The skipper of the side, Simon Cletus, Destiny Samuel and Abdulmuiz Oladimeji occupied the midfield while Rapha Adam led the attack with the duo of Imrana Muhammad and Ibrahim Abdulganiyu as wide forwards.

Chances were at premium for both sides in the game with Nigeria's sight at goal arriving in the 24th minute when Cletus found Oladimeji who wasted the glit-edge chance.
