Checkout 3 Players Who Might Make Their Super Eagles Debut Tomorrow (Photos)

Tomorrow Nigeria will face Cape Verde for their second match of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers and some players might put on the green and white jersey for the first time.

Nigeria is currently top Group C after a 2-0 victory over Liberia and in Lagos on Friday and will be hoping to make it two wins out of two despite having a shortage of players.

Due to UK- restriction guidelines, the Super Eagles will be without six key players. Ndidi, Iwobi, Iheanacho, Aribo, Ekong, Balogun, Onyeka, Aina & Etebo have all been excused from the team.

At the moment Gernot Rohr has a limited squad. Only 21 of the 30 players initially invited would be battling the Cape Verdeans. Due to the absence of a lot of key players, Rohr would have to dish out a different team and we might see some new faces on the pitch.

Here are 3 players who might make their international debut tomorrow.

Innocent Bonke

Bonke is a defensive midfielder who plays for Swedish club FF Malmo.

The absence of Ndidi & Etebo gives him a high probability of making his first appearance for Nigeria.

Kingsley Micheal

22-year-old Kingsley Micheal has represented Nigeria at U-17 levels but not at the senior level.

He plays for Serie A club Bologna and is a centre midfielder.

Adekunle Adeleke

Adeleke is the only home-based player in the Super Eagles camp. He is a defender and plays for Umuahia based club Abia Warriors in the NPFL.

He has represented Nigeria with the home-based Eagles but not the main team.

Which of these three players do you wish to see play tommorow?
