Siasia gives Verdict on Super Eagles 24-man list vs Libya

Gernot Rohr has selected the right blend of players capable of delivering a win for Nigeria in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Libya in Uyo, former Super Eagles Coach Samson Siasia has told

Rohr invited 24 players for the two-legged qualifiers, with the exception of captain Mikel Obi. The list was headlined by the recall of William Troost-Ekong, Alex Iwobi among other regulars.
