Super Eagles Head Coach, Jose Peseiro is gearing up to name his first squad for the senior national team of Nigeria, the coach has been taking a look at several players who can be a part of the team.

The Nigeria national team will likely play two friendly games in September with talks already advanced with Cameroon and Portugal. Both games will accord Peseiro the chance to try out new players.

Coach Peseiro has highlighted Crystal Palace winger Malcolm Ebiowei as one of the players he is keen on giving a chance with the senior national team of Nigeria owing to what he has seen so far of the 18 year old.

A close source to the coach revealed that his uncle Finidi George, who doubles as the assistant coach of Peseiro has already sounded out the player who is eager to play for Nigeria, despite the disappointment he suffered in the U17 camp of Nigeria in 2019.

We gathered he told Finidi that his favourite position is playing behind the main striker, more like the number ten role and he played that role and excelled for the Crystal Palace U23 against Brighton and Hove Albion in a recent Premier League 2 game.

He scored a sublime goal to follow up his exciting perfomance as a substitute for the main team in their opening English Premier League game which they lost 2-0 to Arsenal.
