Ahmed Musa, 3 Other Home-based Players Listed In Provisional Squad For Cameroon Friendly [Full List]

The number of home-based players now getting the attention of Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser Gernot Rohr appears to be increasing as four of them were called up on Friday.

The home-based players Rohr has invited include team captain Ahmed Musa of Kano Pillars and perennial call-up, goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa of Heartland FC.

Two players of Enyimba International FC of Aba, goalkeeper John Noble and forward Anayo Iwuala, also made the list.

Rohr, according to a list released Friday by Ademola Olajire, Director of Communications at Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has drawn up a provisional squad list of 31 players.

The players are for Nigeria’s international friendly game against five-time African champions Cameroon in Austria on June 4.

The game will take place at the Wiener Neustadt in Vienna, the Austrian capital, starting from 8:30 p.m. Austria time.

“The team’s deputy captain, William Ekong, goalkeeper Maduka Okoye, defenders Kenneth Omeruo and Chidozie Awaziem, midfielders Wilfred Ndidi and Oghenekaro Etebo and forwards Victor Osimhen, Kelechi Iheanacho and Samuel Chukwueze were also called up,” Olajire said.

He disclosed that there was a first call-up for Portugal-based Abraham Marcus.

“Enyimba’s energetic forward Anayo Iwuala, whose tenacity and drive has helped the Aba-based side to the quarter-finals of the CAF Confederation Cup, has another opportunity to fight for a place and continue on his international footprints, following cameo appearances against Benin Republic and Lesotho in AFCON qualifiers in March,” Olajire added.

He disclosed also that the provisional list of 31 would be pruned down to 23 before the team head to Vienna for the clash with the Indomitable Lions.
