Ikechukwu Okorie vs Amajita
Europe-based Kenneth Omeruo and Aliyu Mohammed Goyi are in the Flying Eagles final squad for Sunday’s AYC qualifier against South Africa.
Goyi, who is based in Ukraine, has already arrived for the match, while Omeruo, a Chelsea loanee with Dutch club ADO Den Haag, is being expected.
Both players did not feature in the first leg qualifier in Nelpsruit a fortnight ago which ended 1-1.
Otherwise, coach John Obuh has stuck with the core of the team from the draw at the Mbombela Stadium with Sunshine Stars striker Harrison Egbune the only player who did not travel to South Africa last month.
The final squad:
Goalkeepers: Samuel Okani, Jonah Usman
Defenders: Ikechukwu Okorie, Chizoba Amaefule, Halilu Obadaki, Shehu Abdullahi, Kenneth Omeruo, Aliyu Mohammed Goyi
Midfielders: Moses Orkuma, Abduljaleel Ajagun, Ovboka Agboyi, Uche Agbo, Chidi Osuchukwu
Strikers: Alhaji Gero, Yahaya Adamu, Bright Ejike, Umar Aminu, Harrison Egbune
Coach: John Sam Obuh
