Coach Imama Amapakabo has invited 20 players for the crucial African Nations Championship (Chan) qualifying final leg clash against Togo this weekend in Lagos.
Super Eagles’ goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa is top on the list that also has a handful of other new invitees like Enugu Rangers’ Anthony Shimaga, Kano Pillars’ ace Nyima Nwagua (below) and Enyimba defender Ifeanyi Anaemena.
Also making the cut is Nasarawa United forward Sunusi Ibrahim as well as the Lobi Stars’ trio of Ebube Duru, Sikiru Alimi and John Lazarus who were all part of the squad for the Wafu Cup of Nations in Senegal.
Nigeria have a mountain to surmount at Agege Stadium, Lagos on Saturday, with Togo heading into the second leg with a healthy 4-1 lead from the first leg in Lome. To make matters worse Togo also ousted Nigeria from the Wafu Cup 2:1
