Head coach of Nigeria’s U-23 team, Samson Siasia, has added Chelsea forward, Victor Moses and Norway-based defender, William Troost-Ekong, to his provisional list for the 2016 Olympics.
Moses, who spent last season on loan at West Ham, is 25 and will be an option as one of the three overage players Siasia is allowed to pick.
Troost-Ekong is however 22 and will qualify as a squad player.
Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi, Watford’s Odion Ighalo and Ahmed Musa of CSKA Moscow, were originally designated as the three overage players for the Games.
However, Siasia has broadened his options and has also included goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi.
