Super Eagles gaffer Gernot Rohr has made a late call-up for Bordeaux striker Josh Maja ahead of an international friendly against Ukraine.
The 20-year-old who is eligible to represent the national teams of both England and Nigeria was invited to train with the Super Eagles in London two years ago for a proposed friendly against Burkina Faso but failed to turn up due to club commitments.
Maja has impressed in the current season, scoring against Montpellier on match day two which earned him a spot in the U21 Team of the Week for Europe’s top five leagues.
Meanwhile, the NFF are still in talks with Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham over a switch to Nigeria.
