Super Eagles of Nigeria’s invited players for AFCON qualifiers against Guinea Bissau

The Super Eagles will be staying at the JohnWood Hotel in Abuja as they prepare for the thrilling encounter against a formidable Guinea Bissau side.

Victory in the two scheduled games could see the Super Eagles snatch an early ticket to the 34th AFCON finals in Cote d’Ivoire early next year. With six maximum points from their previous two matches, victory in the top-of-the-table clashes will see the three-time champions soar to 12 points.

Sierra Leone could earn six points in their clashes with Sao Tome and Principe, but that still keeps them on seven points, while the Super Eagles still have a home game against bottom-of-the-table Sao Tome and Principe on the final match day of the campaign.

Majority of the remaining 19 invited Super Eagles of Nigeria players are expected in Abuja on Monday, March 20th.
