Olarenwaju Kayode Knocking On Super Eagles Door With Both Hands, Scores Against Roma Again

Olarenwaju Kayode is making a case for inclusion in the Nigeria senior national team after scoring for the second consecutive game against Roma in the Europa League although his team Austria Wien lost 2-4 at home to the Italian giants.

Kayode scored a late equaliser against Roma in Italy a fortnight ago when both teams clashed in Roma to help his team draw 3-3. He followed it up with a goal two minutes into the reverse tie in Austria.

Although he ended up on the losing side, his goal scoring form could earn him a call up to the Nigeria senior national team, with new coach Gernot Rohr running the rule over him.

Rohr has lamented the quality of the league he plays in but his goals in the Europa League could swing the manager into giving him a chance. Already he has nine goals this season with five coming in the Europa League.

A Super Eagles call up won’t be long, if he maintains his present scoring streak, as Rohr is keen on giving all players equal opportunities when the team starts playing friendly games next year.
