Captain John Obi Mikel and striker Kelechi Iheanacho are most expected to be in the squad who Rohr said will not be too different from the stars who defeated Tanzania in an AFCON 2017 qualifier in September, according to Vanguard.

The Franco-German coach has also said Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi and Portugal-based Oghenekaro Etebo will be invited after they have recovered from injuries.

News24 reported that Rohr had hinted on the possibility of goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama coming from retirement for the crucial Russia 2018 qualifiers.
