Qualifier: Eagles coach rules out NPFL players against Algeria

Super Eagles Chief Coach, Salisu Yusuf, says it would be difficult for any Nigeria Professional Football League players to make the 23-man list for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Algeria.

Yusuf revealed that with the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season on break, the Senior National Team Coaches cannot guarantee the fitness level of the local league players and so would all be excused from the November 12 cracker against the desert foxes at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, Uyo.

The coach said the qualifier was a crucial game for Nigeria and would not want to toy with it.

Yusuf said their slots would be used to add more new players who have been scouted, but are yet to be invited to be watched at close range.
