Keshi names team for Peru


After initially naming five foreign based players in Obiora Nwankwo, Gege Soriola, Nnamdi Oduamadi, Raheem Lawal and Ekigho Ehiosun, Super Eagles boss, Stephen Okechukwu Keshi moved swiftly to dispel rumours over the list of home-based players for the international friendly against Peru by announcing the names of 26 players for the match.

Team Secretary, Dayo Enebi Achor, said the list was made after due consultation between Keshi, the NFF Technical Department and the Technical Committee of the Federation.

The list include three goalkeepers, nine defenders, while the rest is made up of midfielders and strikers, equally shared. Usual suspects like home-based skipper, Chigozie Agbim, led the list along with exciting winger Ejike Uzoenyi, reliable defenders, Papa Idris, Azubuike Egwueke and Godfrey Oboabona.

Travel arrangements have already been made by the NFF, as the team is scheduled to depart May 19, four clear days before the game aboard Iberia Airline, for Lima, the Peruvian capital. Below is the full list of the 26 players expected in camp at the Bolton White Hotel, Zone 7, Abuja on Sunday, May 6.
