By Andah John
Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr has called up Victor Moses, John Ogu, and Oghenekaro Etebo as part of the 24-man list for the November 12 FIFA World Cup qualifying game against the Fennec Foxes of Algeria in Uyo.
The German also extended invitations to Den Haag of the Netherlands defender Tyrone Ebuehi, and Granada’s Uche Agbo.
Watford FC striker Odion Ighalo returns to the side after missing the 2-1 win at Zambia due to bereavement.
There is, however, no changes in the goalkeeping position as Carl Ikeme, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, and Dele Alampasu all kept their places.
Nigeria currently top Group B of the African qualifiers with three points, followed by Cameroon and Algeria with one point each, while Zambia sit at the bottom pointless.
