The Super Eagles will engage in a three-nation tournament in Abu Dhabi as part of their preparation for the AFCON.

 

Burkinaso Faso and Democratic Republic of Congo are the teams that will take part in the tourney.

 

Jose Peseiro’s side will open their campaign at the AFCON 2023 finals against Equatorial Guinea on January 14.
