Enyimba Star Sokari Gets Late Eagles Call-up

Enyimba Star Sokari Gets Late Eagles Call-up

Exciting Enyimba midfielder Kingsley Sokari alias ‘Bobby’ has been handed a late call-up by Nigeria for the two remaining AFCON qualifiers against Congo and South Africa, officials announced.

Before now, assistant coach, Daniel Amokachi had said the player is as exciting as former Super Eagles skipper, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, a view also held by his other assistants, Hyandonou Valere and Ike Shorunmu.

But he also put a caveat. “We must allow our boss, Stephen Keshi to make the final decision”.

Last Friday at the Uyo International Stadium inauguration game against the Black Meteors of Ghana, Keshi had a first-hand opportunity to assess the player and his final verdict was that the player is good enough for the main national team.

He subsequently ordered him on the plane to Abuja for the remaining two games and Bobby is presently at the Bolton White Apartment with the rest of the stars from the Nigerian league.

    “Before now, assistant coach, Daniel Amokachi had said the player is as exciting as former Super Eagles skipper, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, a view also held by his other assistants, Hyandonou Valere and Ike Shorunmu”. My question is, can Keshi give him a chance to play? Because he did the same thing to Rabiu Ibrahim. Rabiu has what he takes to played the JJ Okocha role but he just gave him few seconds to played against Catalona. Hopefully, this guy will play under Keshi. We need a sound coach please. God bless Nigeria!

    I watched that guy called Kingsley Sokari and I saw an excellent player in him. I think he will go places if given the opportunity.
