“I just have to get an invitation to play for them and I will get the Romanian passport. I have all the documents that will enable me to be issued with their passport.

“I have a meeting with the Romanian Federation tomorrow to continue discussions on playing for the national team,”Kehinde Fatai told allnigeriasoccer.com in a telephone conversation on Friday afternoon.
