The players are Vice Captain and defender Ariwachukwu Emmanuel and midfielders Alhassan Ibrahim, Ifeanyi Ifeanyi and Aremu Afeez.
The invited players are regular starters for the Promise keepers and have played more than 90% of their team’s matches this season
The quartets are among the thirty domestic league players invited by the Super Eagles handlers to prepare for the CHAN qualifier against the winner between Togo and Benin Republic.
All the invited players are expected to report at a yet to be named training camp later this month and they will be allowed to go back and play for their clubs during weekend matches.
Meanwhile, the Management and coaching crew of Akwa United have congratulated the players on their invitation to the national team and urged them to use the opportunity to step up their game while focusing on making the final 23-man team.
Super Eagles won bronze in 2014 and will engage the winner of a preliminary fixture between Togo and Benin Republic, with the first leg to be played on the weekend of 11th – 13th August while the return leg will take place in Nigeria on Saturday, 19th August.
