Gernot Rohr, Super Eagles coach said he will bring a lot of changes to his team ahead of their final match against Madagascar.
The Nigeria team have secured a place in the second phase of the competition but needs a point to guarantee them the top spot on Sunday in order to meet a third-place side in the next round.
“It’s important to finish first of the group, it’s better to play a team in third than the second so we will do all to finish top,” Rohr told reporters at a pre-match news conference in the Mediterranean city.
“We have our scout watching a lot of games in Cairo. We have to prepare to play against a good team. It could be South Africa, DR Congo or maybe Cameroon. It will be a very tough match in the round of 16, but we’re not there yet and are focused on the game tomorrow.”

“Will I make changes? Yes, because I want to put everyone under pressure and have that competition in each position. We’ll see in the last training tonight which changes we will do,” he added.
“It will be an exciting match against a team that has a lot of offensive qualities. I think it will also be a ‘final’ in the group, the winner will be top, and that’s a big motivation for us.”
