Sammy Ameobi In Talks With Keshi

Sammy Ameobi In Talks With Keshi

As reported in the Chronicle last week, Ameobi junior is considering playing a part in the Super Eagles’ bid for the African Cup of Nations.

For now he is in Brazil solely as a supporter to roar on big brother Shola and was an interested spectator along with the Ameobi family in Porto Alegre during Nigeria’s 3-2 loss to Argentina.

Ameobi donned a Nigeria shirt in support of his brother but could be wearing one for real if he decides to go with the Super Eagles next term.

After the game – which Shola played no part in – the Ameobis met Keshi but the mood was very much celebratory as Nigeria prepare to face France.

That will set up a reunion between Shola Ameobi and his former club-mates Mathieu Debuchy and Moussa Sissoko as well as ex-Toon star Yohan Cabaye. French boss Didier Deschamps has admitted the second round clash will be far from easy.

He said: “It will be a tough game. I watched the first period against Argentina.

“This team (Nigeria) is solid and have the ability to defend well. They have a very good goalkeeper, they are quality up front with speed.
