Keshi names usual suspects for Malawi
Nigeria head coach, Stephen Keshi has picked the same starting side that faced Namibia in a 2014 Fifa World Cup qualifying in Calabar last Sunday against Malawi.
The first 11 against Namibia will face Malawi's Flames on Matchday 2 of the World Cup qualification in Blantyre this Saturday.
SuperSport.com has been informed that Keshi is not keen on altering the squad that faced Namibia as he wants to avoid defeat in the Southern African nation.
Vincent Enyeama retains his place in goal and will captain the side.
Godfrey Oboabona, Juwon Oshaniwa, Azubuike Egwuekwe and Efe Ambrose are to continue in a four-man defence.
Nigeria's starting line-up against Malawi is completed with Gabriel Reuben, Obiora Nwankwo, Ejike Uzoenyi, Victor Moses, John Utaka and Ikechukwu Uche.
Papa Idris, Elderson Echiejile, Ahmed Musa, Henry Uche, Sone Aluko and Uche Kalu are all in contention to feature in the game as substitutes.
The Super Eagles go into the game against the Flames as Group F leaders on three points.
