In attack, Al Ahly forward Junior Ajayi was left out alongside Malaga striker, Brown Ideye, with the coach preferring to give Lokosa, who has scored 18 goals in 20 games in the domestic league, and Nwankwo, who grabbed seven goals in 22 Serie A outings in the outgoing season, their chances to make the trip to Russian Federation.
