Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has announced names of players that will do battle against Seychelles in the 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifiers at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna on September 7th, 2018.

Already, the Captain of the Super Eagles, John Mikel-Obi has withdrawn from the clash, as vice-captain Onazi will be looking to lead the Super Eagles team to victory against Seychelles.
Nigeria is in group E with the likes of South Africa, Libya, and Seychelles.

The Super Eagles lost their first game at home to South Africa 0-2 on June 9th, 2017, while Libya defeated Seychelles 5-1 to be topping the group, while South Africa also with 3-points are in second place, followed by Super Eagles and Seychelles who are yet to record any win. See the names:

Goalkeepers:
Francis Uzoho, Daniel Akpeyi, and Ikechukwu Ezenwa
Defenders:
Leon Balogun, William Troost-Ekong, Brian Idowu, Kenneth Omeruo, Chidozie Awaziem, Ola Aina and Jamilu Collins
Midfielders:
Wilfried Ndidi, Ogenyi Onazi, Joel Obi, John Ogu, Semilogo Ajayi, Oghenekaro Etebo, Kelechi Iheanacho, Kelechi Nwakali
Forwards:
Ahmed Musa, Odion Ighalo, Simeon Nwankwo, Alexander Iwobi, Henry Onyekuru, and Samuel Kalu.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria are regrouping again for the first time since the Russia 2018 FIFA world cup, after winning just one game in the tournament which was a game against Iceland.

The Nigerians and the Nigerian team had so much expectations going to the world cup in Russia, but our hopes were dashed when the Super Eagles failed to improve on their games, and continued with their horrible performance and results in almost all the friendly games played before the world cup at the main world cup event.

Although the AFCON game is a few weeks away, it is not yet known if there is any friendly game that has been lined up for the players, given that one, the League season in Europe are just resuming, and most of these players fitness level are yet to be tested at the highest level since the just concluded world cup. It will be a disaster if the Super Eagles should lose the game or even draw as that could put the hope of qualifying to the AFCON 2019 in big danger.

Hopefully, the absence of the likes of John Mikel Obi and Victor Moses does not affect the team in terms of Leadership on and off the pitch, as Rohr and his Super Eagles team look for a positive result in Kaduna.
