German-born goalkeeper Maduka Okoye has declared himself available for the Super Eagles ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Maduka Okoye is one of three Nigerian players born in Germany on the radar of Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr.
The others, Chinedu Ekene and Ufumwen Osawe, are yet to confirm if they will play for the Super Eagles or Germany.
Okoye may have a shot at making the tournament squad to Russia, as first choice, Karl Ikeme is hospitalised with Leukaemia.
Rohr, who is in Russia for tomorrow’s World Cup draw told Own Goal that he will add Okoye to his pool of players next year when they play their friendly games.
He said, “There’s another goalkeeper we have in our sight now. He plays with Fortuna Dusseldorf in Germany, Maduka Okoye, born in Germany but has agreed to play for Nigeria.
“We will look at him in the coming games to see if he will be able to push for a spot in the team we are preparing for the World Cup.”
