Super Eagles defender Elderson Echiejile is in line to make his third start in Ligue 1 this season for Monaco who host Olympique Lyon on Friday, Completesportsnigeria.com can report.
The Nigerian international, who played both games for the Super Eagles in Brussels against Cameroon and DR Congo, was included in Monaco’s 21-man squad for the league clash.
With Fabio Coentrao suspended for the fixture, the 27-year-old is almost certain to start.
Echiejile told Completesportsnigeria.com: “I’m ready to play but I just hope everything falls in place for us to win which is the most important thing.
“Hopefully I get to play more games to keep my place in the national team.”
