Eagles coach Gernot Rohr released a 25-man squad for a planned camping programme in France and the friendly match against a Corsica team later in May.

Odey, Olatubosun, Ibrahim and Ikechukwu Ezenwa of IfeanyiUbah are the four home-based players listed by Rohr for the camping. Odey is currently the Nigeria Professional Football League’s top scorer with 14 goals, while   Ibrahim has 10 goals.

Reacting to the invitation of Odey, Olatunbosun and Ibrahim, Ekpo advised the players to seize the opportunity in order to stand a chance of getting invited in future.

“They should not allow their invitation into the Super Eagles get into their heads and make them lose concentration, rather the invitation should spur them to do more so that they don’t get dropped after first call up,” former Nigeria midfielder Ekpo said
