Super Eagles head coach, Finidi George, has made three changes to his starting line-up for tonight’s 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Benin Republic.

Stanley Nwabali from Chippa United retains his spot in goal after his impressive performance in last Friday’s 1-1 draw with South Africa.

Finidi has chosen to keep the same backline, consisting of Bright Osayi-Samuel, Semi Ajayi, Benjamin Tanimu, and Calvin Bassey. In midfield, Fisayo Dele-Bashiru will be replaced by Brentford’s Frank Onyeka.

Captain Wilfred Ndidi and Alex Iwobi will continue to hold their positions.

Leading the attack will be OGC Nice star Terem Moffi, with Paul Onuachu starting on the bench. Samuel Chukwueze has been preferred over Kelechi Iheanacho, and Ademola Lookman also features in the starting line-up.
