Former Nigeria youth international Olarenwaju Kayode, who is in good goal scoring form for Austrian side, Austria Wien is very much in the plans of manager of the Nigeria senior national team Gernot Rohr.

The former ASEC Mimosas goal king has been consistent in front of goal for Austria Wien both in the continental and domestic scene.

In the league he has three goals from eleven games, in addition to the 13 he scored last season, which was his debut season after moving from Israeli side Maccabi Netanya.

His fine form in the Europa League has seen him scored four goals including the equaliser against Roma, in the last round of Europa League game. And in the domestic cup he has two goals to his name.

However, while he is well on course to gatecrash the Super Eagles team, he has little or no chances of making the squad for the game against Algeria, as the has picked his forwards for the World Cup 2018 qualifiers game.

Kayode alongside other players on the radar of the manager are all lined up to play friendly games for the team next year, before the commencement of the World Cup 2018 qualifiers next year.
