Stephen Keshi has made just one change from the team that played against South Africa, with captain Vincent Enyeama returning to the starting eleven for Sudan.

Austin Ejide was both goalkeeper and stand in captain for that encounter, but has now given way to Enyeama as the Nigerians March out for what is a must win game against their hosts.

With just one point from their opening two games, the defending champions cannot afford a slip up in Khartoum, and Keshi's line up reflects that mindset, starting with his strongest possible lineup.

Upfront, Emmanuel Emenike is flanked by Ahmed Musa and home boy Gbolahan Salami.

In midfield, Nosa Igiebor joins Ogenyi Onazi and Mikel Obi, while the back four remains as is, with Efe Ambrose, Elderson Echiejile, Kenneth Omeruo and Godfrey Oboabona.
