"If they are able to displace the invited ones, they would be included in the team to Canada. The camping is going to be a game by elimination. We need the best to represent Nigeria in Canada. Most of the invited players from abroad are midfielders and complete finishers. My major work now is to subject the homebased defenders to serious blending. We are working on them to subject the home based defenders to serious blending.
