The Super Eagles everything is ready for a top-flight friendly with the Portuguese national team in Lisbon on Thursday night.
The Eagles hope to show the world what they can do despite missing out on a place in the World Cup, which starts in Qatar in less than 72 hours.
Despite being up against his country, Super Eagles coach, Jose Santos Peseiro, has called on the three-time African champions to go for a prestigious friendly win on Thursday.
The 50,000-capacity Estádio José Alvalade will be the venue for Thursday’s friendly, which will be the first between the two countries.
In the absence of Ahmed Musa, William Troost-Ekong will lead the Super Eagles against Portugal.
Although players like Victor Osimhen and Olisa Ndah pulled it off injuries from tonight’s tie, coach Peseiro has a decent line-up to spring a surprise or two against Portugal’s World Cup.
Kick-off is 18:45 Portuguese time (19:45 Nigerian time).
