Nigeria will take in the United States of America in the second group D match with the hope of qualifying for the second round of the FIFA under 20 World Cup in Poland with coach Paul Aigbogun making just two changes to the team, one in the defense and the other in the attack.

Defender Olasunkanmi Aliyu and Tijani Muhammed are not in the starting line up for the clash against the USA, with Akor Jerome Adams and Aliu Salawudeed, who scored the fourth goal in the four-nil thumping of Asian side Qatar, replacing both players.

The other players kept their place in the team, including the other three goalscorers, Manchester City midfielder, who scored the third goal Tom Dele-Bashiru, Henry Offia and Maxwell Effiom, who scored the opening match in the Qatar victory.

Nigeria have never won the under 20 FIFA World Cup before and have set out to break the jinx, as the tournament in the only underaged football tournament the country are yet to win. A win against the Unig=ted States of America will send them in to the next round with one match left to play.
