Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Technical Adviser Augustine Eguavoen has named his 30 man list for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 play-offs against Ghana.
Eguavoen names Ademola Lookman and Emmanuel Dennis in Super Eagles squad for play-offs against Ghana
Augustine Eguavoen has named his provisional squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Ghana in March
The most notable inclusion in this list is that of Leicester City winger Ademola Lookman. The bi-national was recently cleared by FIFA to switch international allegiance to the Super Eagles and is now primed to make his debut later this month.
Another noteworthy point is the return of Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis. The former Genk man was sensationally absent at January's Africa Cup of nations despite his club releasing fellow Super Eagles player William Troost Ekong, Senegal's Ismaila Sarr and Moroccan defender Adam Masina.
The striker's return was imminent as he was pictured with representatives of the NFF in February.
Here is what the full squad:
Goalkeepers: Francis Uzoho (AC Omonia, Cyprus); Daniel Akpeyi (Kaizer Chiefs, South Africa); Maduka Okoye (Sparta Rotterdam, The Netherlands)
