Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro has freshened up his squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sierra Leone and Sao Tome and Principe.

The Super Eagles will host the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone next week Thursday at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja.

The former African champions will travel to Marrakech, Morocco, to keep a date with the Falcons of Sao Tome and Principe four days later.

Peseiro dropped six out of the eight home-based players that were part of the team to the United States of America for the friendlies against Mexico and Ecuador.

Only Akwa United goalkeeper, Adewale Adeyinka and Katsina United defender, Sani Faisal made the 27-man squad.

Peseiro kept faith with the regular stars, with the likes of Ahmed Musa, William Troost-Ekong, Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chukwueze among those called up.
