Team News:
Nigeria will be looking to maintain their perfect start to qualification for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations when they face off against Sierra Leone in Friday's Group L clash.

In contrast, the visitors sit bottom of the group after picking up just one point from six on offer during the first matches of qualification last year.
Nigeria
Leicester City's Wilfred Ndidi will be waiting a little while longer to score his first goal for Nigeria as he misses out here with an adductor injury, but his Foxes teammate Kelechi Iheanacho is in the squad and ready for action.

Fellow Premier League players Alex Iwobi and Semi Ajayi have also made the cut, while Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo is also back in the fold after missing last month's friendlies.

However, Ligue 1 attackers Samuel Kalu and Moses Simon are both on the treatment table and have not been included, while goalkeeper Sebastian Osigwe is the only uncapped player called up by Rohr.
Nigeria possible starting lineup:
Akpeyi; Aina, Balogun, Troost-Ekong, Sanusi; Ajayi, Etebo, Aribo; Chukwueze, Osimhen, Iwobi
Nigeria Africa Cup of Nations qualifying form: WW
Nigeria form (all competitions): DWWWLD

Sierra Leone
Sierra Leone will welcome Kei Kamara back to the squad after the 36-year-old reversed his decision to retire, and the Minnesota United man is set to start up top.

On another positive note, captain Umaru Bangura - who has recently recovered from COVID-19 - has shrugged off concerns over his fitness to make himself available for Friday's clash.
Sierra Leone possible starting lineup:
M. Kamara; Kakay, Bangura, Sesay, Wright; J. Kamara, Strasser; Bundu, Quee, Turay; K. Kamara
Sierra Leone Africa Cup of Nations qualifying form: DL
Sierra Leone form (all competitions): LWDLLL

Prediction: Nigeria 3-0 Sierra Leone
