Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi, has said the invitation of on-loan Arsenal midfielder Kelechi Nwakali by head coach coach Gernot Rohr, is a step in the right direction.
Nwakali who is on loan at Porto B, was included in Nigeria’s squad for their African Cup of Nations Qualifiers against Seychelles on September 9.
He had impressed Rohr in a friendly game against Atletico Madrid, where he scored in the 3-2 defeat.
“I was a little bit younger when I broke into the senior national team of Nigeria and that helped me in my career. My early introduction into the national team also means I didn’t look out of place when I became a senior player.
“Rohr has his eyes on the future despite the pressure on him to succeed in the immediate. Nwakali is a future project and hopefully he will come good because he has the ability to be succeed in a not too distant future,” Mikel Obi told OwnGoalNigeria.
