Nigeria and Watford attacker, Emmanuel Dennis, may miss the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

“The email arrived late. “They have a time when they need to send a pre-call; if they don’t send it, we can choose.”

Head Coach Augustine Eguavoen has named his 28-final list of the Super Eagles of Nigeria for the 33rd Africa Cup of Nations taking place in Cameroon 9th January – 6th February 2022, with Captain Ahmed Musa, midfield Wilfred Ndidi and attackers Victor Osimhen and Dennis all making the list.

Celebrating his being named in the 28-man Nigeria squad, Dennis posted on Twitter, “Proud to get a call up to represent my country.

The three–time winners will confront seven-time and record winners Egypt, Sudan and debutants Guinea Bissau with venue in the northern town of Garoua, and a mouth-watering clash with the Pharaohs in the group opener on Tuesday, 11th January means the Eagles must hit the ground at a blistering pace.
