The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have invited 26 players ahead of the upcoming Super Eagles games against Ghana and Mali later this month, reports.

On March 22 and 26, the Super Eagles will file out for action for the first time since their disappointing 2-1 loss to Ivory Coast in the final of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations on February 11.

Initially, there were plans for the Super Eagles to take on El Salvador and Argentina in friendly games, but the games were canceled.

However, the NFF have now secured two other friendly games for Nigeria as they will play close rivals Ghana, and Mali later this month.

Ahead of the fixtures the NFF have announced a list of 26 players, with Luton Town star Gabriel Osho and Tanzania-based Benjamin Tianimu getting their first national team call-up, while Fisayo Dele-Bashiru, Cyriel Dessers, and Wilfred Ndidi return to the team after missing out on the AFCON. Notably, captain Ahmed Musa was left out.
