Nigeria head coach Jose Peseiro has named a 23-man squad as the Super Eagles take on Lesotho and Zimbabwe for their first games in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.
Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chukwueze who are all out with injuries with their respective clubs are not included in this squad as they are yet to recover.
Bayer Leverkusen forward Nathan Tella who had the choice between England and Nigeria has been handed his first-call up by Peseiro as he opted to play for the Super Eagles.
Only four midfielders are invited to camp with Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi missing.
Nigeria will host Lesotho in Uyo, on November 16 and make a trip to Huye, Rwanda to face with Zimbabwe’s Warriors on November 19.
