Amokachi picks Enyeama and 27 others for Bolivia

imageGoalkeeper and Skipper, Vincent Enyeama will most likely win his 100th senior cap for Nigeria after being selected among 28 players for the friendly matches against Bolivia and South Africa later this month.

The three –time FIFA World Cup star, presently on 99 caps, heads a list that also includes Godfrey Oboabona, Kenneth Omeruo, Ogenyi Onazi and Ahmed Musa.

In-form England-based duo, Odion Ighalo and Brown Ideye, Germany-based Anthony Ujah and Leon Balogun, as well as China-based Aaron Samuel, who scored two goals in the futile campaign for a place at the 30th Africa Cup of Nations, were listed.

There are 18 overseas-based and 10 home-based professionals on the list, with former junior international Akeem Latifu and Enyimba duo Kingsley Sokari and Mfon Udoh also called.

Amokachi had obliged a special request by injured Victor Moses, one of the stars of Nigeria’s triumph at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, to be listed as the Stoke City star believed he would recover before the two bouts. The players are expected to report at the Le Meridien Hotel, Uyo on Monday, 23rd March for the March 26 clash with Bolivia, with the squad heading to South Africa on Friday, March 27 for the battle with the Bafana Bafana in Nelspruit on Sunday, March 29.
