Iheanacho and Ajayi were dropped from squad that represented Nigeria at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt after initially making the provisional squad.

Ebuehi was not considered for selection as he was recovering from the cruciate ligament that sidelined him for the entire 2018/2019 season.

Rohr also handed first invitation to Joe Aribo who has made headlines with Scottish giants, Rangers this season and young goalkeeper, Maduka Okoye, who plays for German club, Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi, Shehu Abdullahi and John Ogu were dropped from the squad that took part at AFCON 2019.

Former captain of the team, John Mikel Obi and Odion Ighalo were expectedly not included in the list following their recent retirement from international football.

Otherwise, Rohr kept faith with majority of his regular stars with Ahmed Musa, William Troost-Ekong, Kenneth Omeruo, Wilfred Ndidi and Oghenekaro Etebo among those named in the squad.

Lille of France new boy, Victor Osimhen, Moses Simon, Samuel Chukwueze, Alex Iwobi and Chidozie Awaziem were also included in the team.
