2022 AFCON Qualifiers: Rohr Reveals 24-man Squad for Sierra Leone clash

    Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has recalled Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho for the doubleheader against Sierra Leone in the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

    Nigeria will host Sierra Leone on Saturday, November 14, 2020, in Asaba and travel for the return fixture four days later.

    For the game, Rohr has recalled Iheanacho who has been in and out of the squad since he was dropped from the AFCON 2019 squad.

    The 23-year-old is now back after his resurgence with the Foxes. Since December 2019, the forward has been a regular for Brendan Rodgers’ side and has scored some important goals.

    Also in the squad is Ola Aina, William Troost-Ekong, Leon Balogun, Joe Aribo and Tyronne Ebeuhi as players who were born in foreign countries but later got their Nigerian passport to be eligible to play for Nigeria.

    There are regulars in Rohr’s 24-man squad including Captain Ahmed Musa, his vice, Troost-Ekong and others including Iwobi, Aribo, Victor Osimhen etc.

    The Super Eagles are top of Group L of the qualifiers with two wins.

    The Super Eagles are the leaders in Group L of the AFCON 2022 qualifiers after two consecutive wins over Republic of Benin and Lesotho.

    Victories in the doubleheader will guarantee Nigeria a spot at the 33rd AFCON scheduled for Cameroon in 2022.

    All invited players are to report in the Delta State capital on Monday, November 9.
