Stoke City midfielder Peter Etebo has been named in Nigeria’s provisional 2019 Africa Cup of Nations squad.

The 23-year-old, who made 37 appearances for the club last season, is one of 25 players selected by the Super Eagles.

Gernot Rohr’s squad will meet up for a training camp at the start of next month, before facing Zimbabwe in a warm-up game on 8th June.

The squad will then be trimmed to 23 players ahead of their final pre-tournament friendly on 16th June against Senegal.

Nigeria, who last lifted the trophy in 2013, will start their Africa Cup of Nations campaign against Burundi on 22nd June, followed by further group matches against Guinea and Madagascar.
