While Bayer Leverkusen’s Nathan Tella and Fisayo Dele-Bashiru, Tyronne Ebuehi, Cyril Dessers, Wilfred Ndidi, and Sadiq Umar made a comeback to the team, players who featured at the AFCON dominate the team.

Nigeria will take on Ghana on March 22nd before playing Mali on the 26th of the same month. The games are preparatory for the World Cup qualifiers later in June when the Super Eagles face South Africa.
