Super Eagles boss Gernot Rohr is set to restore the quartet of captain Ahmed Musa, Kelechi Iheanacho, Moses Simon and Kenneth Omeruo to his starting XI against Tunisia’s Carthage Eagles tonight.
The three-time African champions performed below-par against current African champions Algeria last Friday.
Reports from the team’s base in Austria revealed that the Franco-German tactician has opted for experience with only shot-stopper Maduka Okoye and FC Porto left-back Zaidu Sanusi the “new boys” to start.

The pair were rewarded for their decent outings against the Desert Foxes on Friday night.
Hoffenheim ace Kevin Akpoguma will replace Tyronne Ebuehi after he came on for the same player midway into the second half against Algeria.
On the other hand, Leganes ace Omeruo will step in for William Ekong in the heart of the defence alongside Leon Balogun.

Ekong has been excused from the team’s camp for Watford’s English Championship game on Friday.
West Brom’s Semi Ajayi keeps his place as the only defensive midfielder, while Iheanacho will play behind Ahmed Musa in attack, with the pair of Moses Simon and Samuel Chukwueze will operate from the wings.
Nigeria starting XI vs Tunisia: Maduka Okoye – Zaidu Sanusi, Kevin Akpoguma, Kenneth Omeruo, Leon Balogun – Semi Ajayi – Alex Iwobi, Samuel Chukwueze, Moses Simon, Kelechi Iheanacho – Ahmed Musa
