Mallorca striker Omoigui joins F/Eagles
Edafe has been recalled
The 17-year-old Omoigui from the youth team of Spanish club Real Mallorca has already resumed training with the Flying Eagles and he is the fresh call-up by coach Sam Obuh.
Olanrewaju Kayode (Lucerne, Switzerland), Egedi Edafe (AGF Aarhus, Denmark), Aliyu Mohammed Goyi (Tavriya, Ukraine), and Oliha Aigbe (Esperance, Tunisia) are the other pros expected to fortify the team for the match against Tanzania on July 28.
Kayode and Edafe featured at both the AYC and the U20 World Cup in Colombia last year, while Goyi and Aigbe were part of the squad but did not make the final cut for the World Cup.
Kenneth Omeruo was also listed for this match but was later excused as he is presently in pre-season with English Premier League side Chelsea.
Obuh has also recalled Abdul Jeleel Ajagun (Dolphin), Chidi Osuchukwu as well as Bright Ejike (Sharks), who were part of last year’s squad.
The Flying Eagles will face their Benin counterparts in a warm-up match on July 14.
