Shola Ameobi In Line For International Recall

8 years ago

Interesting reports coming out of Africa are claiming that Shola Ameobi is in line for a recall to the Nigerian squad.

Coach Stephen Keshi is to name a twenty five man squad for a 2014 world cup qualifier against Kenya later this month, with Shola’s name expected to be on the list.

The African Nations fiasco ended in bad blood as Newcastle seemingly blocked Shola taking part, with Demba Ba having left and Papiss Cisse the only other senior strike option left, apart from Nile Ranger…

Of course Newcastle now have Gouffran in the first team and Sissoko playing in and around Cisse, so Shola is now some way down the rankings at St.James’ Park.

It would appear Newcastle United and Alan Pardew would now be unlikely to stand in the way of any call-up so we await with interest to see if Fenham’s finest continues his belated international adventure.
