Coach Salisu Yusuf will this week submit his call-up list for Championship of African Nations (CHAN) 2019 to pour cold water on several purported lists being circulated.
“We expect the coach to submit his squad list this week,” a top NFF official said.
“He’s still compiling his list as he was in Maiduguri at the weekend to watch league leaders Plateau United against hosts El Kanemi Warriors.”
Next month, Nigeria will take on the winners of the playoff between Benin and Togo for a place at CHAN in January 2019.
The country finished third on their CHAN debut in 2014, but failed to go past the group stage in Rwanda last year.
