Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr has named Galatasaray of Turkey forward Henry Onyekuru as replacement for injured Odion Ighalo.
The 21-year old will join other invited players for the all important 2019 AFCON qualifier against South Africa at FNB Stadium, Johannesburg.
Onyekuru made his senior debut for Nigeria in a 3–0 friendly win over Togo on 1 June 2017.
Onyekuru, 21, has scored twice in 12 appearances this season for Turkish club Galatasaray, where he is on loan from English side Everton.
It comes as the latest setback to the three-time African champions who have lost Wilfred Ndidi through suspension, and injuries to Ogenyi Onazi and goalkeeper Francis Uzoho.
Nigeria top Group E with nine points, one more than Bafana Bafana who sit in second position with eight points. Libya occupy third position with four points, while Seychelles, at the bottom, have one point.
The Super Eagles will aim to avenge their 2-0 loss to the Bafana Bafana in the reverse fixture at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium, Uyo last year.
