World Cup Qualifier; Mikel, Moses, Iwobi Make Super Eagles List For Zambia Clash. [See Full List]

Super Eagles’ technical adviser Gernot Rohr has called up captain John Mikel Obi, Odion Ighalo, Alex Iwobi and 20 other players for the October 7 must win 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying showdown against the Chipolopolo of Zambia.  The match will take place in Uyo, capital of Akwa Ibom state.

Super Eagles list against Zambia

Skipper Mikel and forward Ighalo, both based in China, and England-based Victor Moses, who bossed the two encounters against Cameroon earlier this month, retained their places.

Portugal-based goalkeeper Dele Alampasu could not make the list alongside wing back Tyronne Ebuehi and South Africa-based Daniel Akpeyi.

Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi will be missing in action as a result of injury.

The list comprises the same set of players who decimated the Indomitable Lions. They are defenders Leon Balogun, Abdullahi Shehu, William Ekong and Elderson Echiejile; midfielders Wilfred Ndidi, Ogenyi Onazi and Oghenekaro Etebo and forwards Ahmed Musa, Kelechi Iheanacho, Moses Simon, and Anthony Nwakaeme.

Two home-based professionals, Ifeanyi Ifeanyi and Afeez Aremu, who were part of the Super Eagles B that finished as runners-up at the just-concluded WAFU Cup of Nations in Ghana, are in the standby sector but will join the team’s training sessions in Uyo.
