Nigeria's national side has replaced Napoli's striker Victor Osimhen.
Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) confirmed that that Osimhen has been 'excused' from attending national duty, with Onuachu getting a call after a brillant start of seven goals in seven games for Genk in Belgium.
“Victor Osimhen has been excused from Super Eagles’ games against Algeria and Tunisia. His replacement is Paul Onuachu," the NFF posted.
Nigeria will face Tunisia and Algeria on 9 and 13 October 2020.
