Nigeria vs Central African Republic team news



Coach Gernot Rohr called up 23 players for the double against the Central African Republic. The team is led by hardcore veterans like Leon Balogun and William Troost-Ekong, while team captain Ahmed Musa is in line to join FIFA’s club of the century. Fit forwards Victor Osimhen and Paul Onuachu will lead the line and Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho has also been included. Notable absentees include the Premier League trio of Oghenekaro Etebo, Wilfred Ndidi, and Alex Iwobi, who are battling injuries. The latter was replaced in the squad by Lorient forward Tereq Moffi, who has also been ruled out due to injury. Union Berlin’s Taiwo Awoniyi has been rewarded for his good form in the Bundesliga as his replacement. Villarreal’s Samuel Chukwueze has yet to return from the long-lasting injury he suffered in the Europa League semi-final in April. Rangers defender Calvin Bassey received his first call-up for the Super Eagles, while Frank Onyeka returned after an impressive start to the season with Brentford. Injuries: Peter Etebo, Tereq Moffi, Alex Iwobi, Wilfred Ndidi, Samuel Chukwueze
