The newly appointed Super Eagles head coach Finidi George has asserted that players who ply their trade in the domestic league- Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) who are good enough for the senior national team would get their chance.

Enyimba goalkeeper Ojo Olorunleke was the only domestic  league player that was in the 2023 African Cup of Nations squad in Cote d’Ivoire and this has made football purists to voice their indignation at the lack of interest in players in the NPFL.

Speaking with journalists, Finidi confirmed that he would continually visit domestic league match venues with the aim of getting quality players from the league for the Super Eagles.

” Definitely I will still come back to Aba to watch Enyimba play because my duty now is to mix the Super Eagles team up with the home-based players,” Finidi told journalists. ”Aba definitely will be my first destination when I come to watch Enyimba play.

“Most likely I will see one or two players that I can take with me to the Super Eagles.”

Super Eagles will face the Bafana Bafana of South Africa and Cheetahs of Benin Republic next month in key 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and the country’s senior national team is in a must-win situation to relaunch their qualification chances.
