The Super Eagles will play Sierra Leone in a must-win encounter after winning only one of two games against Guinea-Bissau in March
The roster includes Napoli star Victor Osimhen, who was recently awarded Serie A’s best attacker, goalkeeper Adebayo Adeleye, who will replace Francis Uzoho, and defender William Troost-Ekong, who is returning to the team after a lengthy injury layoff.
The long-awaited list of the former Venezuela manager contains four home-based players, including Victor Sochima (Rivers United), Olorunleke Ojo (Enyimba FC), Rivers United defender, Chidiebube Duru, and Divine Nwachukwu of Bendel Insurance.
The Super Eagles previously defeated the Leon Stars in 2022, coming back from a goal down to win 2-1. They will be expected to do the same when they go to Liberia to confront John Keister’s troops at the SKD Sports Complex.
The 2013 AFCON Champions are slated to resume camp on June 11 to prepare for the encounter slated to hold on the 18th of June.
