The Flying Eagles coach Paul Aigbogun has not changed his squad for the FIFA U-20 World Cup second round match against Senegal..

Success Makanjuola, so effective in their last group match against Ukraine, keeps his spot.

He will have Kingsley Michael for support, alongside Okon Aniekeme.

It is still not clear if Tom Dele-Bashiru will come into the match at some point, following his injury against the United States last Monday.

There was no room for right-winger Henry Offia in the first eleven as he has been dropped to the bench for the second match in a row.

A win will send Nigeria to the quarter-finals for the first time since 2007.
