Enyimba’s Anayo gets Super Eagles call up

Anayo Iwuala of Enyimba has been called up to the Super Eagles team for the AFCON qualification games against the Republic of Benin and Lesotho.

It is the first senior call up for Anayo, who has maintained a good form for Enyimba and a higher ranking amongst Nigerian league fans this season.

Enyimba statistics confirm that the winger has featured in 19 of Enyimba’s 20 matches this term, scoring two goals and assisting eight others.
