Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively report that Amkar Perm Russian-Nigerian defender Brian Idowu has arrived the hotel of the Super Eagles ahead of their game against Argentina on Tuesday.
The Amkar-Perm left back teamed up with the team upon their arrival and will join them tomorrow when they are expected to have their first training session.
Idowu was placed on standby by coach Gernot Rohr for the game against Argentina but the left full back is now expected to train and fight for a spot in the team for the game on Tuesday.
He is expected to provide cover and give the coach more options in the left full back slot, which is currently one of the area coach Rohr is still searching for options bar regular left back Elderson Echiejile.
Last night Ola Aina manned the position but he is more comfortable playing as a right full back even though he didn’t do much wrong in yesterday’s game which ended 1-1.
