New Super Eagles Coach Eguavoen Adds Nwakali, Amoo, Three Others To Super Eagles AFCON Squad

Newly appointed coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Austine Eguavoen has altered the Super Eagles provisional list of players for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, OwnGoalNigeria.com can exclusively reveal.

Erstwhile coach of the team Rohr submitted a list of 40 players from which he intends to call 30 to camp for preparation for the AFCON but following his sacking, the list now has some new names in it.

We gathered Huesca of Spain midfielder Kelechi Nwakali has been added to the list as well as Akinkumi Amoo of Swedish side Hammarby. Amoo was due to be a part of the Super Eagles team for an exhibition game in Spain but the game has now been cancelled owing to the recent wave of coronavirus.

The game in Spain was supposed to be prosecuted by four foreign based players and 16 players picked from Nigeria Professional Football League teams. In the list of foreign based players Alhassan Yusuf of Belgium side Antwerp was also listed.

Like Amoo, Yusuf we gathered has now been added to the list same as a unnamed player picked from the NPFL. We also gathered that Usman Mohammed of the Nigeria U23 of 2016 who now plays for Hapoel Haidara in Israel is also in the list prepared by Eguavoen.
