Holland-based defender Kenneth Omeruo is excited about his invitation to the Super Eagles’ camp and will join the team’s training camp in Faro, Portugal, on December 29.
“Kenneth is very excited with this opportunity and he will join the Eagles camp on December 29,” a top representative of the player said, according to MTNFootball.com.
“It’s a just reward of all his hard work and being his first Eagles invitation he hopes to make the most of it,” the rep added.
Omeruo, 19 and a highly promising player, is expected to play his final game of the year for Dutch club ADO Den Haag at home against NEC on December 22 and after a week-long holiday in Nigeria will join the Eagles in Faro.
The Nigerian Under-20 star is on loan from Chelsea to Dutch club ADO Den Haag and he has become the mainstay of the team playing at right full position even though he is better known as a central defender.
After the stinker Godfrey Oboabona posted against Liberia in Monrovia in September in that position, coach Stephen Keshi is shopping for a player who can best play that role at the AFCON.
