Coach Bronson Weir has named his training squad for Africa Cup Sevens North Tournament to be held in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire on 15-16 September, 2018.
The team will feature a total of 17 players
Camp will starts from 5 – 12 September.
The former Ugandan handler said, “In this Black Stallions squad, we have an extremely talented group of players with the right mix of experience and youth. I’m looking forward to seeing what the team can produce in Abidjan next weekend.”
On the 3 foreign players invited, Weir believes they will make a huge difference.
“Temi Okenla got injured during a preseason match with his club and is out. Experienced playmaker and captain; Azeez Ladipo is also a doubt due to injury he sustained on Saturday at training. We have another great playmaker; Nuhu Samaila. 
However, we will not lack pace at all as we still have our wing men Chistian Ogar and Onoru Jatto. Finally, Joseph Mogaji, Yannick Mukoro and Isaac Sani will bring in power play onto the squad.”
