Four New Super Eagles Invitees Have The Same Mission Against Ukraine

Four New Super Eagles Invitees Have The Same Mission Against Ukraine

Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr handed a late call-up to Club Brugge winger Emmanuel Dennis, thereby bringing the number of new invitees to four ahead of friendly game against Ukraine.

We take a look at the profile of the four players along with the challenge ahead of them.

1. Joe Aribo

Joe Aribo is seen as the perfect replacement for retired captain John Obi Mikel, following his bright start to life at Rangers.

Considering the number of midfielders at Rohr's disposal, Aribo will hope to capture the affection of the manager against Ukraine to stand a chance for more invitations.

2. Dennis Emmanuel

The young winger obviously knows the gravity of task ahead of him as he needs to put up excellent display to be in Rohr's long-term plans.

Henry Onyekuru, Ahmed Musa, Samuel Chukwueze, Samuel Kalu and Simon Moses are very much in the gaffer's plan, hence, Dennis' mission against Ukraine is obvious.

3. Maduka Okoye

One of the surprise call-ups, the 20-year-old Maduka Okoye has got to impress if given the chance to register his debut appearance for the West African side.

The Fortuna Duesseldorf II goaltender is currently the third-choice behind Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Francis Uzoho.

As much as the youngster needs to justify his inclusion into the team, he will hope to keep his place in the Super Eagles squad for subsequent matches .

4 Josh Maja

The English-born striker finally gets his chance to represent Nigeria as he was handed a late call-up to the team.

Just like the other three newbies, the Bordeaux star will want to grab this opportunity with both hands by putting up an eye-catching display.

The encounter is scheduled to take place on the 10th of September at the Dnipro Arena.
