Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has announced the list of players selected for the double confrontation against Sierra Leone, next month in the CAN 2021 qualifiers. In view of these two meetings, the Super Eagles will be able to count on returns of Victor Osimhen, transferred this summer from Lille to Naples, and Peter Etebo (Galatasaray), but not in the presence of Wilfred Ndidi (Leicester) and Samuel Kalu (Bordeaux), unavailable. The Swiss-Nigerian goalkeeper Sebastian Osigwe (26), an ephemeral U20 international, is called up for the first time with the A.

As a reminder, Nigeria had won its first two meetings in group L, by disposing of Benin (2-1) and Lesotho (4-2).
