The Technical Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will vet Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro's list for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
Peseiro is expected to submit a 55-man provisional list to the Confederation of African Football (CAF) ahead of the 2023 AFCON finals latest December 14.
The technical committee has made it mandatory for the Portuguese to submit his list for proper scrutiny following the Super Eagles insipid display in recent outings.
"Peseiro must submit his provisional list for the AFCON to the technical committee for proper vetting before it is forwarded to CAF," a reliable source close to the technical committee told Completesports.com.
"Peseiro has kept on inviting some players who are not playing regularly for their clubs and they are not contributing anything to the team.

"This time around, he must present his list before the committee and defend it as it was the practice in the past.
"They have also told him to look in the direction of some players who are doing well at their respective clubs, especially midfielders, who can add value to the team."
Peseiro is expected to name a final 27-man squad for the competition from the provisional list.
The final roster is expected to be submitted to CAF by January 3, 2024.
The Super Eagles are drawn in Group A with hosts Cote d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea and Guinea-Bissau.
The 2023 AFCON finals will run from January 13 to February 11, 2024.
