Nigeria U20 coach names strong starting line up against Ghana

Wikki Tourists striker Usman Hassan Sale will partner Taiwo Awoniyi in the Flying Eagles attack in today’s AYC semifinal against Ghana.

The 19-year-old Hassan started last weekend’s final Group A game against Cote d’Ivoire in Mbour from midfield.

He has been considered ahead of Alhassan Ibrahim ‘Muazam’.

Enugu Rangers midfielder Obinna Nwobodo has again been picked ahead of Bernard Bulbwa on the right side of midfield.

First-choice goalkeeper Joshua Enaholo has reclaimed his place in the starting XI and so too central defender Izu Omego, who was not risked for the Cote d’Ivoire match as he was on a booking.

Ifeanyi Matthew will also return to play behind the two strikers after he skipped the team’s last game following an injury concern.
