Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has proposed a squad of 18 foreign-based professionals and five players from the domestic league for next month’s AFCON qualifier in Tanzania.
However, there are suggestions that Oliseh should accommodate more players from the domestic league for the match against Tanzania.
“Oliseh wants to list 18 professionals from overseas for the match in Tanzania, while five places will be left for the players in the local league. But some have asked that he increases the number of the players from the league,” a top official informed.
The foreign-based pros are expected to fly directly to Tanzania, where they will join up with the coaches and the players from the league.
The Eagles training camp is expected to open on Sunday, August 16, in Abuja with players from the domestic league.
The players who impress in this training camp will make the final squad to Tanzania.
On Wednesday, NFF technical committee chairman Felix Anyansi-Agwu confirmed that Oliseh, who has been in Europe monitoring and meeting with the country’s top stars, will arrive Nigeria on August 14.
