According to ANAEDOONLINE.NG, Valentine Ozornwafor has been called up for Nigeria’s international exhibition match against Algeria on September 27 in Oran.
This was confirmed in a statement posted on the website of his French club Sochaux.
The 23-year-old was brought in to replace Semi Ajayi and Kenneth Omeruo, who were both injured and were ruled out of the game, as they were on a season-long loan from Turkish club Galatasaray to Sochaux.
“Valentine Ozornwafor has been called up to Nigeria’s squad for the upcoming international break,” the statement reads.
“The Sochaux defender is called to join his national team on September 19, with which he currently has three selections.”
Meanwhile, Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro, will also be without quintet Victor Osimhen, Sadiq Umar, Jamilu Collins and Akinkunmi Amoo for the friendly due to injuries.
According to reports, Peseiro has been forced to invite several uncapped players for the friendly against Algeria due to injuries to his top stars.
Belgium-based duo Alhassan Yusuf and Raphael Onyedika are reportedly on his squad list for the friendly against the Fennecs.
Both players have been in splendid form for their respective teams Royal Antwerp and Club Brugges.
The former Porto coach is expected to announce his squad for the friendly this week.
