The squad, since being pruned to 30 last month and subsequently to 26 last week, has been awaiting the final list

Mikel Agu, Moses Simon and Ola Aina who were dropped in London, with the exclusion of Simon, might not have been a surprise since they have dropped to being fringe players.

The Super Eagles will play their first match against Croatia on Friday, June 16, 2018.
