Will Henry Onyekuru ever realise his potential with Nigeria?

Despite scoring two goals for Galatasaray at the weekend, and featuring for 90 minutes in their Champions League clash against Schalke 04, Henry Onyekuru is unlikely to start for Nigeria in this weekend's Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa.

Can Nigeria's John Ogu take his opportunity against Bafana?

For the first time since September 2015, Nigeria approach a match without any of their three first-choice midfielders in a matchday squad.

When they last met, Bafana opened cagily, were lucky not to concede early when Oghenekaro Etebo's effort whistled just wide, and then went on to counterpunch for two goals against a young and inexperienced Nigeria side.

That loss, following...
