Nigeria will be without first choice goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie in the opening match of the Women Africa Cup of Nations.
She is suspended for receiving yellow cards in different matches of the qualifying series: against Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire.
Israel-based Tochukwu Oluehi could be between the sticks for the Super Falcons against the Banyana on Monday night.
The Paris FC goalkeeper became the team’s first choice after a decent outing at the 2019 FIFA Women World Cup in France.
Her absence is due to the accumulation of caution cards she received during the competition qualifiers against the Black Queens of Ghana and Ivory Coast.
Nnadozid is expected to be back in the team for the two remaining group games against Botswana and Burundi.
