Nigeria and Guinea-Bissau will, later in March, play hosts to each other in two AFCON 2023 qualifying fixtures spread across four days.

Guinea Bissau head coach Baciro Cande has handed call-ups to 25 players for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualification double-header against the Super Eagles later this month.

As the qualifying series for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations makes a return, Nigeria and Guinea-Bissau will play hosts to each other in two fixtures spread over three days.

The first fixture will see the Djurtus head to Nigeria to take on the Super Eagles at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja.
