Super Eagles boss Jose Peseiro has rang the changes as Nigeria lineup a surprise team against Zimbabwe in crucial World Cup qualifying match.

The Super Eagles lineup for the crucial World Cup qualifying game against Zimbabwe is out and with it comes a number of surprises.

Coach Jose Peseiro has reacted to the disappointing draw at home to Lesotho by lining up with six new players for this clash, including one debutant.

Goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho, both centre backs Semi Ajayi who scored in the last game and Calvin Bassey and midfielders Frank Onyeka and Alex Iwobi are the only players to retain their place in the starting XI.

Pesiero makes six changes to the Super Eagles lineup

Bruno Onyemaechi is reintroduced, taking the place of Jamilu Collins who started against Lesotho at left back while Ola Aina replaces Bright Osayi-Samuel at right back.

Joe Aribo replaces Kelechi Iheanacho but it appears the Southampton man will play as a number 10 rather than on the right wing like Iheanacho did on Thursday.

Moses Simon returns to the side as the captain for the day, replacing Ademola Lookman on the left wing while Nathan Tella gets to make his debut out on the right wing.

Terem Moffi starts as the lone striker, replacing Victor Boniface and carrying the goalscoring responsibility for Nigeria in what is a must-win game in Rwanda.
