Dream Team VI coach, Samson Siasia, has invited Barcelona defender Elohor Godswill Ekpolo and Tottenham Hotspur loanee Nathan Oduwa to camp ahead of the Africa U-23 Nations Cup which begins in Senegal next month.
This is not the first time the former Nantes forward has handed a call-up to Ekpolo as he was supposed to run the rule over the stopper last December but the player could not attend the get-together because he was recovering from injury.
“After the All Africa Games in Congo, I noticed some departments of the team that needed to be worked on, ” Samson Siasia told thenff.com.
“So I decided to extend my dragnet in search of players who have shown interest in playing for Nigeria in a bid to building a solid team that will be the pride of all Nigerians. ”
La Masia Academy product Ekpolo has appeared 9 times for Barcelona B team in the Segunda B division this season.
Glasgow Rangers winger Nathan Oduwa has racked up 13 appearances for the youth teams of England but none of those caps came in a competitive fixture, therefore, he does not need Fifa clearance to switch allegiance to Nigeria.
