Left-back Taye Taiwo is available for Nigeria despite stubbing his toe in the defeat to Argentina. Lars Lagerback could opt to recall winger Peter Odemwingie, who surprisingly started on the bench on Saturday.
Centre-back Sotirios Kyrgiakos was a shock omission for Greece’s opening game but should return against the Super Eagles.
Defender Vangelis Moras is also available after recovering from injury. Forward Dimitrios Salpingidis could also feature after impressing off the bench against the Koreans.

Having seen Nigeria indebted to keeper Vincent Enyeama for keeping the score down against Argentina one wonders if Greece will have anything like the firepower to register a goal in this Bloemfontein encounter. Otto Rehhagel are a fairly poor prospect and only managed two shots on target against South Korea so one imagines that this game is up for grabs if Lars Lagerbeck can get his side firing on all cylinders.
