Ahead of the friendly game at the Dnipro Arena, 19 Super Eagles players reported to camp on Sunday.

Super Eagles boss Gernot Rohr had initially named a 22-man squad for the friendly game but a couple of players have withdrawn from the game. 

Kenneth Omeruo, Tyronne Ebuehi, Henry Onyekuru, Wilfred Ndidi and Ahmed Musa have all pulled out of the friendly game. 

Omuero pulled out over work permit issues in Spain while Ndidi and Ebuehi opted out to rest after recovering from injuries. 

Onyekuru is still trying to get the resident permit in Monaco after a switch in the summer while Musa has pulled out following an injury he suffered while in action for his Suadi side Al-Nassr. 

Rohr has called up PAOK midfielder Estiti place of Ndidi, Locomotive Moscow’s defender Idowu for Ebuehi, Bonaventure for Musa and Maja for Onyekuru.
