Super Eagles Head coach Jose Peseiro has agreed that he’s open to recruiting new younger players into the Super Eagles whether they’re abroad based or local.
The Portuguese tactician however, stressed that they must be invited and handed a chance if they show motivation.
“There are many, many players at the moment that can play for Nigeria,” Peseiro told the Mirror.
”With that, it’s not easy, our work.
“You receive some information or when you watch many players on TV or live, you can discover more players, more players, more players.
“I was in some matches when I was in England to see some players, then at the same time we discover, ‘well that player can play for us, also’, normally young players.
“There are many good players with quality, capacity and good training. For us, if we want to win the next AFCON, I am happy because I have many players with quality to create a good national team.
“But it’s not easy to choose the right players. We try to see them in the match, after that I try to call them for our practice and our friendly games because we want to create a small group with quality for developing in training and practice to implement our ideas to win the next AFCON.
“But there are a lot of players, and they need to show the maximum demand and motivation to play for Nigeria. Quality, of course, but demand and motivation to play for us.”
