The head coach of the Super Eagles, Jose Peseiro, has named his starting XI for their Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final against Angola this evening.

Stanley Nwabali, will be between the sticks when Nigeria face Angola in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, quarter-final tie on Friday evening.

Recall that The Chippa United keeper was a major doubt after he sustained a knee injury during Nigeria’s 2-0 win over Cameroon in the round of 16 clash last Saturday.

However, Super Eagles manager Jose Peseiro, has kept faith in his players who started against Cameroon in the round of 16, and expects them to get a good result against Angola.

Peseiro will maintain the 3-4-3 formation with the likes of William Troost-Ekong, Semi Ajayi, and Calvin Bassey to shield Nwabali.

Ola Aina and Zaidu Sanusi will be on the right and left flanks.

Alex Iwobi and Frank Onyeka will occupy the midfield, while Victor Osimhen, Ademola Lookman and Moses Simon will spearhead the attack.
