Sierra Leone vs Nigeria: Awoniyi and two other players deserving of Super Eagles call-up

As Nigerians wait for the announcement of the list of invited Super Eagles players for the AFCON qualifiers Vs Sierra leone, SPORTSRATION mentions Taiwo Awoniyi and two other players deserving of Super Eagles call-up.

This three are players who have not featured in recent Senior National team engagements for Nigeria.


After a sensational end to the 2022/2023 English Premier League season whixh saw him score six-goals in the last four matches to guide Nottingham Forest top top=flight safety, Taiwo Awoniyi deserves a spot in the Super Eagles squad for the game Vs Sierra Leone.

The forward last featured for the Eagles vs Algeria in November 2022 during in an international friendly game when he came off the bench t replace Terem Moffi.

Not a new face in the Super Eagles setup, Awoniyi is one names Nigerians will look out for when the list is revealed.


Victor Boniface

Another striker, the Royal Union Saint-Gilloise player finished as top-scorer in the UEFA Europa League and earned a spot in the Europa League team of the season.

That was a massive feat considering the fact that Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford was also in the running for the goals scoring prize.

On the strength of his feat, Victor Boniface deserves a call-up for the game vs Sierra Leone.

Boniface [22] has never featured for the Super Eagles, there is no better time than now to hand the striker his first call-up.


Daniel Daga

One of the star performers for the Flying Eagles at the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Argentina.

Daniel Daga deserves a call-up to shore up competition for the defensive midfield role following the loss of form to Wilfred Ndidi.

Dogged, strong and with a fine range of passing,  getting the young Daga to join the team will begin the process of transition from the Wilfred Ndidi era.

Also, FC ONE Rocket player Daniel Daga is young and blessed with enough energy to mark and free up Alex Iwobi to concentrate on the creative responsibility as the Eagles battle Sierra Leone in Liberia.
