 Rohr To Run The Rule Over Nwakali As Ex-Arsenal Star Makes Full La Liga Debut Vs Real Madrid
Allnigeriasoccer.com can exclusively report that former Arsenal midfielder Kelechi Nwakali will make his full La Liga debut on Saturday afternoon when SD Huesca take on the champions Real Madrid at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stéfano, barring an injury in the pre-match warm up.
 
The former Golden Eaglets and Flying Eagles skipper has appeared in two matches in the Spanish top-flight so far this season, with both coming off the bench against Villarreal and Real Sociedad, logging 47 minutes in total.

Based on SD Huesca's last training session, everything is pointing to the fact that manager Michel has selected Nwakali for a midfield role against Los Blancos.

He was among the 22 Azulgranas players that traveled to the Spanish capital on Friday but young Nigerian striker Kevin Omoruyi has not been summoned for this one.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has omitted Marvin Akinlabi from his matchday squad to take on their visitors from Aragon.

Nigeria manager Gernot Rohr and his chief scout Tunde Adelakun are believed to keeping tabs on the performance of Nwakali in Spain considering that he was placed on standby for the upcoming games against Sierra Leone and this is the perfect opportunity to assess the midfielder against one of the best teams in the world.
