Four new invitees relish Super Eagles call-up for Friday's dead rubber 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against the Pirates of Seychelles and the friendly game versus the Pharaohs of Egypt.

Danish club FC Midtylland striker Paul Onuachu, Enyimba left-back Ikouwem Udo Utin, Akwa United utility star Ndifreke Effiong, and Enyimba center-back Valentine Ozornwafor among the 19 players for the last Group E game at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba and international friendly with Egypt four days later.

Onuachu is the leading Nigerian scorer in Europe after scoring 14 league goals for the club in Denmark stated in a short video posted on the Super Eagles’ official Twitter handle.

The Super Eagles have already booked a place at Egypt 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, and are looking to end the qualification series on a high note with a fourth win but Nigeria beat Seychelles 3-0 with Odion Ighalo, Chidozie Awaziem and Ahmed Musa finding the net at Stade Linite, Victoria.
