The coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Jose Peseiro has tweaked his official list of players called up for the upcoming international friendly game against Algeria next weekend.
Peseiro named 25 players for the game but was forced into making a late change with the injured Leon Balogun making way for Valentine Ozornwafor after he was ruled out due to injury.
Earlier today, Nottingham Forest forward Emmanuel Dennis was called up as a replacement for Henry Onyekuru who has also been ruled out of the game with an Injury.
We gathered that might not be the only change made to the list as two players namely Innocent Bonke and Alhassan Yusuf have also been told to be on alert as they are on the provisional list as possible replacement. Already their clubs have been contacted about the arrangement.
ALL THE INVITED PLAYERS:
Goalkeepers: Francis Uzoho, Maduka Okoye, Adeleye Adebayo
Defenders: William Ekong, Kenneth Omeruo, Chidozie Awaziem, Olaoluwa Aina, Calvin Bassey, Zaidu Sanusi, Kevin Akpoguma, Leon Balogun
