Super Eagles possible Line up against Serbia based on Gernot Rohr decision last night

Super eagles  manager Gernot Rohr has made up his mind on the eleven players that will be named in the starting line-up for Tuesday night's pre-World Cup friendly against Serbia, based on the team's final workout on Monday.

Bursaspor defender Abdullahi Shehu has failed a fitness test and is unlikely to be involved against the Serbians, and the same goes for Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho and Las Palmas midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo.

The trio were involved in the warmup and less strenuous exercises with the squad but were later separated to play tennis as the Team A and Team B were sweating it on the pitch. 

The practice game ended 1-0, with Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi scoring for the Team A.

Everything indicates that Deportivo de La Coruña goalkeeper Francis Uzoho will start in goal against Serbia ahead of Enyimba's Ikechukwu Ezenwa as he played for Team A in the training session.

Fit again ADO Den Haag star Tyronne Ebuehi will replace Abdullahi Shehu at right-back, while Troost-Ekong, Leon Balogun and Brian Idowu have kept their places in the starting line-up.

Eddy Onazi played for the Team A as a defensive midfielder with Wilfred Ndidi and Joel Obi playing slightly ahead of him.

Alex Iwobi and Victor Moses played from the flanks; Ahmed Musa replaced Odion Ighalo as the top striker. 

Rohr is expected to deploy a 4-3-3 formation against Serbia.
