According to reports exclusively gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com, Sfaxien of Tunisia Nigerian midfileder Kingsley Sokari could be called up for Nigeria’s World Cup 2018 clash against Zambia.

We gathered he is one of the players under consideration by new coach Gernot Rohr in his bid to improve the midfield of the Super Eagles in their World Cup qualifiers campaign.

Last season, the 21 year old was one of the top performers for Sfaxien, playing a very big role in their second place finish in the league. It appears he was proposed to the coach by one of his assistants.

” Sokari is among the names under consideration by the new manager Gernot Rohr. He could be invited but for now he is one among several names on the tentative list of potential invitee” a source told Owngoalnigeria.com.

Sokari was heavily tipped to make the Nigeria Olympic team, but personal differences with the coach of the team Samson Siasia kept him out of the team for the business end of their campaign that resulted in the bronze medal at the games in Rio.
