Coach Austin Eguavoen is keen to give some fringe players a chance to play to feature in Super Eagles final Group games against Guinea-Bissau.
The Super Eagles are through to the round of 16 of the African Cup of Nations, after beating Egypt and Sudan in their opening two matches.
The Super Eagles aren’t just through to the next round, they are also guaranteed a top place finish — due to better head to head record against their rivals.
The Wednesday’s game is inconsequential, and Eguaveon is now ready to rest some key players and allow others to have a taste of action at the tournament.
“We will give some players chance to prove themselves with the last match, we want to win and boost the confidence level of the team ahead of the knock out stages.“
“It’s not out of place to try some players too, all of them will be given equal chances to play in this tournament”. He said.
The match comes up Wednesday the 19th January, 2022.
