Star Nigerian duo Victor Moses and goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama will be part of the Super Eagles squad for the game against Sudan in the 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Moses and Enyeama were left out of the Nigerian national squad in the previous qualifier games due to technical and personal reasons respectively that seemed to be pushing their international careers to an end.

Nigeria have suffered poor results during the current African Cup of Nations qualifiers campaign, losing to Congo 3-2 before their goalless draw with South Africa in the second game of the final qualifiers.   

Nigeria are third in group A, behind Congo and leaders South Africa, while Sudan are fourth in the group ranking.

The Super Eagles will face Sudan in October for their third game of the final qualifiers.
