Wolverhampton Wanderers-Owned Striker Reports For Nigeria Duty Ahead Of U23 AFCONPublished: October 29, 2019
Allnigeriasoccer.com understands that Wolverhampton Wanderers-owned striker Bright Enobakhare has reported for international duty in Abuja ahead of the Nigeria U23s trip to Egypt for the 2019 U23 Africa Cup of Nations.
Coach Imama Amapakabo has bolstered the Dream Team VII squad by handing a late call-up to Enobakhare due to the unavailability of several foreign-based professionals.
Allnigeriasoccer.com exclusively reported last month that the Benin-City born attacker has pledged his international future to Nigeria even though he is eligible to represent England, and was being considered for the U23 AFCON.
It had been feared that he wasn't going to be released to the Nigeria Football Federation but Wolves and Wigan Athletic sanctioned his trip to Africa despite the tournament not included on FIFA calendar for international matches.
Should he feature in any of the Nigeria U23 matches in Egypt, the 21-year-old Enobakhare will become cap-tied to the African giants.
The pacy and physical striker made his first team debut for Wolverhampton Wanderers at the age of seventeen.
