Dessers and Ehizibue earn Nigeria call-ups as Iheanacho returns.

The two players will be in line to play for the Super Eagles in upcoming fixtures after featuring prominently for their teams this season.

Gernot Rohr has included FC Cologne’s Kingsley Ehizibue and Heracles Almelo’s Cyriel Dessers in his latest Nigeria squad, while Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho returns to the team.

The Super Eagles will host the Leone Stars on March 26 in a 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier before heading to Freetown for the return leg at the Siaka Stevens Stadium four days later.

Nigeria are currently sitting top of Group L on six points, having won all two of their fixtures to date.

 

Dessers has been handed his first international call up after scoring 15 goals in 25 Dutch top-flight outings.

The striker is joined in the 24-man squad by right-back Ehizibue, who is a regular for Cologne in the German Bundesliga.

Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho returns to the squad after a years hiatus.

If Nigeria pick up another win against the Leone Stars, their spot in the next Afcon will be guaranteed, which might give Rohr the opportunity to bring in younger members of his squad in other qualifiers.
