Nigeria is in group C with 2014 champions, Libya, Rwanda and Equatorial Guinea. The tournament, organised by the Confederation of African Football (CAF), will run from January 12 to February 4 in Morocco.
Ex-Sharks FC and Enyimba International of Aba keeper, urged the team to win their first match to boost their mentality to next round.
“In 2014, the home-based Super Eagles won bronze. I believe the present team can do the country proud and they should realize that Nigerians are solidly behind them,” he said.
Peterside disclosed that “there is no perfect team, but believe  home-based bound Super Eagles will get better as the tournament goes on.”
