Bright Osayi-Samuel has replaced injured Zaidu Sanusi in the line-up for the eagerly awaited Africa Cup of Nations Semifinal clash between Nigeria and South Africa at the Stade de la Paix in Bouake.
The introduction of Osayi-Samuel will see Ola Aina move to the left-back position while the pacy Osayi-Samuel will take his place at right back and would be hoping to influence the game from the wings.
Aside from Zaidu missing the encounter, other starters retain their place in the competition. Stanley Nwabali keeps his place between the sticks while captain William Troost-Ekong, Calvin Bassey, Ola Aina, and Semi Ajayi are in defense.
Frank Onyeka and Alex Iwobi will be in midfield while Nigeria’s most in-form players Ademola Lookman and Moses Simon will play from the wings flanking the continent’s best player, Victor Osimhen.
