Secretary General of the Nigeria Football Federation Barrister Musa Ahmadu has hinted that Coach Stephen Keshi will be inviting 24 players for the August 14th friendly against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa.

According to the Federation scribe, a full squad with a healthy mix of tested professionals and their local-based counterparts will be rolled out for the Mandela Challenge in South Africa.

The full squad will play. Coach Keshi will invite 24 players; tested both home and abroad for the Mandela Challenge in Durban, South Africa and of course you know that game is coming three weeks before the crucial World Cup qualifiers against Malawi so it's not a game he is going to toy with.
