Super Eagles’ technical adviser Gernot Rohr has called up 22 players for the camping programme in France and the international friendly match against Corsica.

The three-time African champions will open camp in Corsica on May 24 and then play against the senior team two days later, before moving to Paris for the second phase of the camping programme ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa.
