Nigeria have included Kano Pillars's Junior Lokosa and Crotone's Simeon Nwankwo in their 30-man preliminary squad for the 2018 World Cup.
The 26-year-old is a surprise inclusion after a breakthrough season in Italy where he scored seven goals, including an overhead kick against Juventus.
The three-time African champions reached the Round of 16 in 1994, 1998 and 2014 but exited the 2002 and 2010 tournaments in the group stages.
Kano Pillars forward Lokosa recording 18 goals as at Match day 21 is getting his first call up as well as Crotone of Italy striker Nwankwo.
Eagles coach Gernot Rohr kept faith in the quartet of Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Dele Ajiboye, Daniel Akpeyi and youngster Francis Uzoho in the goalkeeping department.
Other forwards that made the list include: Moses Simon, Victor Moses, Alex Iwobi, Odion Ighalo, Ahmed Musa and Kelechi Iheanacho.
The defenders include: William Troost-Ekong, Leon Balogun, Ola Aina, Kenneth Omeruo, Bryan Idowu, Chidozie Awaziem, Abdullahi Shehu, Elderson Echiejile, Tyronne Ebuehi and Stephen Eze.
But missing from the 30-man selection released on Monday are Brown Ideye, Dele Alampasu, Anthony Nwakaeme, Henry Onyekuru, Victor Osimhen and Kayode Olanrewaju.
They go to Russian Federation afterwards for the World Cup finals.
