Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has invited Anderson Esiti who plays for PAOK Saloniki in Greece, to replace the injured Wilfred Ndidi, for the September 10 friendly against Ukraine.
Ndidi tweaked his hamstring in Leicester City’s 1-1 draw at Chelsea in the Premier League.
He is expected to be out for two weeks.
Esiti, 25, has been impressive for his former club KAA Gent of Belgium, which earned him a lucrative transfer to the Greek champions this summer.
“We are thinking about Anderson Esiti of Paok Saloniki, to replace injured Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi for the friendly match against Ukraine on September 10,” Rohr told SportingLife.
