The match featured Victor Boniface, earning his first Super Eagles start alongside Victor Osimhen in the attack, flanked by Ademola Lookman and Samuel Chukwueze. Bruno Onyemaechi played at left-back, while Tyronne Ebuehi was on the other side of the defense. Oluwasemilogo Ajayi and Calvin Bassey played in front of Francis Uzoho, and the midfield duo consisted of Wilfred Ndidi and Alex Iwobi.
