  • This guy has been out for a,while now. He hasn’t played any games since his recovery. He isn’t match fit. I dont think inviting him now will be a good idea. Let him play some games and get back to match fitness first. Even If he misses the 2 qualifying games, there will be other games in the future. We can do the job with the available defenders at our disposal.

    I don’t think this is any boost. Seems more like another “wahala” looming because Coach Rohr will be forced to fulfilling his promise of playing him by force since he switched from Germany to Nigeria hence Benching Ola Aina and Ebuehi worthy of playing the RB role for him. He should please regain match fitness and concentrate on his club for now.
