Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has included Kelechi Iheanacho in the Super Eagles squad.
The Manchester City forward was initially excluded from the 23-man squad announced for the World Cup qualifier against Swaziland.
But Oliseh apparently had a change of heart just few hours later to add the exceptionally talented youngster.
The Nigeria Foorball Federation announced Iheanacho’s inclusion, writing on Twitter: “Coach @SundayOOliseh invites @MCFC striker Kelechi Iheanacho (@67Kelechi) for Swaziland! List now 24.”
And according to Oliseh, on the Super Eagles Twitter handle, Iheanacho’s performance against Crystal Palace in the Capital One made him invite the youngster.
“I initially called up 23 but after seeing repeat of Manchester City versus Crystal Palace Capital One Cup, I’m adding Iheanacho to the list.”
Iheanacho was voted as the man of the match on Wednesday night after scoring one and assisting two other goals in City’s 5-1 League Cup victory over Crusyal Palace.
