The lineup for the Nigeria match today against Sudan has been made known to Newsmen.
Ejes Gist News exclusively gathered that coach Austine Eguavoen has decided to switch formation from the 4-2-3-1 the team played against Egypt where they won 1-0 to a more attacking formation.
The team per what we gathered will play 4-2-4 with the emphasis on going all out to attack with Sudan expected to approach the game with a low defensive block to frustrate Nigeria.
Same team like the one that played Egypt will be used for the game that starts by 5pm Nigerian team and a win for the Nigerian team will see them through to the next round of the tournament which is the round of 16.
Moses Simon will start on the left with Samuel Chukwueze retaining his position on the right. The attack will be the duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Taiwo Awoniyi.

Team news for Nigeria Vs Sudan Match
Nigeria will be without former Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo, who was stretchered off the field in the 79th minute against Egypt last time out due to an injury.
Semi Ajayi, who plays for West Bromwich Albion in the Championship, should replace him in the starting lineup and form a defensive partnership with William Troost-Ekong.
Following his winner against the Pharaohs, Iheanacho now has four goals for club and country, and we expect the Leicester City midfielder to lead the attack alongside Taiwo Awoniyi, who is 24 years old.
Joe Aribo of Rangers caught the eye as he turned on the style in the middle of the park, and we expect the 25-year-old to keep his place in the Super Eagles’ midfield pivot alongside Wilfred Ndidi of Leicester City.
Sudan have now failed to score in any of their last six games since putting two past Guinea back in October, and we expect Tia to make some changes in attack following Tuesday’s goalless draw with Guinea-Bissau.
Al-Merrikh forward Al-Gozoli Nooh is one of the few players vying for a starting spot, and he could replace Yasin Hamed, who struggled to make an impact last time out before being substituted in the 66th minute.
Mustafa Elfadni, Salaheldin Nemer, Mustafa Karshoum, and Mazin Mohamedein are expected to start in defense. Shielding Abou, who made a sensational 82nd-minute penalty save to deny Pele against the Djurtus.
Although the Super Eagles’ attacking line impressed, captain Ahmed Musa may get a chance to play. Indeed, keeping players fresh ahead of the knockout rounds is critical in tournament football, and they may be able to afford to rotate.
Sudan is not expected to undergo any significant changes.
Nigeria possible starting lineup:
Okoye; Aina, Troost-Ekong, Ajayi, Sanusi; Aribo, Ndidi; Chukweze, Iheanacho, Simon; Awoniyi
Sudan possible starting lineup:
Abou; Elfadni, Nemer, Karshoum, Mohamedein; G Omer, Khidir, Al-Rasheed, A Omer; Nooh, Abdelrahman
Nigeria may not have as much open space against Sudan, but their attack appears to be among the best in the competition.
Ejes Gist News Predicts Nigeria to win 2-0.
