According to the squad list published by the Confederation of African Football on their website, Paul Onobi will wear the revered No. 10 shirt when the competition gets underway.

The Sunshine Stars midfielder became a bit of a household name following his brilliant display on his international debut in 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifier against Swaziland.

The No. 10 jersey is associated with Chelsea’s midfielder Mikel Obi.

Tunde Adeniji will also be wearing a new number in the coming campaign, with the forward taking on the vacant No.9 from the Gbolahan Salami who pulled out of the tourney.

Elsewhere, goalkeeper Femi Thomas has been handed the No.16 jersey, with Ikechukwu Ezenwa holding onto the No.1 shirt.

Austin Obaroakpo will wear the No.5 shirt vacated by Solomon Kwambe while captain Chima Akas and Bartholomew Ibenegbu have been given the No.3 and No.12 respectively.

Sunday Oliseh’s men will face Niger Republic in their opening game on January 18 at the Stade Régional Nyamirambo, Kigali.
