Finidi Advocates Inclusion of NPFL Players in Super Eagles AFCON Qualifiers


Super Eagles assistant coach, Finidi George has expressed optimism that players from the NPFL will be selected for the 2024 AFCON qualifier against Guinea Bissau on March 24 & 27.

Finidi claims that the league has players that are talented enough to be part of the squad.

Although Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro hasn’t announced his squad list, players and team officials are expected to return to their Abuja camp next week.

“As assistant coaches of the Super Eagles, our job is to contribute and help the head coach. He needs our support and we will give him.

“If there are players that are good enough, not just to go to the camp and come back, but go there and make an impact, we will give him that advice and we will make sure we get the best out of the players,” said Finidi George.

“The game against Guinea Bissau, if it’s necessary, we have to mix the team; bring some home-based players and overseas-based players and see how we can get the result.

“But this notion that only players based abroad should be invited is not totally a good idea.”
