Nigeria will ruthlessly attack Bosnia-Herzegovina in tonight’s crucial Brazil 2014 World Cup clash at the Arena Pantanal in Cuiaba.

This is clear from the Super Eagles start list just released by Coach Stephen Keshi through team Media Officer Ben Alaiya.

For the first time, Keshi is starting Osaze Odemwingie and Emmanuel Emenike with a view to shooting down the World Cup debutants. Old war horse, skipper Joseph Yobo is being thrown into the battle from kick-off, while Babatunde Michael makes his World Cup debut.  

Keshi and his wards have insisted the team will put up a much more improved display than they did against Iran in the first group game, fully aware that nothing but the three points will be good enough if they are to have any chance of advancing to the second round.

The Super Eagles start list against Bosnia-Hezergovina in Cuiaba tonight is as follows: Vincent Enyeama, Joseph Yobo (c), Juwon Oshaniwa, Ambrose Efe, Kenneth Omeruo, Ogenyi Onazi, John Mikel Obi, Babatunde Michael, Osaze Odemwingie, Ahmed Musa, Emmanuel Emenike.
