The Super Eagles of Nigeria have released squad that will slug it out with the Black Stars of Ghana in this month’s make or mar World Cup qualifiers.
The senior National football team released the squad in a post via their Instagram account on Friday morning.
The first leg of the all important match will take place on March 25 in Ghana and the second leg will take place on March 29 in Nigeria.
See the Super Eagles squad to face Ghana below:
Goalkeeper: Maduka Okoye, Francis Uzoho, Daniel Akpeyi
Defenders: William Ekong, Kenneth Omeruo, Leon Balogun, Ola Aina, Semi Ajayi, Zaidu Sanusi and Shehu Abdullahi.
Midfielders: Wilfred Ndidi, Joe Aribo, Frank Onyeka, Akinkunmi Amoo.
Forwards: Ahmed Musa, Moses Simon, Samuel Chukwueze, Victor Osimhen, Sadiq Umar, Kelechi Iheanacho, Emmanuel Dennis and Ademola Lookman.
Stand-by: Chidozie Awaziem, Jamilu Collins, Chidera Ejuke, Taiwo Awoniyi, Paul Onuachu, Peter Olayinka and Ogenyi Onazi.
The team will hope to bounce back from their disappointing outing at the just concluded Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon where they were eliminated by Tunisia in the second round despite winning all matches at group stage and being pundits’ favourite to win the tournament.
Booking a place at the world cup finals which will take place in Qatar next year will make up for the the team’s early exit at AFCON and also assuage the displeasure of many Nigerians whose hope were dashed by the deflating turn of events.
