Lagos - The Nigerian U20 boys’ football team, the Flying Eagles will largely remain unchanged for their last group E game against Hungary on Sunday in New Plymouth, News24 Nigeria has learnt.
Coach Manu Garba made four changes for the game against North Korea, with the quartet of Godwin Savior, Kingsley Sokari, Bernard Bulbwa and Akinjide Idowu coming in for Isaac Success, Kelechi Iheanaco, Musa Yahaya and Ifeanyi Matthew, who all started in the loss to Brazil.
Godwin Saviour proved to be the Saviour, as his two goals in the second half set the African champions on their way to victory, with another new entrant, Kingsley Sokari also getting on the score sheet.

And barring any late injuries, News24 Nigeria understands that Manu Garba is disposed to fielding the same starting eleven that beat the North Koreans.
There has been a lot of calls for Manchester City youngster, Kelechi Iheanacho to be restored back to the starting eleven, but News24 Nigeria understands it is highly unlikely as Manu wants to retain the team that got him his first win in New Zealand.
There are no fresh injury concerns in the team, bar Ifeanyi Matthew, who was ruled out of the game against North Korea on Thursday.
