Flying Eagles in “must-win” game

Coach of Nigeria's Flying Eagles, John Obuh (pictured left), has rung several changes to his starting XI against Gambia in a must-win African Youth Championship match on Sunday.

Olympic international Emmanuel Anyanwu will make his first start in the AYC at right back for Terna Suswan to move to left back in place of Mohammed Aliyu.

Also, to start versus the impressive Gambians are striker Olanrewaju Kayode and skipper Ramon Azeez.

Nigeria need an outright win against Gambia in their final group match at the Africa Youth Championships to have a realistic chance of playing in the World Youth championships later this year.
