Kenneth Omeruo looked sharp in his first training session with the Super Eagles on Wednesday and could return to the starting line-up.

Brown Ideye, who started on the bench against Ethiopia in Addis Ababa, also looked in line to return to the starting line up, especially with Nnamdi Oduamadi doubtful with illness.

Omeruo has been out since suffering a shoulder injury at the Confederations Cup in Brazil and only played his first match with the Chelsea Under-21 team last week.

But the defender kept pace with the rest of the squad, and while he had one or two moments of being a little off the pace against Bright Dike, posted an overall satisfactory performance.

Ideye has also shaken off the groin problem that kept him side-lined for 10 days at Dinamo Kyiv and looked equally dangerous as he renewed his partnership with Emmanuel Emenike.

The rest of the team is not expected to change much on Saturday.

LIKELY LINE-UP:

Enyeama – Efe, Echiejile, Oboabona, Omeruo, Onazi, Mikel, Moses, Musa, Ideye, Emenike
