Afcon 2017: Adeniji, Salami Miss Cut, Oliseh Select 6 NPFL For Tanzania Clash


The list includes Ikechukwu Ezenwa(Sunshine Stars),Solomon Kwambe(Warri Wolves),Chima Akas(Sharks),Austin Obaroakpo(Abia Warriors), Usman Mohammed (Taraba) and Prince Aggreh (Sunshine Stars).The surprise omission from the list is captain of the team, Gbolahan Salami who is reported to have Passport issues with the Norwegian embassy as per sources.

”After impressing playing for Warri Wolves, Salami submitted with passport with the embassy of Norway as his agent reportedly secured him a contract with a club in Norway’s elite division.

However, despite the fact that he should have been either given a visa or had his passport returned over three weeks ago, there has been no additional contact from the embassy.”

The now select 6 will now await the 18 foreign pros invited by Sunday Oliseh from the week commencing August 31. Sunday Oliseh is expected to lead his players from Abuja for Tanzania via a chartered flight on Thursday September 3, 2015.

After the Dar es Salaam mission the team will move straight to Port Harcourt from Tanzania to continue preparations for the Sept.8 international friendly against Niger Republic.
