As preparations hots up ahead of Nigeria’s AFCON 2017 qualifiers against Egypt interim coach of the Super Eagles Samson Siasia will further trim his squad of home based players before the arrival of the foreign based professional.

Owngoalnigeria.com exclusively gathered that the duo of Godwin Obaje and Sincere Seth who have both been doing well in camp are set to join the U-23s ahead of their friendly game against Brazil on the 24th of March.

19 year old Obaje has been scoring regularly in training and test games but his chances of making the team are slim due to the avalanche of options available to the coaches in attack.

He will hence drop to the U-23s where he will push for a spot to join the traveling party to Brazil for the friendly game against the U-23 team of the host of the next Olympics.

Sincere Seth on his path has always been a part of the U-23s and he will return to the team despite posting above average showing in training with the Super Eagles as like the case of Obaje he has little or no chance of getting selected if he stays with the Super Eagles.
