Ahead of the next international break, some football fans are clamouring for the invitation of strikers Chuba Akpom, Cyriel Dessers, Gift Orban and others for the dead rubber 2024 Africa Cup of Nations clash between Nigeria and Sao Tome and Principe on September 10,
The Super Eagles have already qualified for the continental showpiece event after a dramatic 3-2 win over Sierra Leone in their Group A clash at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex, Monrovia, Liberia in June, with a game to spare.
After finishing second in the group, Guinea-Bissau are also through to the AFCON, while Sierra Leone and Sao Tome are eliminated from the tournament.
While it remains unclear who will coach the Eagles when they face the Selecao, with the Nigeria Football Federation yet to renew Portuguese Jose Peseiro’s contract, fans are of the opinion that Akpom, who on Tuesday was named the Championship Players’ Player of The Year, following his excellent campaign with Middlesbrough last season, should be invited.
