‘Everybody can’t be invited’ – Eguavoen defends NPFL player selection for Nigeria friendly in Mexico

The 55-year-old will be in charge when the Super Eagles take on El Tri in a friendly outing scheduled in Los Angeles
NFF technical director Austin Eguavoen has reacted to criticism surrounding his selection of Nigeria Professional Football League players for next month’s international friendly match against Mexico.

The home-based players will battle the reigning Concacaf Gold Cup champions at the Los Angeles Coliseum on July 4, in the absence of Gernot Rohr’s men who will be at their European clubs for pre-season training.

On Sunday, 25 NPFL players were summoned to camp in Abuja with two players expected to be dropped before the final 22-man squad travels to the United States.
