The top scorer in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Stephen Odey will train with the Super Eagles of Nigeria during their camp in France.
Odey is expected in the country later today, and will apply for his visa at the French embassy, something he failed to do last week due to the trip he made to Denmark, where he attended trials with FC Midtjylland.
19 year old Odey has 14 goals this season in the NPFL for modest team MFM, and will join the Eagles in training alongside strike partner at MFM Sikiru Olatunbosun as part of the home based players picked by Rohr.
Other local lads called up to the camp in France include FC Ifeanyi Uba shot stopper Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Akwa United forward Alhassan Ibrahim popularly referred to as Mu’azam.
Bar Odey, the others have already submitted their documents for visa processing at the French Embassy for the camp, which help the team prepare for their AFCON 2019 Qualifiers against South Africa.
The team will also move from their camp on the 26th of May to take on the small island of Corsica in a friendly game, all in preparation for the South Africa game.
