Nigeria’s starting XI for their World Cup qualifying game against Zimbabwe is out. Coach of the national team Jose Peseiro is going for a 4-3-3 formation in this game.

The Portuguese has maintained his faith in Francis Uzoho while the likes of Ola Aina and Bruno Onyemaechi will operate from the right-back and left-back positions.
