Speaking exclusively to allnigeriasoccer.com, Agali who is chief scout of the Eagles said:

"The Super Eagles coach is happy with the players he is working with presently so that is great.

"The issue of new players coming into the team is a technical one and I cannot speak for my boss.

Agali joined other former Nigeria internationals to take part in a novelty game ahead of the 4pm kickoff between Nigeria and Seychelles at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba.
