IK Start midfielder, Afeez Aremu, has been handed a late invitation to Nigeria’s U-20 team, the Flying Eagles ahead of Saturday’s 2019 U-20 Africa Cup of Nations second leg Final Round qualifier against Mauritania in Lagos, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The 18 year old who has trained twice with the team in Lagos is in line to make his debut for the team ahead of the crucial game against Mauritania on Saturday.
Aremu has scored three goals in 18 league games for his Norwegian side, IK Start since joining the club in March.
“He (Aremu) is in the squad for the game and may likely play,” a camp source told CSN.
“He joined up with the team in training on Tuesday after a letter was sent to his club seeking his release for the crucial game.”
The Flying Eagles played a 1-1 draw away in Nouakchott, Mauritania last Saturday in the first leg. A goalless draw will see Aigbogun’s men advance to the 2019 U20 AFCON.
