Impressed Super Eagles coach Salisu Yusuf has picked Rangers stars Bobby Clement, Christian Madu, Chisom Egbuchulam as well as Bernard Ovoke from Rivers United to be considered for the next training camp.

Mubarak Umar also caught the eye of the Eagles coach, who also said he hopes to have another look at teammate Idris Sabo during the on-going NPFL Super 4.

“Chisom Egbuchulam is already part of the Super Eagles and he justified this with his performance against Rivers United,” Yusuf said.

Egbuchulam, who scored 16 goals last season for champions Rangers, was called up by the Eagles for a 2018 World Cup qualifier in Zambia in October.

The Eagles coach was also full of praise for the standard exhibited by both Rangers and Rivers United on Wednesday night.

“The match was played on high intensity and both clubs will be worthy representatives of the country in next year’s CAF Champions League, if they can sustain such standard,” he said.
