Idowu’s arrival was confirmed on the Super Eagles verified Twitter handle on Sunday.

The 25-year-old was initially included in the standby list released by Gernot Rohr ahead of the World Cup qualifier against Algeria and the friendly with Argentina.

  • Who be this one again na??

  • better left back. nice one

  • I hope u can be as good as Echejine during his prime days !

  • He knows what he want not like tammy and Solanke who are fooling themselves with english FA. They are now amazed bcoz they called them up for international friendlies only time will tell if they would not be use and dump like others, today nedum onuoha and Jordan ibe are begging nigeria to give them chance but the door is closed for them bcoz they rejected us when we needed them most.

  • is he a left back? pls s/eagle needs a complete leftback.

    • Eliakim 1 year ago

      Ah Aina ain’t bad. He’s got pace,zest and importantly confidence.Its just about smoothening out his rough edges via gametime.

  • Aina beta pas all of them

    • Dave 1 year ago

      Aina is not a left back he is a Right back.. they tried him in that left because echejile was not around.. And right now in the team there is need for a natural left back..

  • Nice one! but Tryonne Ebuehi too should be given a chance also to show what he has for us.

  • Good for increase the competitions for the place at world cup 23…man

  • Please which club does he plays

  • Abdulmuhmin andah 1 year ago

    Someone should pls analyse his ability as a left back for us…..
    I have heard of him several times but nothing really in YouTube about his football artistry.
    I hope he’s a hard working and fearless defensive addition like balogun and ekong.
    Rohr should invite Samuel kalu(kaa gent) as well as Samuel adegbenro(Rosenberg).
    Those guys aforementioned are viable deputies for Victor moses and Alex iwobi at the front wing.
    I was able to watch Tony nwakaeme closely against Algeria, I think either Paul onuachu or Victor osimhen is better than him in the forward line…

  • kingmaker 1 year ago

    Dele Aiyenugba, Hopoel Ashkalon consistent goalkeeper is back and better. Gernot Rohr may have to look his way. This guy seems to hav what we need now in the absence of Ikeme & Enyeama.
    I vote for his return!

  • ifeayi david 1 year ago

    Stanley Amuzie on loan to lugano in switzerland from sampdoria should be given a chance.

  • elliot wilkie 1 year ago

    Adegbenro(Rosenberg) and Samuel Kali(kaa gents) paul onuachu too will be great additions,

  • Joshua 1 year ago

    Abduljeleel Ajagun and that midfield guy with gent should be given a chance

  • Joshua 1 year ago

    I think Ayenugba, Anderson Esiti, Abdul Ajagun, Samuel Kalu, Sodiq Umar, Aminu Umar, Taiwo Awoniyi, Sone Aluko, Adegbenro, Stanley and Dominic Solanke should also be given a trial.

  • Remove ihenacho out of that team. And bring on Adi fenaldo from Portland timbers

  • Thank god we are having many oyibo in the defence lineup.

  • You forgot to include Jegede, the Ajegunle Leopards striker and Clarus, the Abriba Devils left back.

    • My comment is for Joshua who thinks it’s open camp for anybody he can think of,nregardless of form, time restraint, coach’s needs and fit. Above, I meant to say Finidi George.
