The Super Eagles gaffer has extended invites to few home-based players for the warm-up clash against Thomas Kojo’s side

Ebube Duru, Mfon Udoh, Olamilekan Adeleye and Sunday Adetunji have all been called up for Nigeria’s international friendly against Liberia on Tuesday, September 11.

Gernot Rohr opted to offer the Nigeria Professional Football League stars another opportunity to test themselves against the foreign-based players.

The new invitees will join 21 Super Eagles players on their return to Lagos from Victoria, where they defeated Seychelles 3-0 in Saturday's 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifying encounter.

On Monday, they are expected to depart Lagos for Monrovia ahead of Tuesday's all-west African match-up.

The friendly, billed for the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex, was arranged in honour of country president and 1995 Fifa World Player of the Year George Weah.
