Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr is keeping faith with the same starting eleven he has used in the last two 2018 world cup qualifying matches, naming an unchanged team to face Zambia.

There were concerns over who will start in goal for the Super Eagles, after Rohr in press conference on Thursday refused to state if Ikechukwu Ezenwa will be starting the game.

However, the Ifeanyi Ubah FC player is retaining his place in the starting line up, with the other 10 outfield players who started against Cameroon also starting today.

Here is the starting 11 to face the Chipolopolo of Zambia: Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Shehu Abdullahi, Elderson Echiejile, Leon Balogun, William Troost-Ekong; Wilfred Ndidi, Ogenyi Onazi, John Obi Mikel (captain); Victor Moses, Odion Ighalo, Simon Moses.
