Luxembourg vs Nigeria Team News
Coach Luc Holtz will count on a number of young and talented players for the Nigeria friendly. 16-year-old attacker Vincent Thill made the squad, with Tim Hall earning his first-time call-up. As reports in Luxembourg suggest, goalkeeper Anthony Moris is likely to start from the bench.
Kelechi Iheanacho came as a substitute and scored the winning goal against Mali and he is likely to be recalled to the starting line-up. Yusuf Wilfred Ndidi returns to contention after missing the Mali game due to club commitments. Victor Moses remains on the sidelines with injury, whilst Efe Ambrose has been left out of the squad. Chidozie Awaziem is unlikely to be risked. John Obi Mikel and Ahmed Musa are both out of contention.
Injured: Victor Moses, Chidozie Awaziem
- Luxembourg are on a three-game losing run ahead of the Nigeria game
- Luc Holtz’s men failed to score in previous three matches
- Under 2.5 goals were scored in each of Nigeria’s last five games
- Nigeria and Luxembourg take on each other for the first time ever on the international stage
- Watford striker Odion Ighalo has netted just two goals for the Nigeria national team to date
Luxembourg vs Nigeria Prediction
Nigeria showed character in the 1-0 win over Mali on Friday evening, with Iheanacho scoring the winner in the dying minutes of the match. The team’s fresh confidence will be tested in Tuesday’s friendly with Luxembourg and seeing that Luc Holtz is likely to mix the squad against Nigeria, away win appears on the cards. Nigeria are more of a team than Luxembourg and they are likely to record a routine win over the minnows.
