Two Nigeria-Eligible Youngsters Named In Tottenham's Champions League Roster
Two players eligible to represent the Nigeria National Teams have been included in Tottenham Hotspur's Champions League roster for the knockout rounds of the competition.

Defender Timothy Eyoma and midfielder Luke Amos have been registered by the London club on their List B.

Amos is unlikely to feature for Spurs this season after rupturing an anterior cruciate knee ligament while playing for the club's U23 team in a Premier League 2 fixture against Blackburn Rovers on September 28.

The 21-year-old had been tipped to make a first team breakthrough prior to his spell on the sidelines and was part of the match day squads for Premier League matches against Newcastle United and Manchester United in August 2018.

Eyoma, 19, is also nearing the first team with a solitary appearance in the Premier League while he was an unused substitute for League and FA Cup matches.

The two players traveled with the first team for their pre-season tour of the United States and both made the starting line-up in a 1-0 win against Milan in the International Champions Cup.

Tottenham resume their Champions League campaign against Borussia Dortmund on February 13, with the first leg taking place at Wembley Stadium.
