In a statement on Thursday, Ademola Olajire, spokesman for the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), said Rohr had stuck largely with his dependables in this list.

“Goalkeepers Maduka Okoye and Francis Uzoho, as well as defenders William Ekong, Abdullahi Shehu, Chidozie Awaziem, and Leon Balogun, are on this list of players,” the NFF stated. ”We also have midfielders Wilfred Ndidi and Oghenekaro Etebo, and forwards Ahmed Musa, Alex Iwobi, Moses Simon, and Victor Osimhen on the roster,” he said.

Olajire, however, disclosed that the situation with the team’s UK-based players, who may not be heading to Cape Verde, had enlarged the roster.

Cape Verde is on the red list of the UK with regards to the global coronavirus pandemic.

“Should the situation remain unchanged, in terms of the matter of exemptions, the eight UK-based players on the list will head back to base after the clash with Liberia at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos on Friday,” he explained.

The team’s 30-player list saw a return for South Africa-based goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi, defenders Kenneth Omeruo and Kevin Akpoguma, and Greece-based forward Henry Onyekuru.
