Super Eagles Midfielder Named In FC Midtjylland Traveling Squad To Face Liverpool
Nigeria international Frank Onyeka is in contention to make his second start in this season's UEFA Champions League group stage in Tuesday night's meeting between former champions Liverpool and FC Midtjylland at Anfield, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.

The defensive midfielder was spotted boarding a Great Dane Airlines flight to Liverpool on Monday morning.

Onyeka's Champions League debut was one to forget as FC Midtjylland were hammered 4-0 by Italian visitors Atalanta.

If named in the starting lineup vs Liverpool as expected, it would be an important opportunity to put himself in the shop window amid speculation linking him with a departure from the Danish champions in the near future.

The FC Ebedei product made headlines last season after helping FC Midtjylland win the Danish Superliga for only the third time in their history, and was rewarded with a maiden call-up to their Super Eagles for their games in October.

Onyeka started all the four matches played by The Wolves in the qualifying and playoff rounds of the Champions League, and got on the scoresheet against Slavia Prague while providing an assist vs Ludogorets.
