Barring any last minutes hitches, Super Eagles gaffer is expected to unveil a killer squad that will prosecute the double-headed 2023 African Nations Cup qualifier versus Guinea Bissau this Wednesday.

A decent source in the Nigeria Football Federation disclosed to iwitness.com that the Portuguese tactician is keeping names of all invited players close to his chest and may release the list to the media now that the close is clear after hitch-free presidential elections.

In the absence of any injury, most of the players that featured in the last friendly against Portugal are expected to make the list while new entrants might not be ruled off.

The source revealed that the players are expected in Abuja from Sunday while hoping for a hitch-free gubernatorial election on Saturday.

“ Peseiro will unveil his 22-man lists this week and all invited players are expected to start arriving from Sunday,” the source revealed.

Meanwhile, Guinea-Bissau moved a step ahead of Nigeria by releasing list of players that will confront Supers Eagles in the two-legged qualifiers.

Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja will on March 24 host the first leg of the encounter on, while the reverse fixture will take place in Marrakech, Morocco on March 28 due to lack of CAF certified pitch in Bissau.
