Gernot Rohr has exclusively told SCORENigeria he has invited 28 players for next month’s crucial World Cup qualifiers against African champions Cameroon.

The call-ups are 25 foreign-based stars and three domestic league stars including goalkeeper Ezenwa and Alhassan Ibrahim ‘Muazzam’.

He also told SCORENigeria in the exclusive interview that he was very impressed with the home-based Eagles performance against Benin home and away and so the invitation of these players.

The Eagles list is expected to be released officially by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) this week.

Nigeria will welcome Cameroon to Uyo on September 1 with the return leg in Yaounde three days later.

Nigeria are top their qualifying section on six points from two matches.

Cameroon are second on two points.

Zambia and Algeria are on a point each.
