The Super Eagles of Nigeria will trade tackles with the Benin Republic and Lesotho in 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in few weeks.
Head coach Gernot Rohr is saddled with the responsibility of picking the best 23 players for the first two official matches in the brand new year.
After the disappointing end to 2020 which saw Super Eagles draw three matches and losing, first time the team will finish a calendar year without a win in about 30 years, they are expected to regroup and bounce back as one of Africa's best.
But the attacking department is giving the Franco-German some tough time in terms of selection with some new faces expected to be seen.
Taiwo Awoniyi has taken his game to another level in the German Bundesliga with Union Berlin as the Liverpool Loaned has scored five times.
Paul Ebere Onuachu has scored two dozens of goals in the Belgium top flight and despite his unimpressive show in the national team so far, his name is expected to be on the list again.
Terem Moffi is doing wonders in the French Ligue 1 and with Gernot Rohr familiarity with the terrain, the talented forward will surely be included while Victor Osimhen is fully fit and ready to continue his scoring run in the qualifiers.
Josh Maja grabbed the headlines on Sunday in the English Premier League when his brace earned Fulham a valuable away victory over Everton at the Goodison Park.
The two goals brought him into deliberation but there is also a Kelechi Iheanacho who also scored twice in last three appearances for Leicester City.
