Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, has penciled down Watford of England striker Isaac Success, Feirense of Portugal midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo, Chelsea winger Victor Moses and South Africa-based goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi for the for the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Algeria billed for November 12 in Uyo.
Akpeyi who was at the Rio Olympics as one of the over-aged players has been playing regularly for his South African club Chippa United and is seen by the German born coach as a formidable deputy for top choice Carl Ikeme.
Similarly, all the five players invited from the Nigeria Profession Premier Football League may be ruled out of the Algerian game following the end of the league.
Rohr is not favourably disposed to invite the players whom he said will be match rusty before the game next month.
The five players include goalkeepers Emmanuel Daniel and Ikechukwu Ezenwa, defender Jamiu Alimi as well as strikers Godwin Obaje and Chisom Egbuchulam.
