"We are trying to inject new blood into the team. You know we have young players that are new to Nigerians,"Amokachi told supersport.com

"Hopefully with what we say them show in Europe they will be able to show same here.< /p>

"We just had one training today but we are hoping the Nigerian jersey will not be too heavy for some of them because it's not easy to wear the national colors.

"The pressure is immense, but we just hope, so we just hope it doesn't take it's toll on the day so that they can give the best performance that they can give Nigerians

Amokachi also reiterated his commitment to including the home based players as a way of continuing with Steven Keshi's tradition of infusing the home based players and the foreign based players.
