DATE AND TIME FOR NIGERIA AFCON 2021 GAMES

Nigeria, 2013 winners, are in Group D of the competition and will be playing in their 19th AFCON when the tournament kicks off in the Central African country.

They will battle Egypt, Sudan, and Guinea-Bissau in Garoua.

Ahead of the competition, interim coach, Austine Eguavoen, had called up 28 players for the soccer party weeks after he was appointed to replace long-time manager, Gernot Rohr.

But the three-time African champions will be without the services of talismanic striker, Victor Osimhen, and a handful of players for the AFCON.

The country’s top scorer during the qualification games for the championship was excused from the tournament on health grounds.

He was not the only one left out of the squad. Compatriot, Dennis Emmanuel of Watford, and former Manchester United forward, Odion Ighalo, were also replaced days after the list of invited players was released.

They will begin their campaign against seven-time champions, Egypt, on Tuesday.
