Nigeria and Guinea-Bissau would lock horns in the African Cup of Nations qualifiers slated in Abuja this weekend before the reverse fixture is played in Guinea-Bissau.

But with the match getting closer by the minutes, soccer-loving Nigerians would be imagining in their mind the players that are going to make the difference on the pitch.

With anticipation brewing in the heart of soccer-loving Nigerians, highlights certain players that could be key for Nigeria in this fixture.

Calvin Bassey (Ajax Amsterdam, Netherlands)Calvin Bassey: Who is the Nigeria international signed by Ajax? |  South AfricaThe left-footed defender Calvin ‘Ughelumba’ Bassey would be an ample player for Nigeria Super Eagles ahead of this tie.

He has already carved a niche for himself in the Nigerian Super Eagles following his debut early last year.

And with Troost-Ekong and QPR defender Leon Balogun missing out on this match, expect him to come on board with his quality and fine display on the pitch.

Not also minding the rave of criticism he’s received at his new club Ajax Amsterdam in the current season.

Though it looks like the goals have dried up for Lookman, his quality (on the ball) is never in doubt.

While he could also be Nigeria’s creative spark in transition with the presence of quality players like Joe Aribo and Samuel Chukwueze around him in the team.

Victor Osimhen (SSC Napoli, Italy)AFCON Qualifiers: Free-scoring Osimhen promises goals against Guinea Bissau  | Premium Times NigeriaThe Nigeria Number 9 would lead the charge for goals in this one for the Super Eagles.

And with his form at Napoli where he scored twice against Torino in the Serie A, much would be expected of him in the Nigerian shirt. While he is also becoming a household name in World Football.

He would be a huge asset in front of the goal for Nigeria. And he has the fear factor to withstand pressure from the opponent’s defence.

And Guinea-Bissau much watch out for him in this duel as they lock horns with the star-studded Nigeria Super Eagles side.
