Port Harcourt - Super Eagles assistant coach Salisu Yusuf has hinted there could be more home based players in the main Super Eagles team the next time they converge for a competitive fixture.

Six home based players were selected for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania, even though only one - Solomon Kwambe - got to feature.

"Everybody now has the opportunity to exhibit his quality and talent and in the nearest future, maybe we will see more than six in the team," Salisu told News24.

However, three players - Solomon Kwambe, Chima Alas and Usman Mohamed started against Les Mena of Niger Republic in the international friendly at the Adokiye Amasiemaka Stadium in Port Harcourt.
