Babatunde Michael is set for his second start in as many matches, as coach Stephen Keshi opts to keep faith with the Volyn Lutsk left-winger ahead of Chelsea’s Victor Moses. Skipper Joseph Yobo, who the NFF says has about two caps to reach his century, will start ahead of the returning Godfrey Oboabona.
