Serbia friendly: Mikel Agu gets late call-up, Updates on Junior Ajayi, Oghenekaro Etebo


Bursapsor midfielder, Mikel Agu has received a last-minute call up to link up with the Super Eagles ahead of Tuesday’s friendly against Serbia in London.

Mikel Agu was initially left out of the 28-man roster for the two friendlies this month, with Standard Liege’s Uche Agbo selected ahead of the Porto loanee but has now been handed a chance to showcase his talents yet again with the national team.

Rohr also revealed post-match that Al Ahly SC frontman, Junior Ajayi will equally join the team in London for the friendly vs Serbia while UD Las Palmas’s Oghenekaro Etebo’s availability is not certain.

”We lost players through injury, we have other players who can arrive for our injured players especially Mikel Agu who will come. He plays in Turkey, same club with our captain today,” Rohr said.

”Also Junior Ajayi will come from Egypt, he had a problem with his visa but he will come. So we have these players.

”Perhaps Etebo too. Etebo was injured, we are waiting for the report from the doctors. If he comes, it will be nice for us and we will be able to have a good match against Serbia.

”I want to thank officials of the Polish Federation for the warm welcome they gave us and for the very good atmosphere we had in our hotel and also in our training session.”

Victor Moses’s solitary effort from the spot in the 61st minute proved the difference as Nigeria beat Poland in their first ever meeting yesterday in Wraclow.
