The Nigerian Super Eagles will be hoping to maintain their good form in the ongoing African Cup Of Nations tournament when they play their upcoming matches, but there are some players who should be in the starting lineup for the team in order for them to perform better. Here are two players who should start for Nigeria in their next AFCON match, as well as the players who should replace them.
FIFA has granted African talents permission to depart Russia. FIFA has created a special transfer window for foreign players to leave Russia in the wake of the country's invasion of Ukraine, which means the two Nigerian stars who have been stranded in Moscow can now leave the country.
Since the two-legged match between Nigeria and the Central African Republic, Chidera Ejuke of the Super Eagles has been one of the most talked about players. Due to his ability to take on defenders, his stamina in the game of football, and his pace in the game, the Nigerian football hero garnered the attention of many football fans in the country and beyond.
Because there are less than 23 days left until the start of the postponed 2021 African Cup Of Nations, the teams that will be competing are putting their preparations into high gear in order to have a successful appearance at the event. It is expected that Nigeria's first match against the Pharaohs of Egypt will take place on the 11th of January 2022, and Austine Eguavoen, who will be in charge of the Super Eagles, is already planning the finest plans that will work for him against the north African side.
As we get closer to the start of the postponed 2021 African Cup of Nations in Cameroon, one issue the temporary Super Eagles manager will have is deciding which players to deploy in the tournament. There are a slew of strikers making waves in Europe right now. Goals have been scored by the players for their respective clubs.
