Seyi Ojo will likely make the Super Eagles squad for the dead rubber AFCON 2019 Qualifiers tie against Seychelles in March next year if his papers for switching his future at international level from England to Nigeria comes through, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.
Ojo has already voiced his intention to represent Nigeria at senior level despite playing over 40 games for England at youth level and the Nigeria Football Federation ( NFF) are already handling his documentation.
The process won’t be straight forward because it requires various signatures from the FA’s of the countries under the United Kingdom unlike in other countries where it’s solely the job of the FA of the country.
On loan from Liverpool to Reims of France, Ojo put in a commendable shift against Marseille yesterday lasting 85 minutes as they battle to pick a 0-0 draw away from home from what was a tight fixture on paper for them.
He will add to the options available to Nigeria on the flanks as he is more adept at cutting in with his left foot due to the fact that he mainly plays from the right, same as new rave of the moment for the senior national team of Nigeria Samuel Chukwueze.
