Keshi picks five foreign pros for Peru Friendly

Super Eagles boss, Stephen Keshi, has made good his intention of using a sprinkle of foreign based players for the May 23 international friendly against the Peruvian national team, by naming five foreign based stars for the friendly.

Those named by Keshi are Turkey based striker, Ekigho Ehiosun; Gege Soriola who plays in the South African league, for Free State Stars; former U23 national team skipper, Nwankwo Obiorah of Parma in Italy; Nnamdi Oduamadi of Torino FC; and much talked about Raheem Lawal of Spanish side, Atletico Belaeres.

 

The players are expected to report to the national team’s training camp which opens on Sunday, May 6 in Abuja even as Keshi has reiterated that the home based team will be unveiled in due course.

 

All the players named are thought to be on top of their game at the moment and Keshi said he called them up because he needed the players in the relevant departments and will not hesitate to call on others for other friendlies and qualifiers that are due in the very busy month of June.
