Peseiro Names Osimhen, Musa, 23 Others In Super Eagles Final AFCON Squad

Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro, has announced his final 25-man squad for the forthcoming African Cup of Nations in Cote’d’Ivoire.

The tournament is scheduled for January 13 to February 11, 2024.

The Nigerian is drawn in Group A alongside hosts Ivory Coast, Equatorial Guinea, and Guinea Bissau.

Peseiro had earlier December unveiled a 40-man provisional squad, including three goal-keepers from the local league.

However, for the final cut, Peseiro on Friday named African Footballer of the Year, Victor Osimhen, captain, Ahmed Musa, and Chippa United goalkeeper, Stanley Nwabili.

Nwabili, drafted in to solve the team’s goalkeeping crisis is joined by long-standing first-choice, Francis Uzoho and Enyimba FC goal-stopper, Leke Ojo who is the only home-based player in the squad.

The former Kano Pillars forward is not the only returnee, Vice-Captain William Troost-Ekong, is back in contention after missing the Eagles’ recent games over a reported rift with Peseiro.
