Ibrahim Sanusi of CF Montreal has received a late invitation to the Nigerian team ahead of this weekend’s international friendly match against Mexico.
Sanusi will now go to Los Angeles to train with the Nigeria Professional Football League players, who will be coached by NFF technical director Austin Eguavoen.
The former Nasarawa United player ended the 2019 NPFL season as the top scorer with 10 goals in 22 matches, and he joined Major League Soccer from 36 Lion FC in January.
So far this season in the American top-flight, he has played six matches for Wilfried Nancy’s side but he is yet to open his goal account.
“CF Montreal forward Sunusi Ibrahim has been selected by Nigeria to take part in a friendly against Mexico, this Saturday, at the Memorial Coliseum, in Los Angeles,” read a statement from the club.
“The Super Eagles will continue their preparation for the 2022 African Nations Championship, while Mexico is completing their preparation for the Concacaf Gold Cup, which begins on July 10, in the United States.
“In 2019, Ibrahim played three U23 Africa Cup of Nations matches with Nigeria, tallying one assist in 193 minutes of play.”
