The countdown for the July 6 crunch tie between home based Super Eagles and their Cote D’Ivoire counterparts continued on Thursday with the technical crew of the national team tinkering a bit with the squad for the encounter.
Team Secretary, Dayo Enebi Achor, was quoted by Media Officer Ben Alaiya, as saying that Akwa United star Ezekiel Mbah has been invited to replace Ranchers Bees Samson Pius by the Stephen Keshi led technical crew of the national team.
The decision was tagged strategic by the technical crew, as arrival date in camp remains this Sunday, June 30th at the Bolton White Apartment, Zone 7 in the Federal Capital City, Abuja.
All Players have been asked to come to camp with their international passports so as to facilitate the trip to Abidjan for the return leg of the encounter. The first leg encounter has already been scheduled for the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in the sprawling city of Kaduna in Northern Nigeria.
