New players in Super Eagles camp

11 July 2013, 16:54Augustine Osayande

 Abuja - Super Eagle coach Stephen Keshi has called four new players to the side that will play Ivory Coast in the second leg of the African Nations Championship qualifier away to Ivory Coast.

The additions are Kwara United and former junior international defender, Ganiyu Ogungbe, Rabiu Mohammed of Kano Pillars, Enugu Rangers striker Salisu Abdullahi and Osadinye Joseph of Warri Wolves.

They join the 20 players that did the job against Ivory Coast in the first leg. Sunday Mba scored two goals and created two in the commanding
4-1 win.

All the invited players are expected to report in Abuja on Monday.

The match is scheduled for Abidjan on July 27.

The comfortable win in the first leg puts the team in a favourable position to progress to the African Nations Championships for the first time.

The tournament, scheduled for South Africa in January, is exclusively for players plying their trade in their respective countries’ domestic leagues.

The qualifier has saved Keshi the headache of securing foreign-based players, whom clubs are usually reluctant to release.
