Coach of the Under-23 team of Nigeria, Samson Siasia, has extended invitations to Taiwo Awoniyi, Kelechi Iheanacho and Moses, among other foreign-based players, for the Africa Under-23 Cup of Nations.
Alex Iwobi of Arsenal has also been invited to camp ahead of the competition that will be used to get qualifiers for the football event at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, but the NFF will have to secure releases for these players from their respective clubs as the competition has been reported not to be on the FIFA calendar.
In addition to the 16 foreign-based players invited, Siasia has called-up 36 home-based players to camp.
The Africa Under-23 Cup of Nations will be held between November 28 and December 12.
