Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, has named a 25-man home-based squad to face Mexico in an international friendly at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on July 4.

Enyimba goalkeeper John Noble and forward Anayo Iwuala and a recalled Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Heartland keeper, top the list of the players invited to camp for the friendly.

Also invited are Rivers United defender Ifeanyi Anaemena, Enyimba midfielder Ekundayo Ojo and forwards Ibrahim Olawoyin (Enugu Rangers) and Stephen Jude (Kwara United).

The players are expected to report at the Serob Legacy Hotel, Wuse, Abuja on June 22 with their travel documents. Only 22 of them will travel to the United States of America for the glamour friendly.

It is expected that the LA Coliseum, a 77,500-capacity facility will be at full capacity for the friendly match.

However, Mexico will be without legendary LA Galaxy striker Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernández.

Mexico manager, Tata Martino, named Napoli forward Hirving Lozano in a 45-man provisional squad to face Panama on June 30 and the Eagles.
