CAF made the announcement on its verified Twitter handle on Monday.
The three Super Eagles’ players’ inclusion is as a result of their impressive performance in Friday’s 4-0 thrashing of Group B foes Cameroon in Uyo.
Moses scored the Eagles’ third goal and provided an assist for the second goal while Balogun and Ndidi were excellent in defence and midfield respectively.
