Nigeria have a number of defensive injury concerns for this match with a South Korea side determined to qualify for the next round of the 2010 World Cup Finals.
Nigeria head coach Lars Lagerback will be without midfielder Sani Kaita, who was sent off for a needless challenge in Nigeria’s previous match against Greece.
Rated extremely doubtful, however, are left backs Taye Taiwo, who has a groin strain, and Uwa Echiejile. If neither is fit, youngster Dele Adeleye could deputise in an unfamiliar role.
Upfront Victor Obinna could be dropped in favour of an Obafemi Martins and Aiyegbeni Yakubu strike partnership.
South Korea coach Huh Jung-moo’s team need only a point to qualify if Argentina beat Greece and is unlikely to deviate from the 4-2-3-1 that has served his side well so far.
Monaco forward Park Chu-young will lead the line, with attacking support coming from Manchester United man Park Ji-sung and Bolton’s Lee Chung-yong.
