Legendary Nigerian goalkeeper Ike Shorunmu has praised Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro’s squad selection.
The Portuguese tactician recently announced the squad for the upcoming 2023 AFCON qualifying double header against Guinea Bissau.
The 23-man Super Eagles squad is headlined by Europe-based stars Victor Osimhen, Alex Iwobi and Ahmed Musa.

“Atleast, Jose Peseiro has shown some level of consistency with the list he has released.
“I am confident the Super Eagles will get the job done against Guinea-Bissau.”
Shorunmu played for Nigeria at the 2002 FIFA World Cup finals in Korea/Japan and he has 36 international caps for the West African giants.
