Super Eagles Call-up Likely For Akinyemi In September – Rohr
Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr, says he may invite FK Ventspils of Latvia free-scoring striker, Adeleke Akinyemi for Nigeria’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Seychelles on September 7 in Victoria, Seychelles.
Rohr told girondins4ever.com, an unofficial website of French Lique 1 side, Girondins Bordeaux after watching the Nigerian score his seventh goal in five Europa League qualifying games against Bordeaux early this month that the 20 year old Akinyemi has the qualities to play for the Super Eagles.
“I was not able to see him play before the World Cup because he was an academy player who left for Europe without playing in the Nigerian youth teams.
“I saw his statistics (scored 23 goals in 37 league games), and I thought I had to look at him. And indeed, he was good. He has qualities, I may invite him one of these days, perhaps for the next game,” said Rohr who advised Bordeaux should sign him.
“I think he is worth taking a look at. He is very young and will not cost Bordeaux much money.
“He has huge room for improvement. He is powerful, he gets inside, he scores goals. It’s rare to have all these qualities in a player.”
