Ukraine vs Nigeria: Gernot Rohr reveals another London-born striker to join Super Eagles

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has revealed that Bordeaux striker Josh Maja could receive a late call to the Super Eagles team before his next friendly against Ukraine.

The 20-year-old born in London has a British passport but is not provisionally limited to England, which means he is free to make his international debut for Nigeria without submitting a request to FIFA to change his association.

Rohr told Le Point Gold: “I ate with Samuel Kalu and Josh Maja since we have the second Nigerian in Bordeaux, he is eligible for Nigeria. I already started talking to him about the selection.

“We talked together, and he is quite positive because he hasn’t played for U20 with England.” You can play friendly matches, but you can do it just because you didn’t play for England U20, as is the case with many others we have on our radar. “For Maja, it would be easier to have it, I have many attackers, but I can select it.

“We’re going to play a game in Ukraine, and they told me it was too late to get a visa for players who don’t have a European passport, but they have it because it’s also English, so they could eventually join us.” “You may select it to go to Ukraine, it is possible.”
