[FULL LIST] AFCON’23: CAF confirms Super Eagles provisional list
20th December 2023
The Confederation of African Football has released the provisional squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations as submitted by the Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro.
CAF confirmed the list as disclosed on its website on Wednesday.
Peseiro is expected to make his final squad submission to the CAF before the January 3 deadline expires.
Included on the list are three home-based players – Ojo Oluwasegun (Enyimba FC), Christian Nwoke (Sporting Lagos FC) and Obasogie Amas (Bendel Insurance).
Following a decision by the CAF Organising Committee of the AFCON, all 24 teams will be permitted a final squad of 27 players, four more than the initial 23 from previous tournaments.
The registration of the four additional players on the final list is only an option. “In case a team submits a final squad of between 24 and 27 players, only 23 of them will be available for selection for each match during the tournament.
“Meanwhile, a player in the final squad can only be replaced after a serious injury no less than 24 hours before the team’s first match following the approval of the medical certificate by the CAF Medical Committee,” the information obtained on the CAF website read.
The final tournament will take place from January 13 to February 11, 2024, in the Ivorian cities of Abidjan, Bouake, Korhogo, San Pedro and Yamoussoukro.
