Nigeria caretaker coach Salisu Yusuf will lead a Nigeria league selected team to a series of matches in Spain that will feature top La Liga sides Valencia and Malaga in August.

The NPFL All Stars selected side will play in the Carranza & La Liga World Tournament and also against Valencia CF.

For the Carranza and LaLiga World Tournament, the NPFL All Stars will play Malaga CF on August 12 and 13, but before then, will play their first game in Spain against Valencia CF on August 10.

Yusuf will be assisted by Wikki Tourists coach Abdu Maikaba and Imama Amapakabo from Rangers, whose teams are leading the Nigeria league.

Imama assisted Yusuf for the recent Super Eagles friendlies against Mali and Luxembourg in Europe.

Yusuf, 54, has worked with the home-based Eagles for the recent CHAN in Rwanda and has previously handled the country’s top clubs Enyimba and Kano Pillars.

Nigeria will feature in the La Liga invitational tournament based on a recent pact the League Management Company (LMC) signed with the Spanish topflight.

A squad of 23 players will be drawn from the domestic league for this competition.
