These may still be early days, but of the four teams representing Nigeria in next year's continental competitions, only Akwa United and MFM FC are looking convincing during preseason, although the upcoming NPFL Invitational provides an opportunity for Plateau United and Enyimba to improve on their recent toil.

MFM finished second behind Plateau United and will join the champions in the CAF Champions League, while Akwa United are Aiteo Cup champions and will compete in the CAF Confederation Cup along...
