Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has said he expects uncapped Joe Aribo, Emmanuel Dennis, Maduka Okoye and Joshua Maja to grab their chances with the national team in tonight’s friendly in Ukraine.
All four players will be expected to make their Eagles debut in Dnipro tonight.
“We have some new and young players here so it is a good opportunity to see what they can bring to the team,” Rohr said.
“This game is a big opportunity for us to begin our build-up towards the 2021 AFCON and the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
“Some of our key players retired from the team after the last AFCON in Egypt and some others are not here owing to injuries and other issues.
“We hope for a good game against a very solid team playing at home.”
Stand-in captain William Ekong added: “Ukraine is a strong team with a lot of very good players across Europe.
“I know a few of those in Italy where I play. This game is definitely going to be very tough but we will give our best and also make it very difficult for them. I believe it will be a very good game.”
The match will be beamed live by SuperSports by 7.30 pm Nigerian time.
