However in bid to do so, the final roster for the Nigerian under-20 national team competing in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations has been released by Flying Eagles head coach Isah Ladan Bosso. Egypt, Senegal, and Mozambique, the second debutant, were drawn as opponents for Bosso’s team in the Under-20 African Cup of Nations. Senegal, who finished second in 2015, 2017, and 2019, as well as the tournament’s host, who triumphed in 1981, 1991, 2003, and 2013, make up the group of death.

The Zambian Junior Chipolopolo were defeated 4 to 2 by the Bosso led side in a test game played at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja, demonstrating their readiness. Following the clash, Bosso has been busy burning all candles to select the best squad capable of delivering the nation its first triumph in 2023.
