Roster for AFCONQ matches against Sierra Leone

The Super Eagles roster for this month's Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches against Sierra Leone hands FC Cologne wing-back Kingsley Ehizibue and Heracles Almelo goal scorer Cyriel Dessers with  maiden call-ups.

Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho has been recalled to the team  due to his recent performance with the Foxes, while teammate Wilfred Ndidi and Everton’s Alex Iwobi return.

 

Heartland’s Ikechukwu Ezenwa is the only home-based player in the 24-man squad.

The squad has  three goalkeepers, eight defenders, five midfielders and eight strikers.

 

As of March 3, 2020.
