No fewer than four fresh call-ups will make the Flying Eagles final squad to the U20 World Cup in Poland.
Coach Paul Aigbogun will tomorrow name his final squad, officials have told
Italy-based forward Kingsley Michael, Dele Bashiru from Manchester City Academy and Sweden-based Henry Offiah will make the cut.
Bournemouth midfielder Nnamdi Ofoborh and Sogndal striker Jerome Akor have previously featured for the Nigeria U20s, but they were not involved in the U20 AFCON in Niger.
Otherwise, Aigbogun is keeping faith with the players he has worked with for the past two years.
