The coach of the Nigeria U20 team Paul Aigbogun has listed a squad of 20 players who will prosecute the first leg of their AFCON 2019 Qualifiers tie against Guinea Bissau.
Aigbogun picked Bnei Sakhnin shot stopper Akpan Udoh as one of the two goalkeepers, and he is also the only foreign base player in the squad for the tie, which is the first leg of the second round of qualifiers for next year Africa Youth Championship.
Team captain Ikouwem Udoh lead the defenders listed for the game, while right full back Michael Zarumma who did very well in the two legged friendly game against Egypt also made the squad.
Kano Pillars wonder boy Ibrahim Alhassan was listed among the midfielders with the likes of Peter Eneji, Wasiu Alalade, Idris Guda and top striker Jerome Akor made the squad as expected.
The team will depart for Lagos tomorrow from where they will connect a Royal Maroc flight to Guinea-Bissau on Thursday by 6pm Nigerian time for the Saturday clash.
