The remaining players are anticipated to include Super Eagles forwards Kelechi Iheanacho and Terem Moffi, who will go to Cote d’Ivoire on Saturday and Sunday, respectively, for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Iheanacho is scheduled to arrive one day before Nigeria’s opening encounter with Equatorial Guinea, according to ZINGTIE. Meanwhile, Sadiq Umar, the forward for Real Sociedad, has been disqualified from the competition.

Moffi, Victor Boniface’s last-minute replacement, is anticipated to join the team on Sunday.

The AFCON will run till February 11 and begins on Saturday with a match between Guinea-Bissau and Cote d’Ivoire, the hosts and Nigeria’s Group A opponents.

According to Babafemi Raji, the media officer for the Super Eagles, neither player participated in the team’s second practice on Thursday in Abidjan.

Umar, now in Abidjan, ran on the sidelines on Thursday while Peseiro and his team worked with the remaining 22 of the final 25 men. Umar did not practice with the rest of the squad.

This came after the Real Sociedad striker, who would miss at least three weeks of activity due to a knee injury sustained during their warm-up game against Guinea in Abu Dhabi.

Before the team’s one-week training camp in Abu Dhabi ended, Wilfred Ndidi, a midfielder for Leicester, was the first to be declared out. Alhassan Yusuf of Antwerp replaced him. Victor Boniface, a hot player for Bayer Leverkusen, also had a groin injury.
