Nigeria have been handed a favourable draw for the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) on Friday
The Home based eagles have been grouped alongside Libya, Equatorial Guinea and Rwanda.
The 16-team tournament, which takes place in Morocco between January 12 and February 4, 2018, is exclusively for players based in their domestic leagues.
Nigeria, whose best outing was a third-place finish in 2014, will be making their third appearance at the tournament
Libya, the 2014 champions, make a return to feature for a third time at the competition
Rwanda, on their part, are expected to provide the Super Eagles with a stern test.
Equatorial Guinea are tipped to be the underdogs in the group due to their inexperience at international level.
