In anticipation of the delayed 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro has revealed his finalized 25-man squad. Captain Ahmed Musa secures his place in the lineup, while Enyimba’s Olorunleke Ojo stands out as the lone home-based player selected.
The team’s social media platforms released the list on Friday evening, featuring prominent names such as Victor Osimhen and the often-criticized Francis Uzoho. Peseiro’s decision follows his earlier unveiling of a 40-man provisional squad for the prestigious continental football event.
Although the Confederation of African Football (CAF) allows a maximum of 27 players for each team, Peseiro opted for a 25-man squad. Notable additions include Chippa United goalkeeper Stanley Nwabili, representing the new faces in the lineup. The team comprises three goalkeepers, and veteran William Troost-Ekong makes a return after a hiatus, joining the nine defenders summoned for the tournament. Among them is Kenneth Omeruo, a member of the victorious 2013 team, securing his place once again.
