Coach Manu Garba have decided to give Jinadu, Oluwabusola and Ebiowei a chance in the team after impressing in the training camp held in Abuja.

With only three goalkeepers named on the provisional roster, it is a certainty that the Bournemouth and West Ham starlets will make the final 21-player squad to be unveiled next week, barring an injury during the the preparatory period in Sao Paulo.
