Forwards: Ahmed Musa (Fatih Karagumruk, Turkey); Samuel Chukwueze (Villarreal FC, Spain); Moses Simon (FC Nantes, France); Odion Ighalo (Al-Hilal FC, Saudi Arabia); Kelechi Iheanacho (Leicester City, England); Emmanuel Dennis (Watford FC, England) and Victor Osimeh (Napoli, Italy), Ademola Lookman (Leicester City, England)

Super Eagles’ first choice goalie Maduka Okoye (Sparta Rotterdam, Netherlands) was on Tuesday replaced by John Noble (Enyimba Nigeria) due to illness.

Nigeria host Ghana at the country’s premium sports facility on Tuesday next week, in what is the final leg of a playoff to determine one of Africa’s tickets to the 22nd FIFA World Cup finals in Qatar, holding 14th November – 18th December this year.

The winners over the two legs will advance to the World Cup billed for Qatar from November 21 to December 18.
