Rohr rings three changes to Eagles starting XI, Moses to function at wing back

Francis Uzoho has kept his place in the Nigeria starting XI against Iceland at the Volgograd Arena, but Gernot Rohr does make three changes from the team that lost to Gernot Rohr.

The Super Eagles will line up in a 3-5-2 formation in the crucial Group D FIFA World Cup battle on Friday. Kickoff is at 4pm Nigerian Time.

Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo plays at three-man defence with Leon Balogun and William Troost-Ekong, Ahmed Musa comes in for Odion Ighalo, with Victor Moses moving back into the right wing back.

Despite his disappointing performances so far, John Obi Mikel starts at attacking midfield with Wilfred Ndidi and Oghenekaro Etebo, whilst Bryan Idowu also retains his place from the loss to Croatia in Kaliningrad.

Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho completes the line up.
