The home-based Super Eagles of Nigeria were drawn with Libya, Rwanda and Equatorial Guinea in Group C of 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Morocco.
The draw was held on Friday, as the hosts were drawn in Group A with Mauritania, Guinea and Sudan.
Teams in Group B which are Cote d’lvoire , Namibia, Uganda and Zambia, while Group D consists of Burkina Faso, Angola , Congo and Cameroon.
The top two teams from each group will advance to the quarterfinals.
The tournament, which is designed for players plying their trade in their country’s domestic league, will kick off from 12th January to 4th February 2018.
