Junior Ajayi for the Super Eagles?
Super Eagles winger Junior Ajayi was on target for his club Elhaly yesterday in their 3:0 demolition job on El Masry in the top quality Egyptian league. The versatile 24 year old, who also plays as a centre forward or either sides of the flanks, now has 5 goals and 2 assists across 14 league games this season in performances that put him in the fray for national team consideration. The 2016 Olympics bronze medalist last featured for the Super Eagles against Serbia on March 2018 in a 2:0 loss. He was unfortunate to miss out on the final squad to the world cup. A call up to the national team based on his recent consistent performances in Egypt will not be out of place.
