STEPHEN KESHI: We Need CHIBUZOR OKONKWO NowBeijing Olympic silver medalist Chibuzor Okonkwo's media campaign to be invited to the Super Eagles, who are preparing for the 2013 African Cup of Nations, has yielded dividend.

Allnigeriasoccer.com's Editorial Staff can confirm reports in the local media that Okonkwo has joined the Eagles camp in Abuja.

''I can confirm that Chibuzor Okonkwo has been invited to join the squad. His invitation came late, but we need him (Chibuzor Okonkwo,ed) now,'' coach Stephen Keshi told allnigeriasoccer.com in a telephone conversation on Wednesday evening.

Okonkwo's last international appearance was against Argentina in Abuja on September 6, 2011. Since then, he has been ignored for selection by the National Team handlers.

Early this month, Okonkwo was linked with a move to Finnish club FC Inter Turku, but the transfer did not materialize.
