Interim coach of the Super Eagles, Samson Siasia, has sent six players home from the team’s camp in Abuja.
The affected players are Prince Aggrey, Chris Madaki, Hassan Ya’u, Ezekiel Bassey, Oke Ogagotewho and Bright Onyedikachi.
“I have asked them to go because they did not measure up to the standard we want,” Siasia explained.
“They have not shown enough verve to be in the Super Eagles, so we have asked them to go back to their respective clubs and work harder to be recalled next time.
“Those that are left must work harder to remain with the team. National team’s demands are greater than club’s, so if you are invited to the Super Eagles, we expect to see the best of everyone.
“Those sent packing could be recalled next time if they continue to improve in their clubs, but for now, they have fallen short of our expectation.”
