The Super Eagles of Nigeria are gearing up for an exciting friendly clash against the Black Stars of Ghana and Mali’s Les Aigles, as reported by

In the 26-man squad announced by the Nigeria Football Federation, Gabriel Osho from Luton Town FC and Tanimu Benjamin, recently signed with Ihefu SC, have been called up to reinforce the team for the upcoming matches.

These high-profile international friendlies are set to take place in Marrakech, Morocco, where both Gabriel Osho and Tanimu Benjamin will proudly represent Nigeria.

Meet Gabriel Osho:

Gabriel Osho began his career with Reading FC but gained prominence as a first-team player for Luton during the 2021–22 season, making 26 appearances.

His standout moment came in the Championship play-off semi-final against Sunderland, where he contributed to the team’s promotion to the Premier League.

Despite an injury setback at the start of the 2023–24 season, Osho made a memorable Premier League debut against Aston Villa and netted his first Premier League goal against Arsenal, showcasing his talent and potential to bolster the Super Eagles’ defense in the absence of William Troost-Ekong.

Meet Tanimu Benjamin:

Currently with Ihefu SC in Tanzania, Tanimu Benjamin made a notable transition from Bendel Insurance before the Africa Cup Of Nations tournament.

The 21-year-old central defender, formerly with Bendel Insurance in the Nigeria Premier Football League, represents the wealth of talent nurtured within the NPFL ranks.

The addition of Benjamin shows the extent of his potential and gives the Super Eagles’ defence more depth and vigour.
