Ikeme missed couple of games for the Super Eagles of Nigeria including the 0-2 defeat against Bafana Bafana of South Africa in an AFCON 2019 qualifier due to injury and his return will be a big relief to Eagles manager Gernot Rohr as he prepares​ the team for upcoming 2018 World Cup qualifier against the indomitable Lions​ of Cameroon in August.

Ikeme has made 9 caps for Nigeria since making his debut in 2016.
