Super Eagles injury woes opens door for Ozornwafor Call up


The growing injury list in the Super Eagles has opened doors for fringe players ahead of this month’s friendly against Algeria, and Valentine Ozornwafor is one of such beneficiary.

Ozornwafor, according to his Ligue 2 club FC Sochaux, has been invited for the friendly against Algeria.

The CB who has made only 3 appearances this season last featured for Nigeria last year, where he got his senior debut against Cameroon in a double header friendly.



The 23 year-old will provide Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro, a viable option with the withdrawal of Kenneth Omeruo and Oluwasemilogo Ajayi through injuries.

Nigeria will face 2019 African Champions, Algeria, on September 27 in Oran.
