One of the players believed to be on the radar of Nigeria football officials, Felix Agu has been handed an invitation back to the Germany U21 squad.
Felix Agu like Hoffenheim center-back, Kevin Akpoguma was expected to commit to Nigeria but he has sensationally emerged as one of the 23-players invited by Head coach Stefan Kuntz ahead of Germany’s European Championship qualifiers against Moldova (9th October) and Bosnia and Herzegovina (13th October).
According to the information on Germany Football Federation website, Felix Agu and his teammates will travel to the Moldovan capital of Chisinau before returning to Germany to face Bosnia and Herzegovina in Fürth.
The 23-man squad contains four new faces: Florian Wirtz (Bayer 04 Leverkusen), Linton Maina (Hannover 96), Lars Lukas Mai (SV Darmstadt 98) and David Raum (SpVgg Greuther Fürth). Felix Agu (SV Werder Bremen) and Niklas Dorsch (KAA Gent) return to the squad.
Kuntz must do without the injured Arne Maier (Hertha BSC), Josha Vagnoman (Hamburger SV) and Ismail Jakobs (1. FC Köln).
Amos Pieper (Arminia Bielefeld) will also miss the first fixture as he serves a suspension after being sent off last time out.
Luca Kilian, who signed for FSV Mainz 05 ahead of the 2020/21 season, will take no part after discussions with the player and his club.
