Exclusive: STEPHEN KESHI Scouts Hot Commodity SAVIOR FIDELISNigeria boss Stephen Keshi has scouted the Taraba United prolific forward Savior Fidelis with a view of drafting him to the Super Eagles, allnigeriasoccer.com can exclusively report.

Fidelis is one of the most potent forwards in the Nationwide League, Nigeria's second - tier, and has bagged 12 goals in 12 games so far.

Tipped by his scouting network, Keshi decided to make the long trip to Kaduna to run the rule over the 23-year-old forward. He wasn't disappointed as Fidelis netted a brace against Taraba United in a league match.

''Coach Stephen Keshi was impressed with my performance. We were in contact before he traveled to the United States for holidays. He said he would invite me to the National Team. I had expected to be called up for the World Cup and African Cup of Nations qualifiers, but unfortunately I did not make the roster when it was announced. I am positive my time will come,'' Fidelis told allnigeriasoccer.com in a telephone conversation.

With his form in the Nationwide League, maybe it's time for Fidelis to continue his career abroad, possibly in Western Europe.

''I am being pestered by several foreign agents who are demanding for my curriculum vitae and videos. I am not paying attention to them. Since I joined Taraba United in the second stanza of the league, I know I am in good hands. Tijani Babaginda played the game at the highest level. He is offering me good advice. When the time is ripe for me to leave the shores of the country, we shall make a decision,'' adds Fidelis.
