Eguavoen calls up 12 FOREIGN-BASED PLAYERS

Under-23 coach Austin Eguavoen has called up 12 Europe-based players for this month's Olympic Games qualifier, including two previously named by senior coach Samson Siasia for the Super Eagles.

Obiorah Nwankwo and Nnamdi Oduamadi will both drop down a level to join Austin Eguavoen's team, but only after sending some time with the senior team.

Leicester City forward Danny Uchechi is among a pack that also includes goalkeeper Dele Ajiboye, Kennedy Nwanganga, Haruna Lukman, Okeychukwu Uchebo, Chukwuma Akabueze and Nurudeen Orelesi.

Completing the list are Ganiyu Oseni, Alex Albert, and Ibok Edet.

The Under 23s play Equatorial Guinea in Benin City, one day before the Super Eagles engage Ethiopia in a 2012 African Nations Cup qualifier in Abuja.
