Ademola Lookman: lots of Super Eagles fans will be expecting the Leicester wingman to impress as he has six goals and made four assists.

Moses Simon: The Nigeria star man was impressive for the Super of Nigeria in the 2022 Afcon. he has also continued that same form in his club FC Nantes.

Emmanuel Dennis: The Watford forward will be in the eyes of all Nigerian fans. Dennis has impressed so far this season although his scoring streak dropped a bit. the Nigerian has also scored in all five of Watfordโ€™s league wins this term, also Dennis participated in 14 of the 25 goals scored by Watford this Premier League season.

Calvin Bassey: the Rangers man gets his first call-up for the Super Eagles under Augustine Eguavoen, Calvin Bassey has been impressive this season for the Rangers.

Why Iwobi is not on the list?

Iwobi has been a key part of the Nigerian National team but the Super Eagles boss chose to omit the Everton midfielder Alex Iwobi from the squad list not because of his performance but due to the red card he received in the 2022 Afcon. The red card received by Iwobi means that the Everton midfielder is not eligible to feature in the crucial World Cup qualifier against Ghana.
