Egyptian Premier League top scorer Stanley Ohawuchi is in line for a shock call up to the Super Eagles according to leaks gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com.

Ohawuchi is currently under consideration for a call up to the Nigeria senior team ahead of Nigeria’s back to back AFCON 2017 qualifiers against Egypt.

We gathered his fine form in the Egyptian Premier league where Egypt are expected to pick most of their players for the game brought up his name during discussions on potential call ups for the game by the technical crew of the team.

His knowledge of the Egyptians is also giving him an edge ahead of the crunch tie which Nigeria need at least four points over the two legged clash to stay in the hunt for an automatic spot in next year Africa cup of Nations.

The former Nigeria youth international worked with interim Super Eagles coach Samson Siasia at U-20 level and during his reign as coach of Heartland in 2009.

Only yesterday he was voted the best foreign player in Egypt for the year 2015 and this season his form for Wadi Degla has lead to speculations he might be heading for a big money move in the summer.
