Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro has handed late call-ups to Godwin Saviour and Ebube Duru Saviour for the team’s friendly against Algeria, reports Pnosports.com.

Injuries to the trio of Ahmed Musa, Samuel Chukwueze and Emmanuel Dennis forced Peseiro to hand late invitations to Saviour and Duru.

Dennis was invited as a replacement Henry Onyekuru but he will now miss out of the game.

Forward Saviour plays for Portuguese SuperLiga club, Casa Pia.

The 26-year-old has represented Nigeria at the U-17, U-20 and U-23 levels.

Duru, who plays for Nigeria Professional Football League champions, Rivers United has been handed his maiden  call-up to the Super Eagles.

The left-back was part of the Rivers United side that  lost 1-0 to Watanga FC of Liberia in a CAF Champions League fixture on Sunday.
