A total of 24 players were held invited to execute the two remaining group games of the FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifying series.

The trio of Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, Al-Shabaab’s Odion Ighalo and John Noble are still expected to join the squad ahead of the qualifiers.

The Super Eagles will face the Lone Star of Liberia in a matchday five encounter this weekend as the race for the final knockout phase of the qualifiers continues.

The three-time African champions, who are top of the group, will then host the Blue Sharks of second-placed Cape Verde in their final group game next week Tuesday at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.
