likes of Chidozie Awaziem, Mikel Agu with the main team, while Musa Yahaya, Chiderah Ezeh, Isah Musa,
Fildelis Kuku and Kelechi Nwakali are with the B team.

league title. His senior debuts where made with the B-team, in the Segunda Liga.

He was included in Gernot Rohr’s 23-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, being an unused
player as the tournament ended in group stage exit.
