Overseas-based Eagles Get June 3 Arrival Deadline

By Johnny Edward:


Invited overseas-based Eagles are expected to report to camp latest on the 3rd of June ahead of  the 2017 AFCON qualifier against Chad and Tanzania, Completesportsnigeria.com has reliably gathered.


The Three time AFCON champions face Chad at the Kaduna Stadium on the 13th of June before tackling Tanzani in Dar- es salaam.
Stephen Keshi however dropped five of his high profile players for the fixtures and handed shock call-up to three relatively unknown Nigerian players.


Groningen defender William Troost-Ekong, Kingsley Madu of AS Trencin in Slovakia and Portugal-based Anderson Esiti are the surprise inclusions in the squad while Chelsea midfielder John Mikel Obi, Emmanuel Emenike, Efe Ambrose and Elderson Echiejile were left out.


Recall that the Confederation of African Football (CAF) picked Nigerien official Assoumane Gnali as center referee for the qualifier between Nigeria and Chad.
