Levante rave of the moment Moses Simon has been recalled to the senior national team of Nigeria after returning back to full fitness from the injury which slowed down his start to life in Spain following his move from Gent of Belgium.
Simon missed out on selection for the World Cup due to an injury and a knock picked up in Levante’s final pre season game saw him miss the first three games of the team but he has since returned and played in their last two games.
Coach Gernot Rohr who is a firm admirer of the wing forward has wasted no time in handing him a recall to the team same as Shehu Abdullahi of Turkish side Bursaspor who missed the Seychelles game due to an injury.
Abdullahi will be up against Ola Aina for the right back spot with Aina who has been a regular for Serie A side Torino at right back as opposed to his previous role as a left back for Nigeria.
Aina and Shehu will now slug it out for who gets the nod to start in the back to back AFCON 2019 Qualifiers games against Libya in Uyo and Tunisia respectively, with Brian Idowu up against Jamilu Collins for the left back spot.
