Keshi invites 30 players for Liberia friendly

Super Eagles

Super Eagles’ Head Coach, Stephen Keshi, has invited 30 players to the camp of the Senior Men’s National Team, Super Eagles, ahead of the international friendly match against the Lone Star of Liberia in Monrovia on Wednesday, February 15.

Keshi is expected back in the country early next week and has ordered the players to resume in camp on Sunday, February 5. The friendly match originally fixed for January was brought forward due to the anti-fuel subsidy removal protests in the country at the time.

There are three goalkeepers, eight defenders, 11 midfielders, and eight strikers. Most of the players were in the squad that held Angola’s ‘A’ team to a 0-0 draw in an international friendly in Abuja on Wednesday, January 11. The Super Eagles are expected to leave for Monrovia on February 13.
