Warri Wolves striker, Gbolahan Salami was one of the top names missing as Super Eagles Coach Sunday Oliseh named six players from the country’s top flight to make the trip with the overseas-based stars for the 2017 AFCON qualifier against Tanzania.
Coach Oliseh selected Warri Wolves strong man, Solomon Kwambe, Sunshine Stars goalkeeper, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Austin Obaroakpo of Abia Warriors, under-23 star, Mohammed Usman, Prince Aggreh of Sunshine Stars and Sharks wing back Chima Akas.
Oliseh picked the six players after his last warm up match on Thursday against Amakson Soccer Academy.
The former Juventus midfielder said last week that the players from the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL have shown lots of promise after a week of their training camp in Abuja in preparation for the AFCON qualifying match against the Taifa Stars of Tanzania.
Oliseh told the players that he was impressed by the way they acquitted themselves and made it difficult for him and his assistants to make the choice of six players.
Oliseh has now sent home all of the NPFL players to join up with their clubs for this weekend’s matches while the six selected players will return to the Abuja lodging camp to continue in Nigeria’s preparations for the Tanzania match along with the overseas-based players.
The Super Eagles are scheduled to face Tanzania in Dar es Salaam on September 5.
