer to go with Maduka Okoye in the Super Eagles goals but that doesn't take anything away from Uzoho's brilliance in training this week.

2. Jamilu Collins.

The Paderborn of Germany defender has been decent each time he's played for his club side this season. His form earned him a call up to the Super Eagles once again but he's likely to start from the bench in today's game. The options Rohr has at fullback is impressive, with Ola Aina and Chidozie Awaziem guaranteed starters for the eagles. In training, Collins have looked superb and is definitely making a case for himself this international break.

3. Paul Onuachu.

The tall striker have been in goalscoring form this season for his club in Belgium. Paul have scored more than 7 goals for his club side in all competitions and will be involved for the Super Eagles in this international break games. Ahead of the game against Central African Republic, Paul Onuachu have looked bright in training. He is hardworking and is a forward who likes to help the team build up attacks. Unfortunately for him, Victor Osimhen is in fantastic form at the moment and so is Kelechi Iheanacho. Onuachu's chances of starting today's game is pretty slim but he could come on as a substitute in the second half.
