The name of Udinese of Italy goalkeeper, Maduka Okoye, who was in goal for the Nigerian team at the last AFCON in Cameroon was missing from the list released by CAF on its website on Wednesday.

Apart from Musa, other players who have been away from the team for some time that made the provisional squad are William Troost-Ekong, Zaidu Sanusi, and Paul Onuachu.

The list will later be pruned down to 27 players and submitted on January 3, 2024 deadline. This addition is four more players for the tournament from the usual 23 players.

The African football-governing body, however, the registration of the four additional players on the final list is only option and not an obligation.

According to CAF, in case a team submits a final squad of between 24 and 27 players, only 23 of them will be available for selection for each match during the tournament.

It added that a player in the final squad can only be replaced after a serious injury no less than 24-hours before the team’s first match following the approval of the medical certificate by the CAF Medical Committee.

The final tournament will take place from 13 January to 11 February 2024 in the Ivorian cities of Abidjan, Bouake, Korhogo, San Pedro and Yamoussoukro.
