Lagos - Super Eagles assistant coach, Salisu Yusuf, who is
in charge of scouting the home based players for the team has already submitted
a list of possible invitees to head coach Sunday Oliseh, which includes several
‘new faces’, News24 has been told.
It remains unclear the number of home based players that
will be called to camp, but News24 understands there will be major changes to
the group that was usually called by former coach, Stephen Keshi, with some of
his favoured players dropped.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria will officially commence camping
on August 17 ahead of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations and 2016 CHAN qualifiers
in September and October respectively, and the first group of players to arrive
will be the home based, with new coach Sunday Oliseh expected to announce his
first Super Eagles list in the coming days.
The players will commence training for the first time under
Oliseh from the 17th, but will be allowed to honour league games for their
respective clubs and will be in camp until when the overseas based players will
be invited to camp.
The home based players will be preparing for the 2016 CHAN
qualifiers against Burkina Faso in October, but some of them will make the team
to face Tanzania in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
