Ahead of their group D Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) clash with Sudan, the Super Eagles have released their squad list for the match.

Interim Coach Augustine Eguavoen remains convinced in the same team that defeated Egypt in their Group D opener.

One change many people expected was that of Kenneth Omeruo.

The Leganes man had to be replaced by Semi Ajayi in the win over Egypt.

However, as the knock he sustained has healed, he starts in the heart of the defence with William Ekong.

Here is the full squad set to face Sudan.

The Super Eagles kickoff against the Falcons of Sudan in Garoua at 5 pm.
