Despite being a big doubt for the crucial game, the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone head coach John Keister has listed injured defender Steven Caulker in his provisional list on Monday.
The gaffer released the list of 38 players on Monday and Caulker featured prominently on the list.
Caulker underwent successful surgery in early May and is expected to be out of action for up to 2 months.
Sierra Leone will host Super Eagles at the Sam Kanyon Stadium in Monrovia, Liberia on June 18th in match day 5 of the African Cup of Nations.
The Leone Stars must secure a win against Nigeria to have a chance of qualifying for the competition as they are presently placed 3rd in the group.
