Olympic gold medalist Victor Ikpeba begs Genort Rohr to hand the median call to Arsenal star Bukayo Saka for Super Eagles ahead of England.
The 18-year-old Nigerian descent who just penned a new long-term contract with the Gunnars until 2024 summer after enjoying a fine debut season.
Saka has impressed for Arsenal since the Premier League’s resumption in June, starting six of the north London side’s seven games, notching two assists, and scoring in their 2-0 win over Wolves last weekend.
Arsenal number 77, who was born in London through his Nigerian parent has represented England at under-16, U17, U18 and U19 levels after cap-tied to England when he started in a 2-1 win against Israel at the 2018 European U17 Championship but he is still eligible to play for Super Eagles at the senior level.
Watching the Arsenal Vs Leicester City game and I think Gernot Rohr should invite Bukayo Saka to the Super Eagles camp once the paperwork have been concluded.
