Nigeria are going into the game with little to play for since they have already qualified for the tournament which will commence in January 2024.
Ahead of this game, Nigeria are topping Group A with two points more than second place Guinea-Bissau who have a game against eliminated Sierra Leone on Monday. A win for Guinea-Bissau and a defeat for Nigeria will change the current standing of Group A.
Aside from that, Samuel Chukwueze who is eager to make his 29th appearance for the Super Eagles wants his team to beat the visitors to regain the love of the fans.
“It's always an amazing feeling to be in the Eagles team. The atmosphere in camp is great and every player is ready for the game. It is the first time in a while that I've seen players fight in training. It's a great feeling”, the AC Milan winger told the press on Friday.
He added, “We plan to win the game which is very important that we win the game even if we have qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations.
