Nigeria Rio 2016 star Stanley Amuzie has received the all clear to make his debut for his loan side FC Lugano after his International Transfer Certificate (ITC) came through few days ago.
Amuzie joined the team from Italian Serie A side Sampdoria in the summer on a season long loan deal after failing to break into the first team of the Serie A side.
Since joining the team on loan in the summer, his debut has been held up by issues surrounding his ITC, but the papers came through yesterday, making him eligible to represent the team.
Owngoalnigeria.com exclusively gathered that he is in the matchday squad for their weekend league game against FC Zurich, and he could make his debut in the game.
He joined Sampdoria after excelling with the Nigeria U23 team, where his fine performances earned him two senior national team caps for Nigeria. Both coming in the back to back ill fated AFCON 2017 Qualifiers.
Known for his pace down the flank and abilities to whip in crosses, he was ever present for the Nigeria team at the Rio 2016 Olympics where they won bronze.
Last season he was restricted to games for the Primavera side although he made the first team squad for some league matches, but he didn’t get to play.
