The head coach of the Super Eagles, Jose Peseiro, is likely to make three changes to his starting XI against Ivory Coast today.

The Super Eagles are looking to pick up their first win at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations on Thursday evening.

The three-time African champions were held to a 1-1 draw by Equatorial Guinea last weekend.

DAILY POST reports that Peseiro could ring at least three changes as he seeks to pick up three points against the hosts.

Sources in Abidjan claim Calvin Bassey, Joe Aribo and Samuel Chukwueze will start the match.

Bassey can play in central defence and as a left-back, while Joe Aribo could come in for the unfit Alhassan Yusuf. Chukwueze could be deployed from the right of attack in place of Moses Simon, who endured a poor outing on Sunday.

Kick off for the game is 6pm WAT.
