Ahead of the much-anticipated kick-off of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, Africa’s largest football event set to take place in Ivory Coast, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) unveiled the definitive squad lists for the 24 qualified teams on Saturday.
The first match of the tournament is scheduled to take place in Abidjan on January 13, 2023.
In adherence to the recently implemented regulations, each Participating Member Association (PMA) is granted the liberty to submit a final squad comprising a maximum of 27 players. However, only 23 players from this roster can be selected for each match throughout the tournament.
Notably, a player included in the final squad can only be replaced in the event of a severe injury, and this replacement must be executed no later than 24 hours before the team’s first match.
Nigeria is in group A alongside Cote D’ivoire, Equitorial Guinea and Guinea Bissau.
