Nigeria: Nwakali Receives Call-Up to Nigeria U-23 Squad

Arsenal loanee Kelechi Nwakali is in contention to make his international debut for the Olympic Eagles in an U-23 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Libya at the Stade du 7 Mars, Ben Gardane on March 20.

The Porto B starlet is among the foreign-based professionals invited to beef up the squad by manager Imama Amapakabo.

Nwakali has vowed to join the Nigeria U-23s at their get-together in Abuja before they fly to Tunisia for the first leg match against the North Africans.

But the attacking midfielder would be racing against the clock as Porto B have a league match against Cova Piedade this coming Sunday, three days before the second round tie.

The ASJ Academy product was the Player of the Tournament at the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup and was captain of the Flying Eagles squad that failed to qualify for the U-20 World Cup in 2017.

Portuguese-based professionals Kelechi John and Tosin Kehinde are already training with the Dream Team with a view to a possible inclusion in the traveling party to Tunisia.
