There is palpable tension in Super Eagles camp in Faro, Portugal as head Coach, Stephen Keshi prepares to announce his final 23-man squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations campaign that will get underway in South Africa, January 19th.
The coach will name a list of 23 players who will wear the national colours at the Afcon 2013 championship today.
The media was awash yesterday with various lists on the team but Super Eagles Media Officer, Ben Alaiya dismissed them as "speculative."
He said, "Head Coach Stephen Keshi said he has heard of a list making the rounds in Nigeria but urged soccer-loving Nigerians to ignore the lists purportedly issued by him.
"We will give out the names of the 23 man squad on Wednesday. I plead with Nigerians to be a little bit patient with us because it's a difficult thing to do".
