Joel Obi will be in the Super Eagles squad when they regroup next year for two high profile games in the month of March next year as part of their preparations for the World Cup in Russia.
Obi who has caught the eyes of coach Gernot Rohr with his scintillating performances for Torino this season after overcoming the numerous injuries which has slowed down his career in recent times.
The midfielder has so far scored two Serie A goals with two assists to his name, a form which has earned him a recall to the team he last played for three years ago.
Owngoalnigeria.com gathered that Rohr has been largely impressed with his abilities to dictate play from deep, and also the fact that he is ever present for the team in the Serie A as long as he is fit.
His invitation will increase the options available to Rohr in midfield, one area where the team are well stocked but also need options to key players particularly Wilfred Ndidi.
