Anorthosis Famagusta of Cyprus defender, Shehu Abdullahi, has expressed his delight after being invited to the Super Eagles squad for the camping programme in France and friendly game against Corsica senior national team later in May, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
On Monday, coach Gernot Rohr released a 25-man squad ahead of the training camp and friendly game with Abdullahi making the list.
Reacting to the invitation, the Rio 2016 Olympic Games bronze medal winner thanked his club fans and families for their support.
"Excited to be invited by Coach Gernot Rohr. Thanks Anorthosis FC. Friends, fans and family thanks for your amazing support. I'm honoured," Abdullahi wrote on his Twitter handle.
On Monday Shehu was in action for Anorthosis who lost 2-0 away to AEL in Cyprus' Championship title playoffs.
Anorthosis are currently bottom in the six-team play-offs table on 46 points and are not likely to make either the Champions League qualifying spot or the Europa League.
Shehu has made 28 appearances for Anorthosis in the league this season, scoring two goals.
