They are strong indications that newly appointed coach of the Nigeria U-20 team Emmanuel Amuneke will call up the duo of Chidiebere and Kelechi Nwakali to his team in their bid to qualify for the Africa Youth Championship and World Youth Championship.

Chidiebere Nwakali is still eligible for the Nigeria U-20 and the coach who is looking for experience players so as not to make same mistake like Manu Garba did at the last World cup has pencilled him down for na invitation.

Amuneke is very much aware of the talent of Chidiebere Nwakali whose career has stalled since the 2013 U-17 WYC where he shone like a million stars as Nigeria raced to the title.

Presently out on loan to IK Start of Norway from Manchester City he could possibly line up in midfield alongside his younger brother Kelechi who recently won the U-17 WYC most valuable player that saw him move to Arsenal.

However they are not expected to be among the players to resume camping next week as they could possibly join the team later on if not few days to their qualifying game.
