Gernot Rohr’s options could be significantly limited for Nigeria’s warm-up game against Cameroon on 4th June.

The Super Eagles boss is short of options after majority of first teamers withdrew from the game.

The likes of Terem Moffi, Abraham Marcus and Peter Olayinka will also be keen to show what they can do given the high level of competition for places up front.

Marcus could very well earn his first cap for the national team this week as Rohr looks to run the rule over the Feirense man, while Lorient forward Moffi – could start upfront.

A shuffled defence may also see Valentine Ozornwafor and Chidozie Awaziem could be handed opportunities to impress, while Jamilu Collins could complete the back four.

Wilfred Ndidi and Oghenekaro Etebo will be midfield shoo-ins against Cameroon.

Alex Iwobi will aim to keep his place in the number 10 role as Kelechi Iheanacho provide support out wide, but Rohr has a huge call to make at the forefront of the attack.

Nigeria possible starting lineup: Maduka Okoye, Chidozie Awaziem, William Troost-Ekong, Valentine Ozornwafor, Jamilu Collins, Wilfred Ndidi, Oghenekaro Etebo, Alex Iwobi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Terem Moffi, Peter Olayinka
