Nigeria is set to mark its 20th appearance in the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations, bolstered by a legacy that includes three championships. The Super Eagles, with their formidable offensive lineup featuring stars like Victor Boniface, Terem Moffi, Moses Simon, and Victor Osimhen, are geared up for a powerful performance in Côte d'Ivoire.

In Group A, Nigeria faces stiff competition from Cote d'Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, and Guinea Bissau. The Super Eagles' journey in Cameroon 2021 culminated in a quarter-final finish, and this time, they are eyeing the championship title.

  • January 22, 2024: Against Guinea-Bissau at 5:00 p.m. GMT, Stade Félix-Houphouët-Boigny, Abidjan

The Super Eagles topped Group A in the qualifiers with 15 points, outshining all but Guinea Bissau, who handed them their sole defeat in this phase.

  • Nigeria's AFCON Record:
  • Champions: 1980, 1994, 2013
  • Runners-up: 1984, 1988, 1990, 2000
  • Bronze Medalists: 1976, 1978, 1992, 2002, 2004, 2010, 2019

As Nigeria steps onto the field, expectations are high for them to add another glorious chapter to their rich football history.
