At the Veltins Arena in ‎Gelsenkirchen, Germany, Super Eagles defender Chidozie Awaziem will be hoping to make his UEFA Champions League debut on Tuesday after he was included in FC Porto’s 22 man match day squad to face German side, Schalke 04.

Awaziem is yet to make an appearance for FC Porto this season. He has four international caps to his name since he made his debut for Nigeria against Argentina in a friendly.
