Glamtush reports that the Super Eagles of Nigeria are set to begin their quest for a fourth continental crown at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon.

Nigeria, 2013 winners, are in Group D of the competition and will be playing in their 19th AFCON as the tournament kicks off in the Central African country.

They will battle Egypt, Sudan, and Guinea-Bissau in Garoua.

Ahead of the competition, interim coach, Austine Eguavoen, had called up 28 players for the competition weeks after he was appointed to replace long-time manager, Gernot Rohr.

But the three-time African champions will be without the services of talismanic striker, Victor Osimhen. Also, Dennis Emmanuel of Watford, and former Manchester United forward, Odion Ighalo, were also replaced days after the list of invited players was released.

The Super Eagles will begin their campaign against seven-time champions, Egypt, on Tuesday.
