Super Eagles of Nigeria will unleash a full Squad of her foreign players on the Terranga Lions of Senegal when both sides meet in a high profile international friendly in London, on the 23rd of March, 2017.

This was confirmed by the Franco-German coach Gernot Rohr, who revealed that almost all the players would be used as they perfect their strategy ahead of competitive games.

He also added that some new players would also be tested during the game against the 2002 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) finalists.

Widespread media reports already revealed that the former Gabon and Burkina Faso boss will give as many as five new players the opportunity to stake a claim for a permanent jersey in the Nigerian football team.

Super Eagles are hoping to use the  March 23 friendly with Senegal as part of the preparations for their 2018 FIFA World Cup double header against newly crowned African champions, Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in Group B, when both sides meet later this year.

Nigeria presently lead Group B with maximum 6 points from 2 games ahead of Cameroon (2 points),
Zambia (1 point) and Algeria (1 point).

NASRI ON NDIDI

Sevilla midfielder Samir Nasri, who is on a season-long loan from English Premier League (EPL) side Manchester City has showered praises on Leicester City midfielder Wilfried Ndidi after his superb performance in their 2-1 loss to the Spanish side in their UEFA Champions League (UCL) round of 16 clash played at the Ramon Pizjuan Stadium in Seville on Wednesday night.

Speaking after the game, French international Nasri singled out Super Eagles Star Wilfried Ndidi for his combative performance in midfield adding that the former Genk of Belgium player was especially swift in covering the spaces Sevilla had thrived on in the 1st half during the 2nd half.

” Leicester City put up a good fight in the second half, they denied us space to play the way we love to. In the middle, Ndidi was particularly quick in covering up spaces and that improved their second half performance”, Nasri said after the game.

” We are disappointed to have conceded a goal but we are confident of our chances of progressing after the second leg”.

Nasri, who has also played for Olympique Marseille and Arsenal, was, however, optimistic that his side will still go through to the last eight of the competition after the 2nd leg in England despite their evident disappointment at conceding the away goal to English striker Jamie Vardy during the match in Seville.
