AFCON

2 players who should start for Nigeria in their next AFCON match and the players they should replace

The Nigerian Super Eagles will be hoping to maintain their good form in the ongoing African Cup Of Nations tournament when they play their upcoming matches, but there are some players who should be in the starting lineup for the team in order for them to perform better. Here are two players who should start for Nigeria in their next AFCON match, as well as the players who should replace them.

1 - Chidera Ejuke: This is a player who is always bringing more power to the team's attack whenever he is given the opportunity to feature; he has very good speed and is a constant threat to the opposing team's defenders whenever he is on the pitch.

He is expected to start for the Super Eagles against Guinea-Bissau in their next African Cup of Nations match. He will assist in opening up Guinea-defense Bissau's line, as they may wish to play a defensive game and contain the Super Eagles' players.

The CSKA Moscow winger should take over for Samuel Chukwueze because he is faster and makes better decisions than the Villarreal playmaker. He will undoubtedly make the team's attack more threatening and formidable.

2 - Tyrone Ebuehi: The young defender has yet to play in the African Cup Of Nations, but the coach should use him in the team's next match. He is capable of putting in a more solid performance in the team's right full-back position.

Ola Aina made a mistake yesterday that would have been more significant if the team had not scored three goals earlier in the game; he should be replaced in the right full-back position by Tyrone Ebuehi.

The Venezia young star is a faster player who can defend well and also provide support for the attackers, he is good at crossing the ball, and he certainly deserves a spot in the super eagles starting lineup.

Do you think Ola Aina should be replaced after causing a penalty in yesterday's game, in your opinion? Please share your thoughts with us.
