Ifeanyi Matthew has been given the all clear to feature for his Norwegian side Lillestroem following his successful work permit application, Owngoalnigeria.com can reveal.
At the start of the month, Matthew concluded his move to the Norwegian side as exclusively reported by Owngoalnigeria.com two months ago but work permit issues delayed his debut.
However, he was issued the all clear last week and was even on the bench for Lillestroem in their 2-2 draw against Viking on Sunday, according to a source close to the player.
” He has been issued a work permit, he didn’t make his debut last weekend for tactical reasons I guess, but he was on the bench, he is fit and ready whenever he is called upon” He told Owngoalnigeria.com.
Widely regarded as one of the best players in the Nigeria Professional Football League this season, he was a member of the Nigeria Under-20 team to the last World Cup in New Zealand and made the senior B team that campaigned at the CHAN championship at the start of the year.
