Roar names separate Eagles squad for AFCON qualifier against Bafana

The Super Eagles squad list released for the planned friendly against Corsica will be different from the one to be made public for the 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa.

The Eagles’ Media officer Toyin Ibitoye made the clarification on Monday night.
“The 25-man Super Eagles list out this evening is for the Corsica friendly/Paris camp, not for the 2019 AFCON clash versus South Africa,” Ibitoye tweeted.

“At the end of May, the list of players for 2019 AFCON qualifiers versus Bafana Bafana on June 10 2017 in Uyo will be released.”

Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr released a list of 25 players for the friendly and camping in France which included four home-based players Stephen Odey, Sikiru Olatunbosun, Alhassan Ibrahim and Ikechukwu Ezenwa.

Eagles duo of Victor Moses and Ogenyi Onazi were left out.
