Alex Iwobi, Leon Balogun and Oghenekaro Etebo have been named to start for the Super Eagles of Nigeria against Sierra Leone  in Freetown.

The Arsenal forward is seen as a replacement for injured Victor Osimhen, who scored in the 4-4 draw against Sierra Leone at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City, last Friday.

A draw is all the Super Eagles need to to qualify for the 2022 AFCON after Benin Republic played a goalless draw against Lesotho earlier today
