“The other trainer (Pionetti) is in Spain with (Francis) Uzoho on special permission of his club.

“We also expect such for Dele Alampasu and Ezenwa.”

The Eagles have faced a goalkeeping crisis after No 1 choice Carl Ikeme was diagnosed with acute Leukemia.

Both Akpeyi and Ezenwa have since shared the Eagles goalkeeping duties with youngster Uzoho thrust into the deep-end in the country’s last three friendlies.
