Although the official list of players for Nigeria’s second World Cup 2018 qualifiers tie is yet to be released. Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal the names of 25 players who have been penciled down by manager Gernot Rohr for the November 12 game in Uyo.

However Dutch-Nigerian Tyronne Ebuehi could miss out as exclusively reported by Owngoalnigeria.com as he is yet to be issued a Nigerian passport. But Russian born Nigerian Brian Idowu has no such problem and he is included.

Gernot Rohr is yet to decide on who gets the back up central defence slot between Granada Uche Agbo and Rizespor Godfrey Obabaoana, a decision which could however be made before the end of the weekend.

John Ogu is in the squad at the expense of Nosa Igiebor and Anderson Esiti with Wilfred Ndidi abilities to play in midfield and defence also a factor used in axing the aforementioned duo.

Doubts still persists about the availability of Isacc Success although he assured the manager during a meeting this week, that he will be available. Oghenekaro Etebo is in the squad while teen Super Star Victor Osimhen is in it as well.
