The coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Jose Peseiro has released the list of players who will start for Nigeria against Sao Tome and Principe in their second 2023 AFCON Qualifiers game.
Peseiro dropped three players who started the win over Sierra Leone on Thursday with the quartet of Terem Moffi, Zaidu Sanusi, Ademola Lookman and Oghenekaro Etebo replacing Joe Aribo, injured William Troost Ekong, Samuel Chukwueze and Sadiq Umar.
Moses Simon will wear the captain armband for the game and it will be the first time the Nantes winger will be leading Nigeria out in a competitive game. He was made captain in the absence of Ahmed Musa and his vice Ekong.
