Former captain of the Nigeria Under-17 and 20 national team Musa Mohammed is in danger of losing out on a place in the Nigeria senior national team, according to reports gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com.
Mohammed made his competitive debut for Nigeria in the 2017 AFCON qualifiers dead rubber tie which Nigeria won 1-0 against Tanzania, in the first game of new manager Gernot Rohr as coach of the Super Eagles.
The full back lasted the entire duration of the game and was applauded by the new coach for his performance in the tie. But reports indicates he could be axed from the team unless his club form improves.
Rohr wants all his players to be regulars at their club side but that is presently not the case with Mohammed who has struggled to break into the first team of his turkish side. A situation that could cost him his national team spot.
Since moving to Turkey last summer, he is yet to make a league appearance for modest side Istanbul Basaksehir. He has as a matter of fact made just 5 appearances for the team, all in cup games.
The 19 year old didn’t play a single minute of the club pre season games and after three round of games in Turkey he is yet to be named in the match day squad.
