The Super Eagles of Nigeria will be hoping to wrap up the group stage of the rescheduled 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) on a high note when they face Guinea-Bissau on Wednesday night.
The Eagles began their campaign with a 1-0 win over the Pharaohs of Egypt last week Tuesday before sealing a 3-1 victory over Sudan in their second group game last weekend.
The two wins already secured their place in the round of 16 of the competition, but they face Guinea-Bissau in their final group clash to ensure top spot in the group.
The Austin Eguavoen side need a draw to secure top spot in the group, but the coach has said that his players will be gunning for a win to maintain perfect start.
The other game of the group between Egypt and Sudan is also of importance as both teams will be locking horns over a ticket to the next round.
The games are billed to kickoff simultaneously by 8:00p.m.
