The performance of Kelechi Nwakali in yesterday’s 2-3 friendly loss the Super Eagles B team suffered in the hands of Atletico Madrid has led to talks of a possible inclusion in the Super Eagles provisional squad for the World Cup.
Nwakali who is on the books of English Premier League giants Arsenal scored a spectacular goal to crown his impressive all round display during the entire duration of the game.
Watched by coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Gernot Rohr, the coach could be tempted to add him to his squad if one of the 30 players in his provisional list suffers an injury.
Per FIFA rules, a player not on the provisional list of a country heading to the World Cup can be included if one of the players in the list suffers an injury ruling him out of the tournament.
A replacement can be added to the pool and it is only possible 24 hours before the first game of the tournament which starts in June. Meaning bar injury to any of the players in the Eagles list, Nwakali will not be added to the Eagles squad.
