U23 AFCON qualifiers: Nwakali to join Nigeria team for return leg clash against Sudan

Kelechi Nwakali will join the camp of Nigeria's Dream Team for the return leg clash of the U23 AFCON qualifiers against Sudan.

Nwakali joined Spanish LaLiga 2 side Huesca on European transfer deadline day from Arsenal and has returned home to help his country.

Nigeria suffered a 1-0 defeat to Sudan in the first leg played on Wednesday at the Al Merreikh Stadium in Omdurman.

The return leg is scheduled for the Stephe Keshi Stadium in Asaba on Tuesday.

Nwakali’s availability will be a massive boost for the Imama Amapakabo led boys after his stellar performance in the Dream Team VII last home outing against Libya where he bagged two assists in the team’s 4-0 win.
