2019 Nigeria Professional Football League joint-top scorers Nassarawa United star Ibrahim Sunusi and Akwa United's Mfon Udoh have been included in the Nigeria squad for this year's Wafu Cup of Nations.

Imama Amapakabo stuck with the majority of the team that travelled to Lome a fortnight ago for their African Nations Championship (Chan) qualifiers against Togo, except goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa who is set to join Gernot Rohr's squad in Singapore for the Brazil friendly.

The home-based Super Eagles in the company of six officials left Abuja on Thursday and arrived in Dakar that same day.

Nigeria will be aiming to surpass their second-place finish in the maiden edition two years ago when they begin their title challenge against Togo in a knockout fixture at the Stade Lat Dior Thies on Sunday.
