Omeruo Gets Late Eagles Call-Up For Algeria, Argentina Clashes

By Johnny Edward: Kasimpasa defender Kenneth Omeruo has been handed a late call-up to the Super Eagles for Friday’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Algeria and the international friendly against Argentina on November 14, reports.‎

Omeruo who was placed on standby for the matches prior to the injuries to three key players, is expected to arrive in Rabat Morocco on Monday, where the team is training ahead of the final 2018 World Cup qualifier in Algeria on Friday.

“Omeruo is back, for the games against Algeria and Argentina,” the source said.

The Super Eagles will be lodged at the Farah Rabat Hotel during their camping in Morocco.

The defender last featured for the Super Eagles in their 1-1 draw against Senegal in an international friendly in London.

Odion Ighalo has pulled out from the game, while Ogenyi Onazi and Moses Simon currently injured are poised to pull out of the Eagles forthcoming matches.


  • This player is good enough again for supper eagles. He has not developed to get the current level of team. It was his floppy performance that cost us a place in 2015 AFCON.

  • Oya omeruo go there and play ur rubbish

  • He hasn’t improved

  • I think he will do well to prove us wrong, let’s give him a chance

    Rohr cannot say no one in the local league can replace Ogenyi Onazi. This over dependence on aging Onazi may cause us some serious problems.

  • Moses 1 year ago

    Not these guy again, pls Rorh I don’t want these guy in the Eagles anymore he has cost us enough errors
