Please remove Uche Agbo from the lineup. He is just warming the seat for Kevin Akpoguma, who should make the WC squad, so no need to give him any playing time.
Uzoho will not start against Algeria. Too crucial a match to start a newbie.
Also, Nwakaeme needs to be given a run out as a sub for Ighalo. Iheanacho can come in as a sub later in the game.

Your line up against Algeria will chop serious cane.

Abeg hot shot Uzoho needs to get some PT, we have seen enough of Akpeyi shaking in between the sticks.

My understanding is that talks are at a very advanced stage.
No need testing someone you're gonna drop, who is basically warming the seat for someone else.
That will amount to a waste of opportunity for the likes of Awaziem and Troost Ekong who need to get more reps before the WC.

Those players are hungry to stake a place in the team. I doubt they will chop serious cane.

Musa will likely get some game time. Might be his last chance to prove his value since he's not seeing any club action.

Brian Idowu is a versatile player who needs to be looked out, not sure why Uche Agbo is taking up space.

Nwakaeme is primarily a wide player, so not sure he'll be an appropriate sub for Ighalo...
When Nwakaeme drifts in and/or play centrally for Bar Sheba, he has been less effective than out wide.

The competition for Nwakaeme on the flanks is very tight: Victor Moses, Alex Iwobi, Simon Moses and now Henry Onyekuru. He has played second fiddle to the first 3 listed all through the qualification campaign.
Cannot wager that he will win a straight shoot out btw him and Onyekuru - so that kinda puts him in a pickle.
I believe his best shot is as a CF.
